Hi, I'm Al Krakosky and I'm an artist. Today, I'm going to show you how to draw a bible. A bible is a rectangle. We're going to start off by drawing a straight line across. Just like that. Next we're going to draw a diagonal line going down. Make it as straight as you can. Next we're going to draw a parallel line diagonal again. And then another straight line across, parallel to the top line. But once you get to the end, do not connect. You're going to draw a slight curve down and then across a little further out than this one. We're going to come back over here, come in slightly, and draw a straight line down for your pages. And then another line parallel to this one, going diagonal down. And then coming to a point, and going across here. And we'll follow this line to make the back of the book. And then back up here, slight curve and then another line parallel to the pages. And connect. And we'll color that in a little bit. Add some shading. And that's your basic book shape. Once we have that, we can go in and draw some lines for the pages, a bunch of lines parallel to his. Diagonal lines. And then lines straight across on the bottom. Then on the cover, it would either read bible, holy bible, or has a picture of a cross. And your cross lines, your vertical line is parallel to these two lines, and your horizontal line is parallel to top and bottom line. And that is it, that is how you draw a bible. Thank you for watching, and keep on drawing.
