Valentine’s Day Drawing Ideas: Love Hearts

Love hearts are the most popular symbol of Valentine’s Day. Here you can choose from several ways to draw a heart, from a simple straight heart to a nice curved one. Once you have mastered drawing the heart, the perfect Valentine’s day drawing idea is to wrap the heart with a simple wavy banner that will carry the message to your loved one.

Our first heart is a simple classic heart drawing. This is a simple straight lines version, often used as a heart icon, which makes for a perfect first heart shape to learn to draw.

How to draw a nice curved heart

Here is another way how to draw a heart. We will just curve the pointed end of the heart a bit. Another simple trick is to slightly overlap the starting circles, to make the heart shape pop out to 3D.

A great way to add a short message to your Valentine’s drawing is to draw a heart with a banner across it. Simply use the wavy banner from our “how to draw a banner” tutorial.

Play with different placements, but running the banner across the heart slightly at an angle seems to work the best, as it nicely matches the shape of the curved love heart skewed to the side.

How to draw a heart with wings

Here is another Valentine’s day drawing idea – add some wings to your love heart.

This flying heart takes its wings from the parrot in our “how to draw a bird” tutorial. Just pick up the parts from that tutorial to draw a lovely pair of wings for your Valentine’s heart drawing. The lettering is optional.

(No birds were harmed in the making of this drawing.)

How to Draw a Banner

Here is the tutorial with detailed step-by-step instructions on how to draw a banner.

You can choose from three different banners: a simple straight banner to get you started, a nice wavy banner for a better look, or an ultimate double banner if you need space for a longer message.
