1. Introduction to This Course and Supplies You Will Need: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day. I'd like to welcome you to this course. This is my Christmas designs drawing course for beginners. You do not have to have any experience at all. Withdrawing to be successful in this course. I wanted to take a moment to go over the supplies and the materials that you will need for this course. The first thing that you'll need is a piece of paper. I just use plain old copy paper that I get from my printer. That works perfectly, and if you have something else that is around your house, that will work as well. You'll need something to draw with. I like to draw with Sharpie markers because they show up really well on my piece of paper, but you can also use a pencil. You can also use oil pastels or crayons or colored pencils or markers. It's completely up to you. Just look around your house to see what you have available to you and go ahead and use that . For some examples of the designs that we will be drawing today, please continue to watch this video. See you soon 2. How to Draw a Bear in a Wreath: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great D today. Today we're going to be making up bear in a reef, so let's get started. The first thing that you'll want to dio is you'll want to get some sort of a round template , and a template is used to make sure that you have a really round circle because for a wreath, we want our circle to be really round. So I went into my kitchen and I found this. This plate, it's a little bit big for my paper, to be honest, but the other things that I got work were too small. Let me show you what I mean. So I got this bowl that I thought would be a good size, but it's just a little bit small, so I thought, Well, if it's big or small, that's okay. I'm going to go with the bigger one so I might go a little bit off of my piece of paper, but that's OK. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to start by putting my template down, and I'm going to draw around my template with my marker and I'm going to go slowly, carefully. So I do my best job. Rico, take my template off. Consented aside. Wow. So that's a pretty big circle. I have a lot of space to use, so that's a good thing. So let's start by me, are bare. So the first thing that we're going to do is we're going to make a curb line and I'm making mine off to the side a little bit because I want my bears had to be tilted just a little. And then what I'm going to do is on top of this, I'm going to make a little hat, so I'm going to come up and I'm going to come up like this and then I'm going to make a low round circle at the top of his hat coming out here on the sides. I'm going to make a little bit of an upside down U and same thing on the other side. Thes are going to be my bears ears. Inside of years. I'd like to add a little bit of detail, so I'd like to add some upside down use, but some lines at the bottom. Now I'm going to come down with a straight line in a straight line, and then I'm going to close that up with slightly curved line. Now I'm going to go back up to his face and I'm going to make his eyes closed because he's thinking and maybe even humming. So I make two curved lines for his eyes, and I'm going to make an awful for his nose area and inside his nose area, I'm going to make a tiny nose. If you'd like to make a mouth, you could do that. But sometimes I like to just leave it plane like this. Now, right here, I'm going to make this scarf. And so what I'm going to do is I'm going to come up. I'm going to come down and around same on the other side. So I came up a little bit. I came down and around, and it's kind of like Hiss Scarf is going around his neck. I'm going to make another part of the scarf coming down this way. So curved line and another curve line and then I'm going to close up and then I'm going to put a little bit of fringe right on the edge. All right, So now this is the scarf. As you can see, my beer has a hat in. His eyes were closed. He might be humming. Now we're going to make his body and so his body is just going to come out from here. I'm going to make a straight line coming down to the edge of my circle that I've made. And then I'm going to make a little line coming down here, and that's going to be his arm. And his arm is going to be tucked behind his body. All right, on this side, I'm going to make a line coming up, but it's not going to go all the way up. Let me show you what I mean. I'm going to go about this far up and then comes straight down like this, and then I'm going to go like this, and that's going to be his arm talked behind his body. I'm going to make us and my circle coming up and coming down. That adds just a little bit of detail to his tummy. And then I'm going to put a little bit of decoration in his hat and in his scarf. So I think I'm just going to be some circles. You get nice and festive. Maybe one more right here. Maybe even one. We're right here and then same pattern for his car. You could make any pattern that you'd like some more over. Here we go. All right. The next thing I'm going to do is I'm going to create a little bit of detail in the reeds. So what? I'm going to dio and you can do anything you like. If you can think of some different types of leaves that you'd like to use, I'm just going to make some curve lines that are touching my read. They're going to look like this. So I'm gonna take a minute and speed up the video, and I'm going to just make these all the way around already. Friends, I'm back now. I made my leaves, and I think what I'm going to do isn't which is going to add a little bit of detail inside these leaves by adding a little bit of a line inside each one of these leave. So I'll be back in a minute going to speed up this video already. I think I'm