How to Draw a Cupid Valentine Angel

This free printable drawing worksheet is easier than it looks. It is a basic baby figure with wings holding a bow and arrow. Parents, teachers and homeschool families will be able to use this in class and at home. It can be part of a Valentine's day project, or a separate activity, or done at home as an extra skill building assignment.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not turn out perfect do not get discouraged, learning to draw takes practice so draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back often and try some of my other projects.

To print the image below just highlight it and send it to our printer or save to your device for later. Some people have better luck by dragging the image off to their desktop and printing from there. If you need help see the how to print tab above or try one of the updated files below.

PRINTABLE PROJECT NOTES

Make the pose using a stick figure; bend the arms and the legs. The baby has short arms and legs; and a very big head with almost no neck.  Draw this lightly so you can erase it later.

Once the pose is right draw circles for the shapes of the arms and legs, draw right over the stick figure. Draw the chubby body as a circle for the chest and a bigger circle for the tummy.

Outline the shape made by the circles it should look like a chubby baby.

Keep the hands simple just squares tilted at an angle with the thumbs up. The feet are just bent rounded triangles.

Use a very sharp pencil to lightly draw the features of the face, keep it simple. Give him a big forehead. Put the eye, nose, mouth in the bottom third. Use only a dot for the eye, he has no eyebrow or chin. The hair is curly, thin and short, don't over do it.

Make the wings tiny. Outline them first with curved lines that go out and up. There are not many feathers.

Give him a diaper or ribbon over the special areas.

I suggest you practice drawing the bow and arrow on an other piece of paper before trying to it in the final project. Use a guide line up and down so the ends of the bow are in the right plane. Draw a large bend that touches the guideline. The arrow should be right across the middle of the bow. Draw the bowstring last..
