Keep the details simple. Draw the crowns and hats last so you can focus on making good portraits. Draw the eyes curving downward like a bowl or a letter "u" because the wise men are looking down at the baby Jesus. This is about the only thing they have in common, make every face different.
Here are a few ideas.
* Give one face bushy eyebrows, and one no eyebrows at all.
The jar of incense is round, the box of spice is square, and the bag of gold, it is lumpy and round.
Make the robes simple. In my example at the bottom I drew it in a light pencil, afterward I used a fine tipped marker and went over my pencil then erased the pencil. I finished it with watercolor. The copier guy only charges a little extra for color and it makes a nice half fold Christmas card.