going to add one more thing. I'm going to add some little Berries in between the leaves and the way that I add Berries as I make a little stem. The little circle at the end, Little stem with a little circle at the end. Sometimes I even make the little Berries on both sides of the reef. See how I'm doing that. So put your little Berries wherever you'd like to. And even if you'd like to make two, I could do that. It's completely up to you. It just adds a little bit more detail to our drawing, so I will be back in just a minute already. Friends, I'm back. So what I'm going to do next is I'm going to kind of look around my review to see if there's any spots that I'd like to add another leave or another berry, too. So right here it's a little bit plane. So I think I'm going to add another couple of Berries there and maybe even one hair. Oh, I like how that looks. I think I'm happy with that. So put as many Berries as you want on their put as many leaves as you want on there. I hope you had fun with this project, and I'll see you next time 3. How to Draw Christmas Trees in Different Ways: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be making different styles of Christmas trees. So let's get started. So I'm thinking that I'd like to make eight or nine different styles of Christmas trees. And if you want to practice these trees and then decide which one you like the best you can go ahead and make them Christmas trees for your family and friends, you commit cards. Maybe that would be a really great idea. So our first tree is going to just be an upside down V. And then at the bottom of thes two lines were going to make a curved line. Let's not forget our chunk. And then I'm just simply going to make some perv lines that air straight, be going down and I'm going toe going to put a star at the top. A small star. If there's another way that you like to make a star, go ahead and do that. I like to make the type of star where you haven't upside down B. You bring two lines out, you bring them in and then you attach these to either side. That's our first Christmas tree. Second Christmas tree. Let's do the same. As far as an upside down B comes straight across, make a line coming down from the center point, and then we're going to make striped lines coming down from the center. It's kind of like a stylized Christmas tree. Now let's make sure that we get a trunk there and maybe one more will fit. There we go at the top of this one. I'm going to make a ball with some little lines coming out that's going to be kind of like my star already for my next tree. I'm just going to have a Siris of triangles, so there's my 1st 1 May 2nd 1 My 3rd 1 My 4th 1 That's it. That makes a pretty cool tree, doesn't it? My next tree is going to go right here, and I'm going to start out with the medium size upside down V, and I'm going to make some zigzag lines. Then I'm going to do the same thing underneath. But I'm not going to have the top part of my triangle. So I come down with slanted lines and then I have my eyes exact line and then I do it one more time. If you have more room on your piece of paper, you can make your Christmas tree even taller. This one would be acute when to decorate with maybe some candy canes. Maybe some ornaments. It's up to you. Put a little star there at the top and let's remember our trunk. All right, next tree. Let me put it down here. I'm going to have an upside down B with a straight line across. Maybe put a little ball at the top, and then I'm going to have some curved lines coming down that are attached to each other. So curve line, curved line, curve line and curved line. Then I can attach some little lights to it. It's up to you. However, you want to decorate these trees. This is your artwork, and you should be able to decorate it however you like. Now I'm going to give well, the trunk, the next tree. He is going to be really tall and skinny, so really tall and skinny tree close up at the bottom, and I'm just going to put some stripes coming down from the centre top. I always started the center top, and then I calm down two different points on the bottom line. Do you see how that works? So it's It's pretty solid right here at the top, and then they spread out a little bit more at the bottom. I'll put a star at the top of this tree, and I want to remember my trunk. So if you can see we're building up a collection of Christmas trees, they all look like Christmas trees, but they're all a little bit different, so you get to decide which one you like the best. So this one's trunk is a little bit different. We're going to make a really long slanted line and then another really long, slanted line, and we're going to close it up at the bottom. Then we're just going to add some branches coming out from the side like this, and they'll get a little bit bigger as they go down, says Start on at the top. And then as we get closer to the bottom, they get a little bit bigger. All right, let's move on to this area right here. Let's see, how about a treat? It looks like this start out with her triangle, close it up at the bottom, and then let's make some stripes on it. And then on the inside of the stripes, let's make some zigzags. If you can think of another type of a line or a design that you'd like to put inside of these initial lines, go ahead and do that. And then we can put some sort of a star at the top. Let's not forget our joke, all right? Last one could go right here, and it's going to be very simple. It's going to be too slanted lines and a curved line. Two more slanted lines, a little bit further apart in a curved line, two more slanted lions and then a girl plane and a trunk and a little bit of a star at the top. So this one needs a little something at the top. You put whatever you want at the top, and then this one is well forgot to put something on the top there. Here we go. I hope you enjoyed this lesson. I'll see you next time 4. How to Draw a Christmas Stocking: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having Ah, great day today. Today we will be creating at Christmas stocking. