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!
