Description: Well folks there is some fun, easy, and cool tutorials on the way and I will start with "<em>how to draw a lantern</em>", strep by step. The lantern style I decided to make is from the Asian culture. The Chinese style lantern that is in this tutorial has the work 'luck' on it written in Chinese. Lanterns are usually used in China to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I had a lot of fun creating a simple, but traditional style lantern that folks can recognize at first glance. If you are into Asian culture you will definitely love drawing a lantern in this style. These lights can be used in so many drawing projects because they are so versatile. Folks also use light bulb style lanterns in their homes on their patios as well as throughout their yards. I myself do not own any of these, or other style lanterns, but I hope to own some in the future. I will return in a while with more drawing fun, but for now enjoy this lesson as you wait for the others. Peace out people!
Description: The next thing you will need to do is draw a circle in the center of the lantern, then write the inscription which reads 'luck'. When that is done you will decorate the lantern with some curved vertical stripes.
