When drawing celtic crosses, you'll want to start by drawing a circle inside of a circle while connecting the cross to the base. Get started drawing celtic crosses with help from an experienced illustrator in this free video on drawing objects.
Hi, I'm Michael Weisner. I'm an Animator, 2D Illustrator and a Graphic Designer and today I'm going to show you how to draw a Celtic cross. Let's get started. First you are going to need paper and a writing utensil. Now I've already drawn today's image using a pencil to save time. I'm going to follow the same step by inking it today, so let's get started. Now whenever you get started on drawing a Celtic cross you want to start with a nice circle and you want to put another circle inside of it and with that you want to start drawing a cross at the very, connecting to the base of it. So we're going to start drawing like a triangle or a connected end to it, but then we're also going to add a square. So, let's call them little houses, and on the right we're going to add another one. On the left, let's give it another one, and at the bottom we want to give it a nice long one, almost like a tower. So, start at the base of the circle. Those are the angle lines and you start going down long, down long and then you connect them. Now that we are looking at this, it feels like it's missing something. So, let's add another circle. Once you are finished with that, let's add details as well which we are going to add Celtic rooms and all sorts of fun things to it. We're going to give it some space, give it more detail. At the very center I'm going to go with some very simple designs and you work on the right angle side, so get some more detail. There we go. Let's work on the top, a circle, another one and now finally we are on the left so let's add a tiny box inside. Now the center looks pretty plain so I'm going to add a mini-cross inside. And that's how you draw a Celtic cross. Hope you enjoyed. I'll see you next time.