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to want to dio is we're going to want to make the top of our stocking. So instead of creating a line that goes all the way across, we're going to skip that part in skipped town to a line that looks like this. And the reason why is because we're going to put some treats inside the top of our stocking after we do this, then we're going to make the foot part of our stocking noticed that these this line right here is a little bit slanted. If you want to put it straight, that's OK, but I made mine a little bit slanted. All right, so the foot part, we come down like this and then this is for the toe and then we come back like this. It's a little bit tricky, but with some practice, you'll do fine. So you calm down, you make occur, and then you make another curve and you come around. Now I'm going to pick up my marker and I'm going to go to the back. I'm going to come down, and then I'm going to start like this and make a line that looks like this said that is going to be my Christmas stocking. I'm going to make a little bit of a stitch part at the toe. So I make a curved line with some stitching right here and then for the hell, I'm going to do the same thing. You look like little patches, fabric. Now I'm going to go back up to the top. At this point, you can be creative. Whatever you'd like to put into your stocking, go ahead and do that. So let me give you some ideas you can put maybe a candy cane. That's an upside down, J. Just make sure you stop right Where the imaginary Linus right here. You can make a cute bear like a little teddy there. Maybe a little park, his body in his hands. You can even make a little present with a little ribbon on the top. Like this. Okay, lips. I forgot to put the stripes on my candy cane. Now we're ready to close up the top of our stocking So I make a line here. I keep going just like that. Do you see how I jumped over? The bears paused, and I jumped over the little present. All right, let's see. Is there anything else that you'd like to add? There. It's up to you. You could make a little area like a little's hook area, if you like. You can even make this hanging on a firebreak. A fireplace? This could be our fireplace. This could be a little hook right here. If you even want to make this into a fireplace down here like this, you could even make some flames coming up. Don't let it touch your stocking. Now, if you want to make some brick, What the? The way that you make Brooke brick is you make straight lines. Make sure you jump a ride over that stalking come down. And then up here, we make some vertical lines. And then on the next row, you make vertical lines not in the same row as the other vertical lines. So you move over just a little bit, just like that, It's close that up a little. I'm going to speed this up already. So Let me put a little bit more detail here in the fireplace, just putting some lines. And then I'm going to leave that blank. Maybe I'll put one more line right here. I had a little bit more detail. You can even put a little bit of decorations up here if you like. It's up to you already. I hope you enjoy this lesson Call. See you next time. 5. How to Draw a Snow Globe: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great D today. Today we will be creating a snowman in a snow globe. So let's get started. The first thing that you'll want to do is you'll want to make sure that you have, ah, bowl or something that is super around that you can use as a template to make your snow globe. So I'm just using this bowl and I'm going to take my marker and I'm going to put my bull right in the middle of my piece of paper. And I'm going to go slowly and carefully all the way around my bowl with my marker. Lift that off and then we have a nice round circle. The next thing that we're going to do is we're going to make a base for our snow globe. So this is where a snowman is going to be right here and then down here, we're going to make the base that will be sitting on the table. So I make a slanted line, a slanted line and a straight line. Now for inside here, I'm going to make a snowman, and this is how I'm going to do it. I'm going to start almost to the top, but not quite. And I'm going to make a nice round circle that's going to be my snow man's head underneath that circle. I'm going to make another circle, but it's not going to be a complete circle. Watch what I dio I start about here. I come around and I go like this. So basically it looks to me like it's, Ah, upside down, letter C and then I'm going to do the same thing underneath like another upside down letter C. And this one's going to be a little bit bigger. So we have a smaller circle and then we get bigger and bigger. Now let's make a little bit of snow here on the ground, and then let's move up to the top of our snowman and we could put a hat on him. You can put any kind of have that you'd like on your snowman. I'm going to put just a top hat and it's going to be a little bit slanted, so I make a straight line and I go through my circle at the top. I make two lines up. I come over I make two lines up and then I close it up in the top and then at what I'm going to do is I'm going to just fill this part in with my black looks like my markers running out of ink. I'm going to switch it out after I make this top half. You might want to make a Beanie. You might want to make a Santa hat. It's up to you as the type of hat as to the type of happy you'd like to make. Here we go. That looks cute. Switch that out for another Sharpie. Now what I'm going