1. How to Draw a Pot Leaf Step by Step
Draw a vertical line.
Cut it in half, and then cut the upper half again.
Draw a horizontal line across the upper mark.
Draw a line from the bottom tip of the first line towards the horizontal line, at a 30-degree angle.
Divide the lower half into thirds.
Draw a horizontal line across the first mark.
Add some length to the original line—slightly less than one third its half.
Then draw a horizontal line across it.
Move to the uppermost horizontal line. Connect it with the one below, drawing lines at about 20-degree angles.
Do the same with the second line, this time drawing your lines inward.
Connect the original lower tip of the first line with the corners you’ve just sketched.
Draw a short horizontal line across the first half mark. Then draw similar lines across each of the “rays”, angling them towards the center. There should be seven of them—the usual number of leaves in a marijuana leaf.
Connect these lines, creating the basic outline of the leaves.
Round the upper half of each leaf.
2. How to Finish a Simple Pot Leaf Drawing
Draw curved rays on both sides of the stem of the central leaf. It should have a fishbone pattern.
Connect these rays in their upper part to finish the outline of the leaf.
Do the same with all the other leaves to create a pot leaf outline. When you’re done, outline the main stem as well.
Finally, accentuate the outer edge of the leaf to give a final look to the pot leaf image.
