How to Draw an Indian Om

Step 1.

Start off by making a thick perfectly round circle then make a thinner circle on the inside.

Step 2.

Next, draw the surrounding petal like shapes that enclose the circle. These shapes almost make the Om look like a sunflower.

Step 3.

Next, draw in the Indian marks on the Om in the center of the sphere like so.

Step 4.

Lastly, you will add small squiggle lines on each notch between the petal like shapes you drew in step two. Erase the mistakes when you are done because this is your last step.

Step 5.

With the line art, you can color in your drawing of an Indian Om any way you like.

In Indian religion or 'Hinduism', the Om is a sacred syllable that is known as being the almighty Mantra if you will. Even though the word is of only two letters, pronouncing it properly makes three syllables 'a-u-m'. The three sounds make up three worlds which are earth, atmosphere, and heaven which are also the three Hindu Gods known as 'Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva'. To me it looks like the Om is a combination of things to represent what it stands for. Drawing an Indian Om shouldn't be too difficult so I hope a lot of you try out this tut. I will be back later on with more lessons for you all. For now have fun with this one on the Indian Om.
