How to Draw a Graveyard

A cemetery or graveyard is a place set aside for burying the remains of the deceased. Cemeteries reflect the religious beliefs of the area and are often considered "holy ground." In some countries, such as Mexico and Japan, festivals in honor of the dead are celebrated in graveyards.

Since ancient times, graveyards were often avoided for sanitary reasons. The ancient Jews and Romans, for example, required that graveyards be located outside of cities. Later, graves were common in churchyards or "family plots" near homes.

Superstition added to the avoidance of graveyards. People feared that the dead or their spirits could rise from their graves to harm the living. These beliefs have especially centered around holidays such as Halloween and its predecessors.

How to Draw Charlie Brown

"In the book of life, the answers aren't in the back."

Charlie Brown is a classic character of American comic strips. He was written to be a "lovable loser," a caricature of the average person or Everyman. Throughout the stories, he ranges in age from four to eight years old.

Charlie Brown coaches a losing baseball team and pines for the "little red-haired girl" to whom he never musters the courage to speak. He is supported by a cast of friends including Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Lucy, and Linus. He has a beagle named Snoopy and a small yellow bird called Woodstock.

How to Draw Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo means "fifth of May" in the Spanish language. Not surprisingly, then, the holiday is celebrated on May 5 each year. What is this holiday about?

Cinco de Mayo was originally celebrated in parts of Mexico and the United States as the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla. This battle resulted in a victory over the French army in 1862. The battle became a symbol of Mexico's determination to resist domination by foreign countries.

Today, many immigrants from Mexico celebrate the holiday as a way of "encouraging pride in their Mexican heritage." Many Americans, food companies, and restaurant chains have adopted the holiday as an occasion to party.

In this drawing guide, we feature the sombrero and maracas, two items iconic of Mexican culture. The sombrero is a wide brimmed hat made of felt or straw. Its name is derived from a word meaning "shade." Sombreros worn on special occasions are often decorated with bright colors and sparkling beads.

Maracas are musical rattles made from gourds filled with seeds, beans, beads, or small stones. The rhythm of the maracas is essential to several musical styles of South and Central America.

Are you ready to fiesta, or party? Doing so is easy when you use our simple, step-by-step drawing tutorial to help you craft your sombrero and a pair of maracas. All you will need is a pencil, an eraser, a sheet of paper, and something with which to color.

How to Draw a Coffin

What is a coffin? A coffin is a box or container in which the body of a deceased person is placed for burial or cremation. Coffins are also used to display the body at many funerals.

Is there a difference between a coffin and a casket? The word casket originally meant a box for keeping jewelry or other treasures. It became an Americanism used to refer to rectangular coffins.

Hexagonal coffins like the one in this drawing guide are still used throughout the world.

Coffins have varied much over the centuries and from place to place. Ancient Egyptian royalty were mummified and placed in coffins called sarcophagi. These were often covered in gold and bore a sculpture of the inhabitant.

Some cultures wrapped their dead in baskets, cloth, or flowers; there are even reports of Native American peoples being buried in large turtle shells. Others used wooden or stone coffins similar to those still in use today.

In popular culture, coffins often make appearances as harbingers of the undead, such as zombies or vampires.

Other uses include museum recreations of the funerals of famous people, such as Abraham Lincoln at the National Museum of Funeral History in Houston, Texas, U.S.A.

How to Draw an Alien

Aliens are frequent denizens of science fiction, from Star Trek to Star Wars to Disney's Toy Story, and the search for extraterrestrial life is carried out by some serious scientists. This, however, has not always been the case.

​Aliens are often linked with sightings of UFOs, or unidentified flying objects. These sightings generally did not occur prior to man's experimentation with flight. One of the first UFO sightings occurred in 1947, when a businessman reported seeing several crescent shaped objects flying alongside his small airplane. A local newspaper mistakenly reported that they were saucer shaped, thus the term, "flying saucer."