to dio is I'm going to make some eyes and they're going to be, um, coal eyes. So they're going to be kind of square like this. And again, my snow man's head is tilted to the side a little bit, So I'm going to fill those in. I'm going to make a carrot nose, and that's just a V with a few little lines inside of it. And then I'm going to make some dots for my Snow man's smile. I'm going to come down here and make a couple of buttons two or three buttons. And if you'd like to go down further, you could do that as well. Then I'm going to make his arms and those are just going to be sticks. So I'm going to go like this and then another stick on the other side like that. All righty. Now I'm going to make some little snowflakes, so I'm just going to make some little dots and these were going to represent snowflakes. If you'd like to make your snowflakes a different color, go and do that just all around. If you want to go on top of your snowman with yourself makes you could do that. I generally go around, though it's completely up to you. If you'd like to add a little bit of decoration down here for your snow globe, go ahead and do that as well. Maybe like some little designs down here at the bottom. And then if you'd like to put your snow globe on a table, you just make a straight line. Come across and come over here. Out on the other side. There you go. There is your snow globe with a snowman inside. Hope you had fun. I'll see you next time 6. How to Draw Snowflakes: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we're going to be creating some snowflakes. So let's get started. I'm going to teach you how to make four different snowflakes. As you know, snowflakes are all different. So I'm going to make for different snowflakes. And from there the skills that you learn in this video you could take and you can apply them to snowflakes of your own and make them unique. So the first thing that I suggest that you start out with is a circle, a small circle that's going to be the center of your snowflake. From that center, you're going to make a line going from the top of your paper down to your circle and then coming out the bottom and the line should be about the same size. Now we're going to make a side line here, going through the circle, a swell, and then we're going to make some more lines going through the side like this. These could be shorter lines or the same light as your other lines. Keep in mind, I'm not using a ruler, so it's not going to be perfect and That's okay. All right. So from here, what I'm going to do is I'm just going to decorate thes lines coming out. So I think what I'm going to Dio isn't going to make some small use at the end of each one of these lines. And remember, whatever you do to this line, you have to do it the same toe, all of the other lines right now. Maybe I'll make some of these on each one of these lines, and this might take a little bit of time. Go all the way down. I'm going to speed up the video right here. All right, There's our first snowflake. If there's anything else you can think of to add to the personal flick, go ahead and do it. If not, let's move on to the next one. So again, we're going to start with a circle. I'm going to make this one a little bit bigger, and then I'm going to put another circle right in the center and fill it in with my black marker. No, I'm going to do the same thing. As far as I'm going to make some lines coming down and some lines coming across. And then these lines in the middle are going to go a little bit shorter. They're going to be a little bit smaller than our initial lines. And then I'm going to put a dot a solid dog at the end of each one of these lines. And then I'm simply going to make another one of these clean like this, right below each one of the dots. This is a very, very simple way to make a self lake. Just like if you'd like to make something else in here, Go ahead and do that. Remember, this is your snowflake, and you can do whatever you'd like to decorate it. All right there. Snowflake Number two, snowflake number three and way to put right here. And I think what I'll do on this one is I'll start with my center dot and then I'll make my lines like I've done before. Remember, you want to make the vertical one first, the horizontal one second, and that way you'll know where to put. The other ones said these could be longer or shorter are the same size as the initial lines . On this one. I'm going to make some hearts. Wow, I'm gonna have to make an upside down heart here. I'm not very skilled at that, but I think I'm doing a pretty good job. I do say so myself. We go. No, I think what I'll do here is I'll make some lines going like this, connecting all of these initial lines and then we'll create some dots here. And then if I noticed that my snowflake is looking a little bit plane that I'd like to add more detail. I just said more detail. I think of a line or a shape that I could put in there, and then I just do it. So see, this one's pretty plain. I think I'm going to add something. Think I'm going to add another line here with a dot at the end. There we go, Right, My last one. I'm going to make right here again. I'm going to start with a dot in the middle, and then I'm going to make my lines going vertical, going horizontal and then going to the sides. I'm going to make these pretty long, and then at the end I'm going to put a dog and then it's going to be the opposite of this line. So I'm going to put some lines that look like arrows going towards the dot Going to do that on all of these? Three or four. It's up to you, gorgeous fetus ahead a little bit. Alrighty. So now what I'm going to do is I'm going to put a little bit of a pedal in here in the middle out a little bit more detail to this one already. Friends. There you go. Oh, I think they look so cute. If you feel like one of your snowflakes needs a little bit more detail or a little bit more attention, go ahead and add to it now. And just have fun with this because there's a lot that you could do with snowflakes. Right? See you later. 