An anchor is not only a device to moor vessels to the sea bed but also acts as a nautical symbol. The shape reminds us of sailors who battle through rough weather to transport objects from one place to another connected by the sea. The shape resembles an inverted T.
Step 1: Draw an oval.
Step 2: Sketch horizontal and vertical guides in it.
Step 3: Draw an annular ring over a four-sided structure with rounded corners.
Step 4: 2 straight lines emanate from the four-sided figure and reach the base. A semicircle is drawn.
Step 5: Sketch 2 fin-shaped structures at the sides.
Step 6: A curved line traverses the entire figure.
Step 7: Give an inner margin to the four sided figure and put a roundish cap on it.
Step 8: Make the typical anchor shape by drawing arches.
Step 9: A pointed figure is drawn at the bottom.
Step 10: The fin-shaped tips are detailed.
Step 11: A thick rope is sketched.
Step 12: The rope is continued following the guide.
Step 13: The rope sketching is finished.
Step 14: Proper shading is done to emphasize the form.
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.
