    Draw from Basic Shapes

  1. 1

    Draw an X. This will form the centre of the leaves and help you place them.

  2. 2

    Create an oval around each arm of the X. Each of the four lines should form the centre line of the ovals.

  3. 3

    Adapt the tops of the ovals into heart shapes. To do this, draw a V in the centre of the tip of each oval, with the centre of the V meeting the centre line. Round out the sides of the V to make them softer and more like the top of a heart. Erase any leftover lines from the original oval shape.

  4. 4

    Draw a thin rectangle coming down from the centre of the X. This stem shape might be overlapped by some of the leaves. At the bottom of the rectangular stem, create a slanted line rather than a straight one for a more realistic look. You now have a lucky four-leaf clover of your own!