7. How to Draw a Christmas Cat: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a greedy today. Today we will be creating a Christmas cat. So let's get started. The first thing that you'll want to dio is make an upside down. Be like that. Then we're going to close up this little upside down V with a curved line and then inside that curved line, we're going to make another curve line. Now let's put a little bit of a fall at the top of our cats hat, and then we're going to come down here and make our cat's face and body. So the first thing that you're going to do to make that body this make a curved line and another curve line just like that. No going back up to the top. Let's make some ears, and those are just going to be some triangles. And then inside those triangles, let's make some smaller triangles. Now let's go back down here to the bottom of our Kitty Cats body, and we're going to make some feet. So those were just super long latter use. And then, if you want to put a little bit of nails at the bottom, you could do that. And then let's close this up just like that. Let's go back up to the face part of our kitty cat and our cat's eyes. They're going to be closed. So let's make some curved lines going like this. And then a little nose filled in and then a little mouth. Let's make some whiskers when I make whiskers. I just like to make two or three whiskers all. You look so happy and excited about Christmas. Now let's make a little bit of a background. So this cat is going to be inside, going to make us straight line, trump over his body and make another line. And then I'm going to make another line that runs parallel to that first line. Now, down here, you can make whatever you like. You could make some presents. You could make some categories. It's completely up to you. I think what I'm going to do is I'm going to make present right here, so I'm going to make a box, and then I am going to make a line, a line in a line, three slanted lines, and then I'm going to close those up, and that will make a three D present books, put a little ribbon on it, so I'll put some straight lines down, some lines going across. And then someone slanted lines going up. Maybe I'll even put some more slanted lines going like that. You can even put a ribbon at the top if you like. And then over here, maybe I'll put a ball or cat to play with. It's completely up to you what you'd like to make for your cat. Now, I think what what I'll do up here is I'll make a couple of decorations. So maybe on this side I will make some Christmas lights. So I made a make a line like this, and then I will have some lights coming out the side like this. So basically I made this string and then I doubled it up. And then I made curved lines coming down on either side and then at the top, I put a little bit of a dot there, so that's where the little plug goes into the wire. You know what I forgot on her cat eye for caught his tail. So I'm going to make that right now, so it's going to be a little bit of a curvy tail, so I just make a curved line. Then I followed up with a second car flying over on this side. I think I'll make a little bit of an ornament coming off of the Christmas tree. So makes and branches. And then I'll make the little needles of our Christmas tree coming on each side. Those air, just straight lines coming off of the main branch. See how I'm doing that? Just real quick. Short lines. That's what needs one also, and then this. And then I'll make a little bit of an ornament coming down well on a little bit of a stream . And then I can even decorate this, however, like so I think I'll put some curb lines there. Kerr planes here. It's completely up to you, and then they give you maybe some circles here. Look at how cute that IHS now. Maybe I'll make this into a wood floor, so I just put some lines here. You don't even need to be solid lines, but I do like to make them slanted. So instead of coming straight down like this, like to make him a little bit more slanted going to the side. It's completely up to you. Here we go. Oh, he looks so cute. Alrighty. I hope you had fun with this lesson. I'll see you next time. 8. How to Draw a Nutcracker Soldier: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be making a Nutcracker for Christmas. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to do is we're going to make a curved line like this. This is going to be the top of our Nutcrackers hat. Now we're going to make to sel. I tli slanted lines coming down and then a straight line coming across at the bottom here of this shape, we're going to make two lines coming out, small lines coming down and then we're going to close that up. Now, let's do some decoration inside this hat. If you could think of some decorations that you'd like to put in there, go ahead and do that. I'm going to put a circle here at the top. I'm going to put some circles here on the sides and then I'm going to put a ribbon across. It's going to be a curve driven. And then down here, I'll put like a little crown type shape. That's going to be the hat of my nutcracker. Now I'm going to come down here and I'm going to make his face so I'm going to make a curved line in a curved line, and then this is a little bit tricky, but I'm going to make his face before I close up the bottom. So I'm going to come back up here and make and I another I and then some eyebrows. Remember, eyebrows create expression. So if you want Your Nutcracker to look surprised, you'll put your lines this way. If you want him to look a little bit more serious, you put them this way. So I want