How to Draw an Arrow

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by drawing a long line. This will outline the axis, or the long wooden part of the arrow.

Step 2

Draw another line, parallel to the first. Leave only a small space between the two lines.

Step 3

At one end of the shaft, extend a short line from each existing line, down at a diagonal angle. This will form the bottom of the arrowhead.

Step 4

Draw a line from each line in the previous step, meeting at a point to surround a triangle. This completes the contour of the arrowhead.

Step 5

At the bottom of the arrow, span a short, straight line. From this line, stretch another short at an opposite corner. This begins to outline the nose, a part of the arrow placed on the bowstring.

Step 6

A short stretch from the other side. Then use a final line around the diamond hat.

Step 7

Add dimension to the arrow by drawing a line along the length of the arrowhead and button. Use a short line to surround the ends of the shaft, separating it from the nose and the arrowhead.

Step 8

Just above the button, consisting of a parallelogram – an inclined shape, four sides – along the arrow’s axis. Repeat to form a mirror image on the opposite side. This forms the fletching of arrows, also known as wings or feathers. Equipping the arrow with stability helps it achieve its goal.

Step 9

Decorative texture by strips with parallel lines.

Step 10

Color your arrows. The ancient arrows were made of wood, stone, and metal, thus brown or gray. Modern arrows are made of plastic, metal, fiberglass and other materials. Hence, they come in every color imaginable.
