As part of my sometime series on subjects I've frequently illustrated (what have I done thus far? donkeys? apples?), I bring you the next installment: temples. If you're an illustrator for religious curriculum, it's a lock you'll be drawing temples from time to time.
Since I'm not an architect (no, really, I'm not, don't mean to shock), I'm not going to have perfect parallel lines and vanishing points that make complete sense. I don't want to draw that way, and let's face it: I'm not paid to draw that way. I have to figure out a way to make drawing buildings without people, etc. interesting to me, so how do I do this? (My default answer of "volume" will not work here, I'm afeared.) "Swoopy lines" is what I call them. That's what makes drawing interesting to me..
More temples, above, used in a variety of educational ways. Picture #2: Find the hidden (Biblical) carpenter tools; Picture #3: Who are the people in your (Biblical) neighborhood? (oh, hey, look: a donkey!); Picture #4: A dot-to-dot that comes to a fairly obvious conclusion.
Above, some selling going on in the temple. Can you find all the hidden coins?
(Since the only things that seem to be working in my house these days are one knife and a hand-held pencil sharpener, the above was an experiment to see if I could put images from my computer onto a thumb drive, bring them to the library and blog from there. Apparently, I can, but it's a little jump-through-the-hoop-y for my tastes.)
