Step 2: Internet

look these things up on the internet to find pictures of them to imitate...
do your best and draw big. simplify complex images with outlines of them or just put your paper on your monitor and trace them (lightly!).
put them on the paper and connect them!

Step 4: The once over...

look at your drawing....
color in areas. make sure that there are no gaping holes. color in areas that look wierd. having sark and light areas will make the picture interesting.
By the end you should have very little clues that you wrote your ideas on the page.
the patterns will make the picture interesting and people will really be interested in your art!

Step 5: Voila!

I appreciate the instructable, although, I am a little disappointed to see this done so easily. I think I've lost my romance with art.
Art is an expression from the heart, it can be complicated or easy, it's what you make it. If this was too easy for you try making a challenge for yourself to make it more difficult and I promise ot will be rewarding. the fact that this is so easy for you just means your mind wants more! feed your imagination and let the emotions flow through your chosen artistic tools. Like I said the only reason you were disappointed in the ease of this project is because you obviously desire your art to be a challenge... SO use that to create AWESOME things. :) good luck and happy tinkering.

That's why I love art so much. Because it can take years to finish or seconds. Just depends on how you look at it, and as 'they' say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Here's a tip for Y'all artists! When searching for pictures of your drawings, search the name first, then search the name + "clip art" behind it. Also, remove any pluralization (remove the s). Therefore you can look for already-simplified images! Example: Searching for "oranges" First search: "oranges" --- returned very detailed images... Second search: "orange clip art" -- returned very fine samples of modern art.
Maybe you could add this to this Instructable... just so everyone could see this tip.

I liked this Instuctable very much, it opened my mind in some sort of way. I decided to do it on a smaller piece of paper, becuse i didnt had any thick markers. I made it in about 2 hours, but i was really enojoing it.

Hey, I like that Holy Bible that you drew. And I am happy that it interests you. Those are beautiful colors and you have a very creative imagination. I think your's looks better that anybody else's here! Nice job God bless you
RazorEnzo and Volquete, thank you so much :)
awesome!!!!!!!!!
This looks great!
The colour definitely works with this kind of art work. Beautiful job. Great idea for the artist with limited drawing skills. I'll give this one a go soon.
Thank you! I had lots of fun with this. I used a combination of Prismacolor colored pencils and some oil pastels.
