Artist: Dawn / March 24, 2012

Step 1.

Before you start, you might want to grab a ruler, and eraser because making straight lines can be difficult. Start at the top and work your way down until you have the drawing of a chunky style cross.

Step 2.

Here you will be adding the detailing which will give your cross that dimensional look. Take your time, there is no rush.

Step 3.

Finally, draw the creases and edge lines to complete this drawing on a cross for kids. Clean up the mistakes and you are all done.

Step 4.

Here is your drawing when you are all done. Now you can go ahead and color it in solid, or add some wood grain to your newly drawn cross.
