How To Draw Jesus, Step by Step, Drawing Guide, by Dawn
|Description:Well it’s official, the holidays are here and so is a lot of different religions. The reason why I am uploading this lesson today is because a member asked me if I could make a tutorial on ” how to draw Jesus “, step by step and I said why not. I already have two lessons of this religious character, one of them is on drawing Jesus on a cross, and Jesus Christ. This means I really don’t have too much to say about the person in the image. All I can say is that drawing Jesus as we see him in pictures, statues, and books, may be a bit difficult for novice artists to tackle. For me I had to tweak the sketch several times, and I was also stumped on how I was going to make the sketch into a step by step lesson. After I got the image of Jesus sketched in just right, I then had to choose a color for the background and for the flesh. This was tricky for me too because I had to find a shade that would look good to color his face in with, and to be monochromatic in the background. I finally decided that a brown colored tan would be my best bet because this way here you can experience the full effect of Jesus beauty, and have a nice subtle background laying behind him. In case you are wondering, yes I do believe in God and I do believe that Jesus was the son of God. I also believe that God sent down his only begotten son to die on the cross to save all man kind. He died for our sins so we could live sinful, if that makes any sense at all. Anyways, I took great pride in sketching out this image of Christ, and I have a feeling that many of you, not all, will have fun learning how to draw Jesus, step by step too. I will be back later with some other cool lessons coming your way so stay tuned in guys!
How to Draw Jesus
Documentation Download Documentation Download Documentation Jesus Christ is the central person in Christian belief and practice. He instills hope, trust, and faith in others. It will be necessary for you to keep this in mind when painting Jesus Christ in order for the precise or relative divinity to be reflected in your picture. Here’s how to draw him in a simple manner.
- 1 Decide on the overall size of the figure. Before you can begin painting Jesus, you must first determine the relative length of the figure you wish to depict. As a result, you have the option of adjusting the figure on each particular piece of paper. In neither case should it be possible that the paper is too large and the figure is too tiny, nor should it be possible that the figure is too huge and does not fit the entire figure properly. This is done in order to preserve a sense of balance between the design page and the final product. Make a rough sketch of a cross. When you’re drawing the body, you’ll be able to use this as a reference. However, be careful to use a light touch so that you can quickly remove
- The outcome of your painting after keeping the backdrop and foreground in mind will decide how the background and foreground compliment each other and how your picture is displayed in its whole.
- 2 Determine the amount of space necessary for the arms. You must examine how much vertical and horizontal space the drawing will take up before proceeding. The design of Jesus must fit on the sheet of paper, and you must avoid leaving less space for the arms in the process. In this illustration, the arms are stretched horizontally across the body. Because of this, a large sheet of paper is necessary. Create a drawing of the head and hands. An oval for the head should be drawn at the top of the vertical line.
- This oval is just intended to serve as a guideline for how much space a certain element will require, and you must encapsulate the specific part inside this area. When the real pieces are completed, you may remove the ovals and lines that were drawn.
- s3 Make a large rectangle on the paper. The drawing must be able to be inserted both horizontally and vertically. This rectangle will serve as a guideline for drawing the torso inside the confines of the rectangle.
- As a result, you are ready to begin working on the features and details, such as the hair and eyes. You may also work on the lips, beard, and other characteristics.
- 4 Begin with the finer points of the design. You are permitted to begin drawing hair. Draw wavy or straight lines starting at the top of the head to get this effect. Typically, you must begin in the very center of the partition because Jesus’ images virtually always have the center parting in them. Begin at this point and work your way up to the shoulders and back. It is not necessary to be concerned if the hair strands are not evenly spaced. Due to the fact that it is hair, it will appear all the more original if it is not perfectly straight or well styled
- Ensure that the hair strands are a few inches below the shoulders. When it comes to Jesus’ hair, it’s a touch longer than his shoulders.
- 5 Begin with the characteristics of the face. Make your brows a little lower than your forehead. You may begin to create the eyes just below the brows if you choose. In order to draw the eyes, draw two curving lines that are extended and pointed at both ends. Another line can be drawn over the upper curving line of the eyes. In addition, if there are two lines for either the upper or lower lash line or the eye lid, it gives the eyes a more realistic aspect.