mine to look a little bit more serious, so I'm going to put his eyebrows like this. Now I'm going to move down to his nose, so I'm going to make a shape that looks like this, almost like a teardrop. And then underneath that, I'm going to make a mustache underneath the mustache. I'm going to make a beard that looks like this, so it's just too curved lines, and then inside this shape right here, I'm going to make some tea, so I'm going to make two straight lines and then lines coming down like this. Now it's time for me to close up the bottom of the head of my Nutcracker. So I'm going to make some lines going across, and then I'm going to come out a little bit like this, come down and go over, come down and go over the other way. Now I'm going to make my nutcrackers body, so I'm going to come down with slanted lines. Let me show you what I mean. Come down and I come down. But I don't want my lines to touch. This is going to be his waist. I want to make a straight line at the bottom and then I want to make another line coming out this way. Now this white and close those up. Now let's put a little bit of decoration here on this part of his uniform. So I'm going to make a line here, coming out this way, Another line coming out this way and another line in that I'm going to put some dots at the end of those lines, right? So now I'm going to finish up the bottom part of my Nutcracker. I'm going to put the bottom part of his clothing down here, so I'm going to make a slanted line in a slanted line and then a curved line like this. Now I'm going to make his legs with his boots. So I'm going to make some really straight lines here, straight as you can get them. There we go. And then I'm going to put some bands right here, and then I'm going to put some buttons. Four or five buttons. Now I'm going to put a curved line here at the bottom. These are going to be hiss feet, so I make a straight line, a straight line in a straight line. Let me do that again. Straight line, straight line a straight line. Those are going to be his boots. Now I'm going to go back up to his arms in his shoulders. So let me show you how I'm going to make those. So from this corner area, I'm going to come up and then I'm going to come down and I'm going to go about the same length as this waste. So go up and come down just like that. Now I'm going to come over, will come over and then come down. We come down. You see how I did that? All right, Now let's put a little cap on his shoulder here of the top. And then down here, what we're going to do is we're going to make some cups. So the way that we make Cups is we come out a little bit more on each side. We make a slanted line and then we close that up at the bottom and then for his hands. Those are just going to be some semi circles like this. Here we go. Let's put a little bit of buttons right here. Now, at this point, if there's anything else that you'd like to make on your nut crack, go ahead and do that. I'm going to create a backdrop for my Nutcracker. So I'm going to start up here a top, and I'm going to make some curtains because this Nutcracker is going to be performing on stage. So I'm going to start at the very top of my piece of paper, and I'm going to make a curved line down like this, and I'm going to do the same thing on the other side. And then what I'm going to do here isn't going to come in just a little bit like this and come in just a little bit like this. So these are going to be curtains at the top of my nutcracker on the very top. I'm going to make some more curtains, so I'm just kind of making some big use. And then I'm going to add some detail to my curtains. The way that I make detail is I just fill in with a few more lines. So I filled in the top lines and then I feel in these lines, they're not perfectly straight. That's okay. Maybe one more hair. One more here, then I'm going to come down with some curved lines here as well. Here we go. You know, it kind of looks like our Nutcracker is standing or floating in the air, right? So what I'm going to want to dio is I want to put him on a stage. So I'm going to make a line here, jump over his leg like another line, jump over and make another life, and then if I want to make some lines coming down this way, so it looks like he's standing on a wooden stage. I could do that as well. And then, if you'd like to add anything to the back ground right here. You can do that as well. I hope you enjoyed this lesson. I'll see you next time. 9. How to Draw a Church: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. Today we will be creating a church. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to do is we're going to make a cross across at the top of our paper. We're going to start our drawing right at the top. So underneath your cross, let's make an upside down V. And then let's close that up at the bottom inside this triangle that we've made. Let's make some squiggly lines that look like this. This is going to be part of the roof of our church. So these are just some curve lines. They're going all the way down to the bottom. Now we're going to make another line of the bottom, and we're going to close that up with a straight line, a very small straight line. So let's make another line here and another line here coming down. This is going to be the steeple, and we're going to make a diagonal line coming out this way and a diagonal line coming out this way inside this area right here. We're going to make an upside down U and then we're going to make a line here and then another line on the inside. Let's make a straight little line down, and then inside we're going to make a very small bell. So basically, that's an upside down. U closed up at the bottom with a ball at the very bottom going back to these areas. These are going to be this is going to be our roof