A simple video version to begin with!

Before proceeding with the step-by-step version of this tutorial, you can try the video lesson found below. It's slightly different from the version found on this page, but it's a good start to learn how to draw this character quickly and easily.



Step 1

First, sketch the head of cupid using a long oval shape. Notice that this is not a perfect shape. The top is narrower and the bottom of the head is a little bit flat.

Next, draw a thin rectangle to illustrate the body. Once you are finished, you can draw another smaller rectangle below the first one to represent the legs of the cartoon character.

It's now time to add smaller details (especially inside the head). Draw large pupils using circles. These pupils must be close to each other. The nose and the mouth are made from small curved lines. A small dot is used to create the belly button.