- According to your preference, you may draw guide lines for the eyes, nose, and mouth. Make ‘u’ shaped pupils on the interior of the eyes. The look of surprise or shock is created by the pupil being a perfectly round circle. A ‘u’ has a calming effect on the eye. Make a curved line for the nose once you have completed the brows and the eyes, and you are finished. At start, there will be two curving lines to follow. The first will be a long line that will run the length of the nose, and the second will be a smaller curve that will finish off the nose.
- 6 Mustaches and beards are optional. Make your lips as tiny as possible. Alternatively, you might draw the lips slightly higher to depict a smiling Jesus, or you could draw them straight for a more straightforward look.
- Forming a mustache and a beard around the lips should be done very delicately. Vertical shading may be used on the mustache and horizontal shading could be used on the beard. The beard will begin from the lips and will stretch all the way to the ears. Then you may make your beard as long as you like. The beard seems to be a triangle with the tip pointing downward. However, it is not a perfectly symmetrical triangle.
- Always keep in mind that a minor discrepancy in the characteristics will not be a major issue if you want to outline the design later on. The outlined picture differs from the sketched image
- The image changes appearance even after coloring it if you intend to color it later
- Additionally, you may construct two ovals at the end of each arm for the hands. In the future, you could want to construct fingers that are bent upwards. Always remember to make the fingers somewhat pointed at the end and thicker at the beginning of the movement.
- Make the scarf for the top in the appropriate manner. Extra lines should be drawn on the clothes to highlight folds in the fabric to make it appear more visually attractive.
- 8 Carry out the shading. You may choose to shade the drawing as you go or after you have completed the entire figure, depending on your preference.
- When there is a fold, the shading or the pencil strokes become darker and thicker. For example, on the robe where it is folded. Additionally, you may shade darker at the end of each feature to make the features stand out more. While shading, you can gently hold the pencil or color you are using in your hand. This will assist you in adjusting the thickness and intensity of the color as well as its saturation.
- Folded paper causes the shading or pencil strokes to become darker and thicker. Suppose you’re folding a robe and you see a fold. Additionally, you may shade darker at the end of each feature to make the characteristics stand out more. While shading, you can carefully hold the pencil or color you are using. In addition, it will assist you in adjusting the thickness and intensity of the color as you see fit.
- After you have completed the entire picture of Jesus, you may erase all of the pencil guidelines.
Create a new question
- Question Does it matter whether he’s crucified? If that’s how you honestly see Jesus, there’s nothing wrong in drawing him that way. Question Is it necessary to draw a halo around my head? Due to the fact that Jesus’ halo was not visible when he was walking about on the earth, it is not required
- Yet Question Is this how God actually appears to be like? In reality, these are merely a few simple concepts. It is impossible to imagine what God appears to look like. It is impossible not to feel terrified if we were to see what he looked like. God had to conceal his face and only display his behind to the people in the Old Testament because of this, as stated in the Bible. How do you realistically draw the eyes and the rest of the face? Make use of shading, highlighting, and blending techniques. If you don’t have a blender, you may use your finger to mix the ingredients, and a white pencil can be used to accent the highlights. You’ll also want a decent eraser. Question What is the best way to remove unwanted lines from my face? You may just use a regular eraser, but be careful not to smudge any other lines while doing so
- Question What color was Jesus’ robe, and where did it come from? Given that we don’t know for certain, you can use your imagination to paint it any color you like. Question To draw my outlines, do I need to use a sketch pen or may I use a regular pen? No. You may use any type of pencil, pen, marker, brush, or other tool to create your outlines. Outlining just draws attention to the scene
- It is not required to be included at all if you do not like to
- And Question I can’t remove the additional lines without also removing the rest of my face. What should I do in this situation? That’s OK with me. In the event that any of the lines are removed, the impression of the erased face will most likely still be evident. Make a second trace of the facial outline
- Ask a question. Should I use a pen or a pencil to do this task? I recommend using a pencil so that any mistakes may be addressed and remedied as soon as they occur. Question What is the color of God’s hair? “His hair on his head was white as wool, as white as snow,” the Bible says of the young man. God’s hair is white and curly, therefore we may presume that.
