Whether you need a pot leaf drawing for a school project or for more professional reasons, drawing a pot leaf is considerably easier than you might think. Break it down into basic steps, take it slow, and you're good to go. It is best to always draw with a pencil rather than a pen so if you make a mistake, it is easy enough to fix.

Things you need
Find a picture of a pot leaf that you want yours to resemble. You probably won't be able to replicate it exactly, but you can try to get close.
Start with the basics. A pot leaf is comprised of seven smaller leafs. Each leaf has a "bone" running through its centre. Draw a straight, vertical line, which will be your centre "bone" and the stem.
Draw two "V"s. One is upright and running directly through your centre line. The second "V" is upside down and also directly through your centre line.
Draw a straight, horizontal line that lies between the two "V"s. You now have the basic outline of your leaf. Compare this to your finished drawing and erase and shorten any lines you've drawn that need it. The bottom leaves are considerably shorter and smaller than the top leaves.
Pot leaves have razor-like leaf edges to them, so you'll need to mimic that. Fill in the razor-like edges along each of your straight lines you've drawn, making sure you leave the stem as is.
