How to Draw The Nativity

Artist: Dawn / July 21, 2015

Step 1.

You will need to draw six head guides or shapes like so, then the body guides for all the beings involved in this Nativity.

Step 2.

Up next, define the shapes of all the humans, angels, and animals like so. When that is done proceed to step three.

Step 3.

You will now get busy by drawing the faces of all the people and animals in the drawing. The baby should have closed eyes and a curl and Mary and Joseph should have their hoods on.

Step 4.

We will now draw in some of their bodies. This includes the clothing and the hey filled basket. Don't forget to draw the animals bodies as well.

Step 5.

Finish all their bodies and then draw the angel's wing as well as the halos above Mary and Joseph's heads. Add the blanket that is wrapped around baby Jesus and you can proceed to step six.

Step 6.

Lastly, sketch in the wicker style manger and then draw the landscape setting which is the ground, and some tropical style trees. Erase all your mistakes and all of the guidelines/shapes.

Step 7.

Here is the line art. Now you can color in the drawing to and maybe even save the colored image for Christmas time.

Description: I know it's not Christmas but I just had to go and make a lesson that is one of the cutest things I have ever drawn. Today, I will show you how to draw the Nativity scene or just plain Nativity. What is a Nativity? Well, it's a depiction of everyone and everything thing that was part of the birth of Christ. In this Nativity I have the Star of David above the manger which is home to baby Jesus as be sleeps in his hey filled basket. Both Mary and Joseph are present and so are the goats/sheep that where present as well. Mary's husband Joseph was a Shepherd, which is why there are sheep that is part of the manger. There are different depictions of what The Nativity looks like, but this is your basic image. If you are a religious person and are Christian or Catholic, you should like drawing The Nativity. I shall be back soon with some other fun tuts so stay tuned in.