Question Does it matter whether he’s crucified? If that’s how you honestly see Jesus, there’s nothing wrong in depicting him that way. Question Is it necessary to add a halo around the object I am drawing? Due to the fact that Jesus’ halo was not visible when he was going about on the earth, it is not required. Question Is this how God actually appears to be looking at you? It’s really nothing more than a few basic concepts. It is impossible to imagine what God appears to appear like. It is impossible not to feel terrified if we were to see him in person.
- Can you tell me how you create realistic eyes and other features?
- Alternatively, if you do not have a blender, you may use your finger to mix the ingredients, and a white pencil can be used to highlight the areas that need to be highlighted.
- Question What is the best way to get rid of unwanted lines on my skin?
- Question: What color was Jesus’ robe, and how did he get it that colour?
- Question Is it necessary to draw my outlines using a sketch pen?
- You may use any type of pencil, pen, marker, brush, or other tool to draw your outlines on the paper.
- Question Because I can’t remove the additional lines without also removing my face, I’m stuck with this situation.
- It’s all right.
- Question: Trace the contour of the face once again; Using a pen or pencil, do you recommend I do this task?
- “His hair on his head was white as wool, as white as snow,” the Bible says of the king.
- You might also use a charcoal pencil for outlining, which is quite thick and can be wiped with the suitable eraser
- Almost all of the lines will be wavy, including the lines on the forehead, eyes, nose, lips, mustache, beard, fingers, and the robe
- Almost all of the lines will be wavy, including the lines on the robe
- Make use of the proper stationery. Outlining might be accomplished with sketch pens. You must be cautious not to leave the sketch pen on the paper for an excessive amount of time, since this can result in a splotch or a patch. Because curving lines give the drawing a more genuine and lifelike appearance, it is a good choice for portraits. All of the guiding lines or ovals that you draw are for your own reference purposes. You are free to skip it. If you are confident in your ability to draw only by envisioning how much area the drawing will take up, you may proceed in this manner. All you have to do is follow the guide lines very gently. Draw a large number of children around Jesus. Jesus has a special affection for children. If you choose, you may color the painting of Jesus using crayons, water colors, pencil color, or any other colors that suit your taste and degree of comfort. Make borders on all four sides of the page to give it a more professional appearance. The borders may be any size you like, depending on your preference. Draw softly at first, then trace it more heavily once you’re finished. You are welcome to bring a light colored pencil. This is due to the fact that a light colored pencil will produce light lines that are easy to erase as needed
- Try not to smudge lines that you have already drawn because this will negatively damage the drawing. Additionally, start out by drawing it lightly, and then you may go back over it at the end if necessary. The finished product will be really stunning
Thank you for submitting a suggestion for consideration! Advertisement
- Avoid erasing the sheet too many times as this may cause the thickness and clear surface of the sheet to degrade.

Jesus On The Cross Drawing – How To Draw Jesus On The Cross Step By Step
Religions are widely practiced all throughout the world, and Christianity is one of the most widely practiced. The Christian religion has many distinct branches and sects, but one thing they all have in common is that Jesus Christ is considered to be the most significant figure in the religion. Easter commemorates the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, and it is considered to be one of the most solemn holidays in the Christian calendar. Taking the time to learn how to sketch Jesus on the cross is a wonderful way to pay tribute to this historic event in biblical history.
How to Draw Jesus On The Cross – Let’s Get Started!
This instruction on how to sketch Jesus on the crucifixion will start with the actual cross itself, which will serve as our starting point. To create the cross, you may use a ruler to draw the lines, but we encourage that you try to draw it freehand to save time. The reason we would propose this is that if the lines aren’t completely straight, it will appear to be made of wood, which will enhance the appearance of the piece. Whatever method you use to draw the lines, you should be able to complete the majority of the cross at this point.
A banner with the letters INRI will also be drawn towards the top of the cross, which will be shown there.