​UFO sightings increased with time; during the 1950s and 1960s, the U.S. government recorded more than 12,000 such sightings. Most were eventually discovered to be astronomical phenomena or aircraft, with only six percent remaining unidentified.

​​​During this time period, supposed aliens began to be referred to as "little green men." This description had long been used to describe mythical creatures such as goblins and gremlins, the latter of which were said to reek havoc on airplanes and other mechanical devices.

​Would you like to draw your own little green men? This easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial is here to help. All you will need is a pencil, a sheet of paper, and an eraser. You may also wish to use crayons, colored pencils, or some other implement to shade your finished alien.​​​​

How to Draw a Fallen Angel

"And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day."
- Jude 6, King James Version

Angels are defined as "any benevolent...spiritual being that mediates between the transcendent and temporal realms." Throughout history, various cultures have recorded such beings in their art, often endowing them with wings. Ancient examples can be seen in the Assyrian relief panel and other works displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Today, popular culture often glorifies fallen angels. Books and movies portray them as romantic figures. Interestingly, both ancient mythologies and the Bible did the same - though typically in an unfavorable light. In Greek mythology, for example, gods such as Zeus fathered half-human children.

In the Bible book of Genesis, it states that "the sons of God came unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them." It was this event that caused the "great flood" to occur.

Did you know? The term "angel" means "messenger." While modern artistic renderings of angels depict them as female, this has not always been the case. In the holy writings of Christianity and Judaism, materialized angels are always seen as males. The idea of female angels, such as the one in this drawing guide, may have been adopted from mythological goddesses worshiped throughout the world.

Would you like to draw a fallen angel? This easy, step-by-step cartoon drawing tutorial will show you how. All you will need is a pencil, a sheet of paper, and an eraser.

How to Draw Naruto

Naruto Uzumaki is a young Ninja who wishes to rise to glory and eventually become the leader of his village, despite the challenges presented by situations beyond his control.

His story first appeared in the Japanese manga Karakuri in 1995. The story continued in an additional manga volume and the serial Weekly Shonen Jump.

In 2002, Naruto became a television anime series. A second series, eleven films, and a number of spin-offs have been created from the original story line.

The Naruto series has a universal appeal due in part to the fact that it is a coming-of-age story. The characters not only grow physically from pre-teens to young adults, but evolve and mature in the process.

According to the University of Missouri's Christopher A. Born, "the Naruto storyline contains Confucian values which can be identified and embraced by preteen and adolescent boys...[including] hard work, friendship, and winning at all costs."

Would you like to be able to draw Naruto? Doing so is easy with this simple step-by-step drawing tutorial.

All you will need is a pencil, a piece of paper, and an eraser. You may also wish to use paints, markers, crayons, or colored pencils to shade your finished drawing.

How to Draw a Knife

A knife is a tool or implement used for cutting. Knives are also known as cutlery.

Knives have a long history. Ancient stone, bronze, and iron knives have been discovered at archeological sites. Historically and today, there are many different types of knives. Some have been used for weapons, others for preparing food.

Did you know? During the 1600s, only wealthy families had enough table knives to offer an implement to each guest at a meal. Instead, the common people carried their own personal eating knives. Men wore theirs on a belt or next to their sword, and women kept theirs tied to a girdle.

How to Draw a Pocket Watch

"I'm late! I'm late, for a very important date! No time to say 'hello,' goodbye! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!"
-The White Rabbit, Disney's Alice in Wonderland (1951)

​Did you know that watches have been around for more than 500 years? The first was designed by a lock maker around the year 1500. For the first time in history, people were able to tell the time of day by a means other than looking at the position of the sun. These early watches did not use batteries - they had to be wound daily, using a small metal knob to tighten a spring within the watch.

​​Wrist watches are popular today, but the first watches were either carried in hand or suspended on a chain. The chain could be worn like a necklace or pinned to the garment, with the watch tucked into a nearby pocket - thus, the title of pocket watch. Pocket watches were the most popular type of watch from the time of their invention until shortly after World War II.

