If you wanted a challenge, this wasn’t the design to select. It’s very, very easy to make, as it’s just a slightly compressed X. For those of you that prefer working against a grid, here’s the pattern to follow: Otherwise, just follow these steps: Prepare a rectangle that’s 4 by 5. This is just short […]

This design, while not very common, is pretty quickly done. Here’s how to do this unique halo: Complete the steps to positioning a halo, including the optional third step. The square drawn in that third step is the outer border of your halo. Lightly draw lines going diagonally inwards from the corners of the outer […]

This tutorial is for drawing a square as it appears as a symbol or part of a larger symbol, not for drawing rectangles or squares themselves. If that’s what you want, then go to the tutorial for drawing rectangles. As a symbol, the square is typically not filled in. So to draw one, you need […]

Drawing a shell can be difficult; the main trick is to try to keep everything proportioned properly. Here’s how to draw a shell with droplets: Begin with a little trapezoid that’s pointing downwards. Now add a larger trapezoid pointing upwards underneath the first one. Ideally it should be almost twice as high and a little […]

This design is simple enough, but get a protractor ready if you’re drawing this one by hand. It will look best if all of the lines are at the same angle from each other. Here’s how to draw a ray halo: Complete the steps to drawing a basic halo. Draw everything lightly enough so that […]

At first glance, this design looks like it should be an easy one. After all, putting four circles together seems straightforward enough. But, as it turns out there’s a catch. If you make the circle’s border too thin or too thick, the design just doesn’t work. Fortunately, I have a few solutions to help you […]

The hardest part about this design is getting the bag of money (ie, the purse) to look like a tied bag. Placing the coins is the easiest part. Here’s the steps to draw the purse: To start, an upside down trapezoid. The wider the trapezoid, the wider the money bag. Draw a line going straight […]

The basin itself is probably one of the easiest things you can draw, so focus on the pitcher. Here’s how to draw this symbol: To begin, draw an upright oval. The thinner the oval, the thinner the pitcher, so try to make it a little over half as wide as it is tall. Draw two […]

This design is pretty straightforward; it’s basically your typical Latin Cross with a little tweaking. The main difference is that the crossbeam is a little farther down. For those of you working off of a grid, this is another easy design to make: For everyone else, here’s how to draw this cross without using a […]

A Passion Cross is a slightly modified version of a Latin Cross, and thus is pretty easy to draw if you’ve been practicing it. The only difference is that the tips are pointed rather than square. Everything becomes even easier if you’re drawing this on a grid, as the grid lines make the measurements extremely […]