Step 2 –Draw the head and arms for Jesus
In this phase of your Jesus on the cross drawing, we will begin by sketching the head and arms of Jesus on the crucifixion. It is anticipated that these will be some of the more difficult components of this drawing due to the difficulty of sketching realistic features and proportions in cartoons. In order to make things simpler, you may start by drawing some basic forms with a light pencil and then layering on some detail on top of those shapes. With some wavy lines, we’ll be sketching his long hair, and his crown of thorns will be wrapped around his head, as will his beard.
In addition, they will be attached to the arms of the cross, as illustrated in the reference figure.
Step 3 –Next, draw his chest in this step
Our third stage in our lesson on how to draw Jesus on the cross will involve drawing his chest onto the figure. He will have a lot of muscle and bone structure, therefore his chest will be fairly detailed, and these elements will be created with plenty of curving lines to express this. This area of the body can be very tough to get correctly, so do your best to reproduce the image exactly as it appears in our reference photograph as closely as possible.
The chest will automatically link to the base of the arms and shoulders, and in the following stage, we will sketch his waist and the rags that he is wearing to complete the portrait.
Step 4 –Now, draw the start of his waist and legs
The waist and legs of your Jesus on the cross drawing will be the first things we tackle in this section, as we indicated in the previous stage. The rags that he is wearing will be the first thing we sketch to get things started. There will be some more curved lines connecting to one another on these rags to provide the appearance of cloth. After that, we’ll draw the tops of his legs with lines that are identical to the ones we used for his chest and arms. These lines will once again aid in the development of the muscles and shape of the legs.
Step 5 –Add some final details to your Jesus on the cross drawing
During this phase of our instruction on how to drawJesus on the cross, you will complete the final details and elements necessary to be prepared for the next step. This is accomplished by extending the legs downward from the components that you sketched in the preceding phase, as shown in the illustration. He will be standing with his legs relatively close together, and his foot will also be nailed to the cross, as seen in the illustration. You will have completed this really strong image once you have completed these things.
Step 6 –Finish off your Jesus on the cross drawing with some color
It’s time to finish this drawing of Jesus on the cross by adding some color to it to make it more complete. Because of the sad tone of the scenario, we kept the colors in our reference image a little deeper and more subdued in order to match it. If you enjoy this approach to the colors, you might obtain similar effects by using lighter mediums such as watercolors and colored pencils to generate softer tones, which would be comparable to the results achieved with the darker mediums. If you want to emphasize the more positive message of this occasion, it would also be pretty stunning to use brighter colors to do so, so it really depends on what kind of vibe you want to create for it.
Your Jesus On The Cross Drawing is Complete!
Because of its significance to the Christian faith, as we indicated in the introduction to this instruction on how to sketch Jesus on the cross, this biblical event is included in this book. While terrible, it also serves as a symbol of redemption and hope for all of humanity, which is why it is commemorated on this day every year. It is our wish that you had a good time honoring this momentous occasion while working on this drawing. Following completion of all of the steps in this article, there are a variety of options for taking things a step or two further.
Perhaps you could put it into a card that you would present to someone over the Easter season.
We add new ones on a regular basis, so be sure to check back often! Your final Jesus on the cross drawing would be greatly appreciated if you could upload it to one of our Facebook or Pinterest sites so that we can all enjoy it!
The long history of how Jesus came to resemble a white European
The post was published on July 22, 2020, and the update was published on July 22, 2020. By Anna Swartwood House, [email protected], University of South Carolina No one knows what Jesus looked like, and there are no known photos of him during his time on the earth. According to art history professor Anna Swartwood House’s article published in The Conversation, the depictions of Christ have had a tortuous history and have had a variety of functions throughout history. When it comes to portraying Jesus as a white, European guy, there has been heightened scrutiny during this era of reflection on the history of racism in our culture.
- Prominent scholars, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, have urged for a reexamination of Jesus’ image as a white man in the gospels.
- 1350 to 1600 and how it has changed through time.
- However, the image of Jesus that has been replicated the most is from a different historical period.
- Sallman, a former commercial artist who specialized in creating artwork for advertising campaigns, was successful in marketing this photograph across the world.
- Sallman’s painting is the culmination of a lengthy tradition of white Europeans who have created and disseminated images of Christ that are in their own image.
