Yesterday I had an idea to make a lesson on something that millions of people use, and hold sacred. Since Christmas is just right around the corner, I thought that making a lesson on "how to draw rosary beads", step by step would be something that folks would appreciate. Rosary beads are commonly used amongst folks who follow the Catholic faith. I don’t know too much about what the rosary stands for because I myself am Christian. I can however tell you that the Rosary is also known as prayer beads and they represent a series of prayers for each bead on a rosary. The first prayer is ‘Lord’s Prayer, followed by Hail Mary, Glory Be to the Father, and Fatima Prayer’. I was going to do one of two things, either make a rosary wrapped around a rose, or make something simple which is a set of rosary beads spread out in the shape of a heart with the cross in the center. I tried both sketches and obviously I ended up liking the heart design. It is simple enough for anyone to tackle, and it can even be colored in any shade you like. I know you will enjoy this tutorial because there are plenty of people out there that use these beads faithfully. So I hope you like drawing a rosary, or rosary beads. I will be back with some more cool tutorials for you all so try and stay tuned in on this chilly Saturday. Peace out people and God bless.
