HOW DO I START?
1. Go to your bible and seek out verses that are meaningful and meditate on them, get out your concordance and do a word search on the important words. Let the verses sink deep into your mind and heart and ask the Holy Spirit to bring to mind the things He would like to bring. Then start to write, doodle, draw, color, highlight or underline. (Zebra Eco Zebrite Double Ended Highlighters, fine point are recommended). Gesso is a medium that prepares and protects your pages before the art begins.
2. Sketch your thoughts into pictures and words with a mechanical pencil so you can erase what you don't like. There are fantastic fonts and doodles free on the bible sites that you can make your own or trace out.
3. Outline what you have drawn with a pen. (Pigma Microns and Zigwriter are recommended... .5 for fine lines and 1.2 for the thick lines)
4. Fill your art with color by using gel pens, colored pencil or watercolor pencils. Crayola pencils are alright but Artist Loft Water and Prismacolor Premier give better results).
Don't be afraid to make mistakes, really there are not any mistakes. You can always get another bible and start again.