In search of the holy face
Several first-century Jews from Galilee, a region in biblical Israel, shared the same brown eyes and skin tone as the actual Jesus, according to speculation. No one, however, is certain about Jesus’ physical appearance. In addition, there are no known photos of Jesus during his lifetime, and whereas the Old Testament kings Saul and David are specifically described in the Bible as “tall and attractive,” there is no evidence of Jesus’ physical appearance in either the Old or New Testaments. Even these passages are in conflict with one another: The prophet Isaiah writes that the coming messiah “had no beauty or majesty,” yet the Book of Psalms states that he was “fairer than the children of mankind,” with the term “fair” referring to physical attractiveness on his person.
that the earliest representations of Jesus Christ appeared, amidst worries about idolatry.
Early Christian painters frequently used syncretism, which is the combination of visual formats from other civilizations, in order to clearly show their functions.
In some popular portrayals, Christ is depicted as wearing the toga or other qualities associated with the emperor.
Viladesau says that Christ’s mature bearded appearance, with long hair in the “Syrian” manner, combines elements of the Greek god Zeus with the Old Testament character Samson, among other things.
Christ as self-portraitist
Portraits of Christ that were considered authoritative likenesses were thought to be self-portraits: the miraculous “image not formed by human hands,” or acheiropoietos, which means “image not made by human hands.” This belief dates back to the seventh century A.D., and it is based on a legend that Christ healed King Abgar of Edessa in modern-day Urfa, Turkey, through a miraculous image of his face, now known as the Mandylion.
- The Mandylion is a miraculous image of Christ’s face that was created by the Holy Spirit.
- If we look at it from the standpoint of art history, these objects served to strengthen an already established picture of a bearded Christ with shoulder-length, black hair.
- Some people did this to express their identification with Christ’s human suffering, while others did it to make a statement about their own creative potential.
- In this, he posed in front of the camera as if he were an icon, his beard and luxurious shoulder-length hair evoking Christ’s own.
In whose image?
Interestingly, this phenomena was not limited to Europe: there are 16th- and 17th-century paintings of Jesus that include elements from Ethiopia and India, for example. The image of a light-skinned European Christ, on the other hand, began to spread throughout the world as a result of European commerce and colonization in the early centuries. The “Adoration of the Magi” by the Italian painter Andrea Mantegna, painted in A.D. 1505, depicts three separate magi, who, according to one contemporaneous story, came from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, adoring the infant Jesus.
However, Jesus’ fair complexion and blue eyes show that he was not born in the Middle East, but rather in Europe.
Anti-Semitic beliefs were already widespread among the majority Christian population in Mantegna’s Italy, and Jewish people were frequently divided into their own districts of large towns, according to Mantegna.
A move toward the Christianity symbolized by Jesus might be signified by even seemingly insignificant characteristics such as pierced ears (earrings were traditionally connected with Jewish women, and their removal with a conversion to Christianity).
Much later, anti-Semitic groups in Europe, especially the Nazis, would strive to completely separate Jesus from his Judaism in favor of an Aryan caricature, a move that was ultimately successful.
White Jesus abroad
As Europeans conquered ever-more-distant regions, they carried a European Jesus with them to share with the people. Jesuit missionaries developed painting schools where new converts might learn about Christian art in the European tradition. It was created in the school of Giovanni Niccol, the Italian Jesuit who founded the “Seminary of Painters” in Kumamoto, Japan in 1590. The altarpiece, which is small in size, combines a traditional Japanese gilt and mother-of-pearl shrine with a painting of a distinctly white, European Madonna and Child.
Saint Rose of Lima, the first Catholic saint to be born in “New Spain,” is shown in a picture by artist Nicolas Correa from 1695, in which she is seen metaphorically married to a blond, light-skinned Christ.
Legacies of likeness
Edward J. Blumand is a scholar. During the decades after European colonization of the Americas, some say that images of a white Christ were connected with the logic of empire and could be used to justify the persecution of Native and African Americans. Paul Harvey makes this argument. Although America is a mixed and uneven society, the media portrayal of a white Jesus was disproportionately prominent. A huge majority of performers who have represented Jesus on television and in films have been white with blue eyes, and this is not limited to Warner Sallman’s Head of Christ.

