How To Draw A Cristal

PART 1: Drawing a Crystal From Scratch
If you’ve always wanted to try to draw a crystal but haven’t known where to start, you’ve come to the right place. Drawing a crystal isn’t as daunting as it seems. With just a few simple tools, anyone can create a beautiful, unique crystal that’s made with their own hands.
First and foremost, you’ll need to have a strong idea of the shape you’d like your crystal to be. Whether it’s a hexagonal prism, an octahedron, or a dodecahedron, having a mental image of your end goal will help you in the creative process. Beyond that, all you need is some paper, pencils, and a ruler.
To begin, sketch out the lines for the shape of your crystal on the paper with your pencil. Don’t worry about making mistakes; you can always erase and start fresh. Once the physical shape is sketched out, break the crystal into small, manageable pieces. You’ll eventually be adding detail to each of these pieces, so take care to make sure they don’t get too small.
To make the edges of each piece look realistic, begin to lightly draw hexagonal or other shapes on one of the faces of the crystal. Again, don’t worry if you get it wrong — a few mistakes here won’t ruin your work. Finally, start to shade and add depth to the crystals edges with a darker pencil or even colored pencils.
PART 2: Adding Color and Texture to Your Crystal
Now that you’ve finished sketching your crystal and given it some definition, it’s time to start adding color and texture. Depending on the color, shade, and finish you’d like for your crystal, you can either use paint, markers, colored pencils, or even go for a more metallic or glittery finish with oil pastels or glitter pens.
To make sure that the paint or other medium is evenly distributed, move your paper around while adding your texture. This will help the texture to look uniform and not too cluttered. Once the texture is complete, use colored pencils or paint markers to shade the edges of the crystal and make it look more realistic.
PART 3: Finishing Touches and Details
Now that you’ve created the basic structure of your crystal and added some color and texture, it’s time to add the finishing touches. Begin by giving your crystal a light wash of white paint over the entire piece — this will make the colors stand out more. You can also add dots of lighter or darker hues, as well as sparkles, to further bring your crystal to life.
If you’d like to add additional details, use smaller brushes to draw thin outlines along the edges of the crystal. This will make your crystal not only look more realistic but will also help to bring definition to the face of the crystal.
PART 4: Final Steps and Display
Once you’re happy with the way your crystal looks, it’s time to begin the final steps. Begin by spraying a layer of clear sealant over your crystal to make sure the colors won’t fade. If you’d like, you can also lightly spray some metallic or glittery sealant to add a reflective finish.
Finally, affix the crystal to a flat surface and display it proudly in your home or office. By following the above steps, you can create a beautiful, one-of-a-kind crystal. All it takes is a bit of creativity, patience, and attention to detail — these steps along with your imagination are sure to create a beautiful, unique piece of art.