line civil. Want to make a line here? And another line here closed up with two smaller lines. Now, from here, we're going to come straight down like this, and then we're going to double those lines up. We're going to close thes up at the bottom, and that's going to be the middle part of our church. Let's make some doors. So I like to make curved doors like this. But if you'd like to make them square or rectangular, that's just fine. But if you'd like to make them like this, you make an upside down U and then a smaller upside down you on the inside. And then what we dio is we divide that in half and we make some door knobs. So this is the door where they open Let's make a circle up here for a nice big window inside that circle. Let's make a smaller circle, and then let's make the pains of our window. I think we'll be able to fit somewhere windows over here, So let's make somewhere windows so rectangle. And then it's always nice with the church if it is symmetrical. So we have a window on this side as well. About the same size could make a little line here at the bottom, and then we could make the pains of our window. There we go. Now we can decorate the background so you could make a little a couple of lines going like this diagonal lines, and that could be the pathway that is going up to your church. I like to make some lines going across like this. Some lines coming down almost looks like brick so that what I do to get this effect is I make my straight lines. And then, instead of making more straight lines just coming down this way, I take the time for each line to make some smaller lines inside. And then I offset the next lines on the next set of lines and I make them go a little bit off center of those first lines. I hope that that just made sense. What? I said, There we go. Now let's make some grassy area. Maybe put a flower or two off to the side and you can decorate the background anyway that you like. I think in the back, I'm going to make an area that looks like this. It's going to be kind of a hilly area. Mm. Maybe I'll just have one hell like that. And then I'll make some big, white puffy clouds in the background. There we go. There's our church. I hope you enjoy this lesson. I'll see you next time. 10. How to Draw Christmas Holly: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great D today. Today we will be creating some Christmas holly. So let's get started. The first thing that you want to do is you'll want to make three small circles, so they're Circle number one now. The next circle is going to be going a little bit behind the initial circle, so you're going to make it not complete. And it's going to run right into the first circle and then the third circle, the same thing. It's going to be behind these two circles. These are going to be the Berries on our holy. The next thing that we're going to do is create our holy leaves so that what we're going to do on that is we're going to make ah leaf that looks like this. It comes out from our very with a curved line, another curve line and another curve light, and you notice how the curve lines are starting to go up. Let me show you again. Curve, line, curve line. Now this one's really important because this curve line needs to attach this line to this line just like that. You see how I did that. Now I'm going to create a line right down the middle. I'm going to make another Holly leave right here next to this one, and it might run into this one, so I wanted to be behind this initial one. Okay, so we come out, come down, we come in, come out. And then we make sure that we touch right here, that the last part, and then make a little line. And then her last Holly Leaf is going to go up this way. So we come now. Curved lines. This is not the easiest thing to do. But if you are very, very careful and you practice a lot, you will get it. You see what I did? So I have a curve line, a curve line and a curved line in. And then I came down and I have a curved line. I hit this Holly leave right here, so I wanted to go behind it. So I lifted up my marker, and then I came out where I thought that the leaf would continue. Then I closed it up. All right. You can put as many Holly leaves on your plant as you like. I hope you like this lesson. I'll see you next time 11. How to Draw a Christmas Nativity Scene: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great day today. We're going to be creating a nativity scene. So let's get started. The first thing that we're going to do is we are going to create our structure. So we're going to have a line coming down this way and a line coming down this way. Now we're going to turn this into a roof. So we have a little line here and a little line here, and then we're going to have a dot coming about half a inch, or about a centimeter down from the initial angle right here. We're going to attach this line to this Stott in this line to this Stott. That's going to be the roof. Now we're going to make the sides of our structure. So will come down with a straight line and then we'll double that up and then close at the bottom. Now we're going to come down and come down with some straight lines. Enclose at the bottom. Now underneath, we're going to make to slanted lines into slanted lines. Just like that, if you'd like to add a little bit of detail here, can add some lines and then we're going to make our figures right here. We're going to make Mary and we're going to make Joseph. So what we're going to do is these air going to be very, very simple? We're going to make an upside down J and another upside down J. This one's going to be a little bit smaller. This is going to be married. And now we're going Teoh attached to this ah, curve line that looks like this in a curved line that looks like this. Now we're going to make some faces just the size of the