How to Draw Jesus Like a Prince (with Pictures)
Do you wish to depict your Lord Jesus in a cheerful manner? Jesus’ figure is frequently shown on a crucifixion or with His palm and heart depicted as burning and bleeding.
The arrival of Jesus’ second coming in the clouds is eagerly anticipated by followers. Making a royal image of the loving Jesus is something else you may try. This article will guide you through the process of selecting the ideal appearance for you and putting it on paper.
- 1Consider the situation. If you want to make it extremely attractive, you may use a gorgeous background, Jesus on a throne, and a few ornaments, or you can make it relatively basic so that it demonstrates grandeur and royal appeal. Know what you’re going to make before you start. With the addition of a throne, you may create a grandiose chamber. Jesus will be seated on a throne, which will be decked out in princely clothes, jewels, and a crown. Because Jesus is light, there will be lights or light flares to illuminate the scene. A representation of Jesus that does not include light is inadequate
- 3 Add depth and dimension to your design. You have the option of keeping the design flat or adding dimensions. To center the page, draw a square or a long/vertical rectangle in the middle of the page. Then, using the four corners of the square/rectangle, draw a line that extends to the four corners of the paper to complete the picture. This will provide a three-dimensional effect.
- While the picture will look closer when it is larger in the center square, it will appear further away when it is smaller in the center square.
4Separate the page into relevant sections. You have the option of placing Jesus in the center of the picture. Make room at His feet so that He can show you the floor. The empty area might be tranquil and white, or it can be decorated with bright colors. Select the objects that will create the desired effect. Flowers, lamps, or pillars can be used to accent the left and right sides of the room. There are two options for the ceiling: it may be open like clouds or you can create a magnificent dome-shaped ceiling.
- 1 Create a jawline using a pencil. The jawline should be shaped like a pointed U. Position the face with the image of Jesus seated in mind. Standing Jesus will need a much higher level of concentration.
- After that, you may sketch the throne and any other backdrop pictures you choose.
2 Draw a line along the hairline. Begin with an A shape directly in the middle of the forehead, and then draw a double line on top of the forehead that looks like an upside down U. The hair on the forehead can be styled in wavy waves that become broader as it approaches the ears. Later on, the length of the hair can be adjusted to perfection. This is the pencil work that has to be light in tone while yet being well defined. It’s possible that you’ll have to remove a lot of lines to achieve the desired effect.
- Details such as eyes, nose, and lips do not need to be emphasised while sketching because they may not maintain the same size when colored as they were when the pencil work was done. If you have a tendency to smear your color, you may want to save coloring the face features until last. After you have completed coloring the entire picture, you may use colored pencils to add thin and delicate lines (over your pencil work).
3Make a L for the bridge of the nose. Simply stretch the lower, sleeping line on both corners to give it a curved and lifelike appearance, and you’re done. 4 Make the brows stand out. You will be required to draw three curved lines. One for the brow, one for the top lid of the eye, and another to finish out the top of the eyelid are all included in the set. To create the pupil, draw a little u shape around the edge of the paper.
- Make the three curved lines on both sides of the face for both eyes. Blue or brown pencil can be used to colour the pupils, with dots within to add additional emotion and a glimmer to it.
5Draw a tiny line around the lips to define them. Add a curved line on both sides of the line to make it more visually appealing. In order to make Jesus grin, lift the corners of the mouth upwards. 6 Make a neck out of it. Draw two lines starting behind the ears and letting them extend out as they descend towards the shoulders as you continue. Make the lips, brows, and hair stand out more. When you are satisfied with how the face appears, you may darken the lines around it, especially if you do not intend to color it in.
- 7 Make the arms out of a piece of paper.
- It may take considerable practice to become proficient at this.
- The perspectives are different.
- It is not necessary for the palm to clearly display all of the fingers.
- To create the finger lines, you may use two different shades of beige hue.
- Cover the neckline with a scarf. In order to create the neckline, form a U shape at the end of the neck.
8Draw a line across the top. For the sides of Jesus, draw two slanting lines on the paper. Make it appear larger on top and somewhat narrower around the waist by adjusting the fit. 9 Begin with the bottom part of the body.
