STEP 1. Okay as you can see this is a very easy drawing lesson to learn from. You will first start by drawing two guidelines for the frame of the Celtic cross. After you do that you can then draw out the outline of the cross itself as shown above. If you notice the edges of the corners are snipped or slanted outward and the middle of the flat sides have a dip. Make sure you add these attributes to the crosses shape.   STEP 2. Now since this cross has a rope style design you will start sketching out the lining for the roping. But before you do that you should draw a thin line around the inner rim of the cross as shown. Once you have done that you can then start adding the rope detailing. You will then add an egg shape circle in the middle of the Celtic cross before you go.   STEP 3. Okay you have reached step three and I know you know what that means right? Yes, you are half way done. You will approach the remaining steps by adding more rope lining detailing to the crosses design. ALl you have to do is follow the step and draw all the red lines you see here until your sketch looks similar to the image in step three.   STEP 4. Okay you have reached step four and you have done great so far. As you can see by the time you finished this step you will be practically done. All you need to do is draw the rounded edges to the rope design you sketched out so far. After you do that you can go ahead and start erasing some of the guidelines you drew ion step one.   STEP 5. Yay! You have finally reached the last step and I am so relieved, are you? So what you will do is finish the detailing in the middle of the cross as you see here. Once you are done you can finish cleaning up your art by erasing any left over guidelines.   STEP 6. Well that's it your done. You can add some color if you want but you can also leave it as is. You have successfully finished this tutorial on how to draw a Celtic cross step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
