|How To Draw The Three Wise Men Worksheet|
Start by drawing lightly at first so you can change things and erase later.
Make each head a different shape, one can be oval, one egg shaped and one can be an upside down teardrop shape. Have the one in the middle taller than the other two. Use a guide line up and down the center of each head so things can be kept even. Use another guide line across the center so the eyes will not be too high or low. Lightly draw these guidelines since you will want to erase them later.
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.