Trace two stretched-out shapes for the robe that will be worn around the legs. Because the position is seated, the drawing will be drawn to resemble that position with lines and shading. In order to depict the legs in the sitting posture, draw some curved sleeping lines.
- The robe should be lengthened even more below the waist, and the lines should become more pronounced as it approaches the hem of the feet. If you want to exhibit a pleated or folded look, draw a box-like design at the hem and make it wavy
- Otherwise, make it straight.
10 Construct the throne. Take the handle of the throne as a starting point. You have the option of giving the handles any form you choose. Simply trace the palm and draw double lines to create the pattern you choose. You may build a double S shape that grows narrower at the end and use it to draw little designs in small shapes on it.
- Because Jesus will be seated on the throne, just a little portion of the throne has to be visible. Only the handle, the legs of the throne, and small pieces of the backrest may be seen
- However, this is unlikely. The backrest should have a feather-like curvature to it. Use a clean outline, borders on the top, and a pattern on the bottom to make it seem as attractive as possible
- Gold or any other shimmering color should be used to outline the edges.
- 1Create little “u” forms on both sides of Jesus’ head and shoulders. You may draw both cherubim at the same time to obtain the forms close to what you want, or you can draw them one after the other. These u forms will be used for the cherubim’s faces, which will be smaller in size than Jesus’ face
- And 2 Make them part their hair. Make a series of curving lines over the face, one after the other. It may not be necessary to create a distinct forehead since the curls will look lovely and will cover the top of the skull. If you like, you may style your hair in wavy waves on your forehead and curl it as it descends. Simply slant the third digit and fill in the rest of the space to make it appear natural
- 3 Make the eyes pop out. Depending on the size of the face, you may just need to draw two little brows and the upper eyelid on one side. For the pupil, you might make a U shape with your pencil. Avoiding the lower eyelid can sometimes give the appearance of an angelic gaze. You may try it out, or you can make the entire eye in the shape of almonds. Make the arms out of a piece of paper. Create two L shapes to serve as the arms. Because the cherubim are generally depicted flying, their arms and necks do not need to be rendered in a straight line. You have the option of mirroring the hands or creating other angles for the same. Make two L shapes for their right arm and two bent lines for their left arm to represent their right and left arms, respectively.
- There might be a little u on the palm for the thumb and a somewhat larger u for all four fingers together on the palm of the hand. With their fingertips, they don’t have to do much in the way of details. Use your preferred coloring or shading tool to shade and make the fingers appear stark, as opposed to using a different tool altogether.
5 Construct the legs. Create the legs in the same manner as you did the arms, with slightly angular lines. For the legs, draw double lines that are thicker at the top and get thinner as they approach the ankles.
- Both of the legs might have a somewhat distinct appearance. When viewing the cherub, only one side of the figure may be displayed, namely either the left or right. As a result, the back might begin at the waist. Using a single wavy line, you can stretch from your waist to your toes, and then make your feet into boxes with curved bottoms. Simply extend the big toe as far as it will go.
6 Make a pair of wings. Begin from their shoulders and draw wavy lines all the way down to their toes. You can make the wings look like they are from a bird. Begin by drawing the outside wavy line, and then have them link the cherub’s body together with another curved line.
- Keep adding more and more wavy lines inside the wing if you like, to make them seem layered
- While coloring, you can use a single hue for the entire cherub. You can use a deeper shade of the color you used to tint the folds and contour of the body
- 1First, create the crown. In order to represent Jesus’ crown, draw an oval or a curved line over His forehead. Begin a bit above the brows and lift both corners upward
- 2 form the crown with your fingers. Make a pointed top, and as it approaches the forehead, form the crown in a round shape to match.
- Diamonds in the color of your choice should be used to embellish the crown. You may shape the diamonds in any manner you like, including round, oval, square, triangular, and so on. The basic color of the crown should be golden, which may be achieved by utilizing golden color. Make sure to avoid coloring the diamonds and other detailed motifs on the crown too rapidly when it is wet and with a bigger brush, as this may cause them to smear.
3 Create a moustache for yourself. Draw the moustache and beard with a thin black or dark brown pencil to give them definition. Make the moustache droop a little. Small vertical lines should be used to sketch. Avoid touching the bridge of the nose or the corners of the mouth.
