How to Draw a Cross, Cross

How to Draw a Cross, Cross

Step 1.

Okay guys, start with a simple crisscross design and then move along to step two.

Step 2.

Starting at the top, draw out the tip of the middle part of the cross, and then draw out the side bars the same way but shorter.

Step 3.

You are already almost done with this tutorial. All you have to do now is finish drawing out the middle stem or base of the cross. Be sure that the bottom tip is the same as the arms and top.

Step 4.

For the last step, all you have to do is first erase the guides that you made in step one, and then draw out the tattered scarf or sash that is collapsed on the arms of the cross.

Step 5.

I didn't draw in the roses because some of you would rather just have a plain cross. When you are done, your drawing should come out looking like the one you see here. All that is left to do now is color it in.

Description: An okay guys, up next is a drawing that I did yesterday or the day before and it’s going to be on another object that is sacred. I have drawn quite a few of these objects before but if you look at all the titles none of them are just simply, “how to draw a cross", step by step”. So now you know what this next tutorial is, and if you look at the design concept I think it came out great. The only thing that I might change later on down the road is the background color. Some of you may think it looks good, but maybe a lighter background shade would be better. Then again, the colors sort of mingle nice with each other don’t they? Anyways, the design for this cross only took me about twenty minutes from start to finish. As far as making the steps, it didn't take me too long making those because in the beginning my whole goal was to make a tutorial that can actually show you how to make a cross and be easy at the same time. I actually have a poster similar to the drawing you see here but on the bottom of the cross in my poster, there is a verse from the book of Peter. I love the cross poster I have, it’s tacked to my wall above the headboard of my bed. The tutorial shouldn’t be too complex to follow, but if you’re a novice artist, you might want to take your time and maybe use a ruler to make the straight lines for the cross. If you take your time and follow the steps, you should be able to "draw a cross" easily. I have to go right now because there is a lot more for me to upload. Have fun guys, and be sure to keep those pencils moving!