​​In popular culture, pocket watches have come to symbolize times past; movies often depict Victorian gentlemen, politicians, early American railway conductors, and well to do men in the American West or gold rush Alaska as carrying pocket watches. The White Rabbit in Disney's 1951 cartoon Alice in Wonderland carried such a watch - but he was still unable to make it on time.

​Steam punk art and jewelry - which depicts a Victorian alternate reality in which mechanical steam power rather than electricity and digital devices became the dominant technology - often use pocket watches and their gears, or internal workings. A painting by surrealist artist Salvador Dali, entitled The Persistence of Memory, depicts a number of pocket watches melting upon a bleak background.

Would you like to draw a pocket watch? Doing so is simple with the help of this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial. All you will need is a sheet of paper and a pencil, pen, or marker. You may also wish to use crayons, colored pencils, or something similar to shade your finished drawing.

How to Draw Peter Pan

"All you need is faith, trust, and a little bit of pixie dust."
- Peter Pan

Peter Pan was first introduced in the novel The Little White Bird in 1902. The play Peter Pan; or, the Boy Who Would Not Grow Up, written by Scottish playwright J. M. Barrie, hit the world stage in 1904. Peter Pan soon became a part of modern mythology.

In 1953, Disney's Peter Pan became the most memorable adaptation of the story. Peter Lives in Neverland. He has the ability to fly and never grows older. He leads a troupe known as the Lost boys and frequently encounters pirates, fairies, mermaids, and Native Americans.

Peter Pan embodies both the good and the bad of childhood. He is a symbol of youthful innocence and carefree days, as well as selfishness, boastfulness, forgetfulness, and self-centeredness. Did you know? Peter's character is based, at least in part, on the ancient Greek deity Pan.

How to Draw DNA

DNA stands for "deoxyribonucleic acid." DNA is a chemical compound found within the nucleus of the cells of all living things. DNA is responsible for trait inheritance - the color of your eyes, the pattern on a kitten's coat, or the height of a mighty tree.

The shape of DNA is called a double helix. Two DNA molecules are wrapped around one another in a shape resembling a spiral staircase or a twisted ladder. The sides of the ladder are made up of sugars and phosphate molecules. The "rungs" of the ladder contain information. The four nucleotides - the "rungs," called adenine, guanine, thymine, and cytosine - form patterns. This can be compared to the pattern of numbers that are used to represent information on a CD or DVD.

Did you know? Each of your cells contains six feet of DNA. That means that all the DNA in your body, if stretched end-to-end, could reach to the sun and back about 600 times. Scientists have also discovered that humans share about 99.9 percent of DNA. It is just 0.1 percent of our DNA that makes us unique. People are more similar to one another than they are different.

DNA has also appeared in popular culture. An explanation of DNA was important to the plot of the blockbuster film Jurassic Park (1993). Drawings of DNA are common in textbooks, in science fiction films or series, and even on clothing and other items.

Would you like to draw a strand of DNA? This easy, step-by-step scientific drawing tutorial is here to show you how. All you will need is a pencil, an eraser, and a sheet of paper. You may also wish to use crayons, markers, colored pencils, or paints to color your finished model.

How to Draw a Dagger

A dagger can be described as either a short sword or a long knife. The dagger was used as a weapon in close combat. Highly decorated daggers often served ritual or ceremonial purposes. Some were even used for dining. Ancient daggers were made of bone or stone; later, they were made of metal.

The dagger was often selected for battle or dueling because of its convenient size. A dagger could be hidden beneath one's clothing and drawn quickly from its scabbard. This gave rise to the term "cloak and dagger," meaning "an activity...that involves espionage, mystery or secrecy."

The dagger has taken on different symbolisms in different cultures. In Western culture, it is often associated with assassination and murder. One example is the murder of Julius Caesar by his companion Brutus, both historically and as part of a Shakespearean play. In other cultures, daggers are a symbol of attaining manhood. Some military divisions use a dagger in their insignia.