- Begin the beard around the ears and complete it with a few short vertical lines to give it some definition. Make it a bit longer in the middle to balance it out. For a suitable appearance, only a little bit of the chin should be visible, and the lips should be bow-shaped above the beard. It is preferable to do the moustache and beard after coloring the face since it will stand out more and will not smudge or spread with the skin color as you pencil it in last.
4Build a footstool for Jesus to sit on. Draw a big box shape around Jesus’ feet to provide Him a place to rest. Draw the box’s three sides using a pencil. The fourth side does not need to be created because it will be covered by the hem of Jesus’ garment. To demonstrate the thickness of the footstool, draw two parallel lines across the front horizontal line of the stool. 5 Complete the footstool with a cushion. Make three legs out of paper. Depending on how it is positioned, the second leg to the left may or may not be visible.
Make the legs basic or give them a unique form by using wavy lines and adding a flowery cushion, for example.
- Make the footstool appear deeper by drawing a line up from the right side of the footstool. Draw a leg at the end of it
- The leg towards the rear of the picture tends to be smaller in photos. As a result, make that one a little smaller and a little taller than the front one.
6 Make the feet of Jesus. Draw two u shapes to serve as the shoes’ feet. Double-line each foot to indicate the presence of footwear. The boots can be painted golden or any other color you like.
- Make a border around the hem and the sleeve of Jesus’ robe to finish it off. Double lines or the use of additional color might be used to draw attention to the ends of the robe and the sleeve. Using prints, add different colors to the lace and border to make them stand out. It is possible to put a conspicuous print on the sleeves, such as below the shoulders, to give Jesus’s robe a prince-like appearance. Shape the print in the shape of a cloud or an almond, and add more layers on the interior to complete the print
7 Curtains should be added. Create a 3 shape at the far left edge of the drawing to serve as curtains. Make sure that both the top and bottom ends are open. Make a statement with your bottom half.
- Make a band or a tie-up appearance with double lines in the centre of the curtains, and then knot the ends together to form a bow shape with the loose ends falling down
- Whenever you add the tie-ups, or any other design, to secure your curtains in their center, make the curtain narrower at that place. Make some lines of shade starting just where the curtain is hooked up and working your way outwards (the center). Take note that the lines will be closer together at the hook up and will get wider as it extends further out. Make sure to do it on both sides of the curtain. Produce both curtains in the same manner and paint them in a bright yellow, fuschia pink, lime green, or any other color you like
8Increase the number of curtains. Create curving lines that reach both ends of the curtains. In order to provide the appearance of a border, draw another line within it. Add some curved lines on the interior of the curtain to show folds in the fabric. 9 Make the drapes more visually appealing by including a theme. Add a flowery theme or any recurrent form to it using your pencil. Fill up the remaining blank space with polka dots to make it more interesting. Color it last after you’ve finished coloring the curtains so that the pattern and spots stand out and don’t blend in with the backdrop.
- In order to inject some personality into the design, add a tassle at the end of each curve:
10It’s time to lay a carpet. In order to fill the empty space on the floor, create a long and rectangular carpet. Double-line its borders and maintain it brilliant with a beautifully colored appearance to keep it looking fresh. 11Fill up the blanks as best you can.
Decorate the drapes with a string of leaves in a leaf-like design. You may either create pillars to the left and right sides of Jesus, or you can leave them clear colored in a single hue of your choosing. 12You have completed your depiction of Jesus as a prince-like avatar.
Tentatively, a rug should be woven. In order to fill the empty area on the floor, create a long, rectangular carpet. To keep it bright and colorful, draw double lines around its perimeter to give it a perfectly colored appearance. 11Fill up the blanks with your own ideas and information. To finish off the curtains, wrap them in a leaf-like design. Pillows can be built to the left and right of Jesus, or they can be left clear colored in a single color of your choosing. 12It’s time to finish your picture of Jesus as a royal avatar.
- Ensure that your creation is both complex and elegant. Draw brilliant yellow rays around Jesus and place clouds on top if you like. You may even include windows. In order to make the cherubim stand out, draw it, color it, and shade it.
