Lion of Judah

My picture of this lion I drew reminds me of one of Gods name (LION OF JUDAH).  It represents him as a king, strong leader, powerful and majestic.  I tried to demonstrate this by drawing this lion.  One of my most favorite things to draw is animals so this went perfect.  Recently I have tried to draw pictures about God and Jesus.  I also try to draw very historic pictures.

This lion has some very distinct patterns in his face.  He is laying on a rock and looking faraway to a moving object on a mountain.  His hair was one of the hardest parts to draw but I eventually got it right.

Horizon Sunset

This is a picture I drew when I was eight.  This picture I drew in art class.  As you can see it is a picture of a cross on a hill.  I like this picture a lot because it makes me think of Jesus dying on the cross.  This is one of my favorite drawings I did when I was young.

 For the sun’s rays, I used a kneaded eraser to get the right effect.  The sun shining greatly affected the picture and made it look realistic.  Today I still use that method to create my sun rays.  I am glad that I went to that art class.

St. Basil’s Cathedral

One of my most favorite drawings is one I did three months ago.  It is a drawing of St. Basil’s Cathedral.  St. Basil’s Cathedral is located in Moscow Russia.  Ivan the Terrible ordered this cathedral to be built; they started the project in 1555 and finished six years later in 1561.  I thought this would be a very interesting and beautiful drawing so I started drawing it; and now I am glad I did.  Below is the picture of St. Basil’s Cathedral:

Below is the picture I have drawn:

Drawn Picture

For this picture I used a variety of tools.  The pencils I used are 2H, HB, 3B and 6B.  I also used a kneadable eraser and a regular eraser.  For the blending and softening I used a small, medium and large blending tool.  For this picture I used the graph method so I could pick up all of the close, small details.  This cathedral is one of the prettiest I have ever seen.
