The human heart is one of the most essential parts of the human body, and getting to know it is important for overall health and wellbeing. Without further ado, let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Grab a black fineliner pen and draw a circle in the center of your page.
Add another, smaller circle to the top right corner.
Connect the two circles with two curved lines in an “F” shape, without the second spoke.
Now, add three slightly pointed circles to the top of this…
Connect the left and central one with a “u” shape, and the central and right circle with a “v” shape. Connect this to the “F” shape with an angled line, and then bring a curved line down across, out, and down to meet the spot above the bottom circle. Add a small half circle to the top line.
Draw a “teardrop” shape to the left of the shape, and a curved line to the left of the top section.
Use a ruler to bring two lines down from the edges of this curve, and connect them to the shape at the bottom, creating a cylinder shape.
Add a small line to the right of this, around halfway up, connecting it to the shape beside it. Then, bring a curved line down on the left, and take this across to a point, before angling it back up to meet the bottom circle.
Add another circle just below the cylinder…
And then draw two curved shapes in a “V” below this.
Add another small circle to the right of the one at the bottom.
Now, add two small, curved points inside each of the bottom circles.
Now add another curved shape to the right of this second circle, adding a curved point to the bottom.
Draw another curved “v” shape halfway up this shape, and then add a circle above this.
Bring a curved line down on the left, and take this across to a point on the right. Then, take the line across and up towards the top left-hand corner of the page.
Add three horizontal “cylinder” shapes to the top left of the cylinder at the top.
Bring two more of these shapes down below the top spoke of the “F”…
Grab a blue pen, and use this to shade the shape at the bottom, the circles in the bottom left, the “F” shape, and the sections at the top.
Use a lighter blue pen for the curved shape on the left.
Use a red pen for the shape at the top, the cylinders at the sides, and the circles on the right.
Shade this section with a pink pen…
And then use a purple pencil to fill in the spaces around the edge.
Grab a ruler and a black fineliner pen and make a series of lines all around the edges of the heart.
Add arrows with arrowheads to the correct section of the heart…
And then use the black pen to add the correct labels all around the heart to complete your diagrams. On the left side, from top to bottom: Superior vena cava, Right atrium, Pulmonary valve, Tricuspid valve, Right ventricle.
On the right side, from top to bottom: Aorta, Pulmonary artery, Pulmonary vein, Left atrium, Mitral valve, Aortic valve, Left ventricle.
And voila – you have the key to your heart; and who could ever ask for more than that?