faces, and they're going to be very simple. So you're going to come out, make a small bump for the nose and come down, come out, make a small bump for the nose and come down. And then we're going to make another curved line here. And remember, if you ever come across something, you need to jump over it, not go right through it and then pick up your marker or your pencil and go down the other side. And then on this one hair on Mary's figure, we're going to come down like this. Add just maybe a little bit, whip. See a little bit more detail here. All right, The next thing that we're going to do is we're going to add a little bit of detail appear so let's add a curved line and then just maybe some more curved lines going like this looks like my markers running out. So I'm going to get another one, and then we maybe make some vertical lines going this way. Here we go. All right. The next thing that we're going to do is we're going to make some snow. So we're going to have a line coming over across here and then like this, and maybe even a little bit more right here and then just make some lines. They're not going to be super straight, but this is going to represent snow. Maybe you've been one more right here, so just make your lines going across and make sure that you don't make them super straight because we want them to look like snow in the background. You're going to make somewhere alliance coming out and then going across maybe even a little hill here in the back. If you'd like to make a few trees. Go ahead and do so. But if you don't want to do this part, that's okay. Maybe I'll make another one right here. The way that I like to make these trees these pine trees is I like to just make a triangle and then another triangle right underneath. And don't forget your truck. Now let's make a star. I'm going to make a star up here, and I think what I'm going to do is just make this type of the star. There are different types of stars that you could make, but this is the type that I like for my nativity scene. So you make an upside down V and then you make two lines coming straight out, two lines coming down and then two more bees like this and then coming out from the star, we could make some long lines and make sure that you double those. I feel like this might need some more lines, maybe some shorter lines. I would like to make this really, really vibrant. Here we go. Now we can make even more stars that are smaller and the way that we represent stars that are a little bit smaller or further away. It's just maybe some dots. I couldn't even have that be snow if you like. If you can see the eyes on your figures, you might even want to make some little lines to represent some closed eyes, some praying eyes already. That's it. I hope that you enjoyed this lesson. I'll see you next time. 12. How to Draw a Reindeer: Hey, friends, how are you? I hope you're having a great D today. Today we're going to make a reindeer, so let's get started. The first thing that we're going to do is we're just going to make an oval shape for our reindeers had this is not going to be a complete body of a reindeer, but just his head and maybe a little bit of his shoulders after you make your oval, then we'll make some ears coming out on the sides. And then on the inside of those years, we're going to make some letter sees or upside down use so big upside down, use small upside down use. Now at the top, we're going to put some antlers, and I like to just make some simple antlers like this, so they're really long upside down use and then make one more coming out the side. If you'd like to make your antlers more complex by making them taller or with more coming out from the sites, you can go ahead and do that. Now let's make our reindeers eyes. So I like to make my reindeer eyes white set, meaning that they're not really close to each other on the face. They're not like right here. They're more or apart their wide apart. And then let's make a nose and oval shaped nose with a shine work at the top. That's another oval, and then we feel in the bottom part of our nose. That way the sun reflects off the top of the light. Terrific blacks off the top of this. When we make up line coming straight down, let's put a few dogs right here on the side for a little bit more detail. Now let's put a collar on a reindeer. And the way that I like to make a collar is just make two lines coming down and then one line coming across. And if you'd like to put some bowels when your reindeer you can go ahead and do that and then we'll make some curve lines coming down in, these are going to be his shoulders and then hiss tummy and his arms air down here. It's not going to make this like this. This is for his tummy. All right, so let's make a background for our reindeer. I'm just going to make some snow, so I come along with a line has a little bit of a curve to it. I jump over my reindeer. I don't want to go right through my reindeer, do I? And then I come out the other side. And then I think I'd like to make a sloping hill back here in the background. So I come down. Oh, I hit my reindeer, I come across and then I finish it up over on this side so it looks like the hill continues behind the reindeer. I would like to make a few trees. The way that I like to make trees is they just make a triangle, another triangle right underneath. And then I always remember to put get my trunk in there. You'll put one over here. Please remind me of pine trees. Remember, this is a cartoon. It's not really realistic. Okay, another trunk right here. So he's in the snow up in the mountains. If you will put a few clouds in the sky showing that it's a nice right day. You went over here. You even a small one down here. Well, I think he looks really cute. I'm happy with him. Thank you for watching. I'll see you next time.
