Description: Hi guys, I am back once again with another drawing lesson and this time it will be on "how to draw a candle". I do have a tutorial on how to draw candles, but I thought that it would be cool to draw just one candle since Christmas is around the corner. I associate the candle with Christmas because people use artificial candle lights to decorate their windows with during this holiday. Of course you know I had to go to the extremes and draw a candle that looks like it has been burning for hours. All the wax is dripping down the sides, and then forms a melted base on the bottom. I personally think that the candle came out looking so cool, and I am pretty sure that you guys will like learning "how to draw a candle step by step" as well. Since I wrote a big description on the candles with my previous lesson some time back, there really isn't anything else to say except, have fun drawing your own candle. When you are done you can decorate, color, and personalize your candle making it fit your needs. If you want to be really festive, you can draw a group of candles that are red and green in color, and add some pretty gold glitter glue to the flames and hang the picture in the window, or on the fridge. I will be back later with some more drawing fun. I think you will like what I submit next. Peace peeps and, don't let your candle burn for too long!
