How to Draw an Anchor Step by Step

Do erase the guides as you proceed with the figure. The anchor is instrumental to fishermen and sailors to stop their vessels from drifting away by wind or water currents. The rope attached to it is long enough to reach the river bed and help anchor a ship. The tips are pointed so that they can get inserted into the moist ground.
