Drawing a nice and classic cartoon church is a nice challenge! Over the years, the architectural design of churches has evolved and changed tremendously. Now, some churches are almost not recognizable from the outside.
On top of the church, draw a small cross. Work on the outline of the doors (like shown above) and sketch some handles. You can also add a few lines on the stained glass.
Sketch a shape that looks like a house. This is like a rough outline for your understanding. Once you being drawing from a direction either left, right, top or bottom, you can develop on it as you draw more.
As you progress, check the original Church image if you have one. If you are drawing a Church on your own with your imagination, then it will appear like your imaginative Church. You may use stencils for drawing perfect shapes or just make triangle from the sides of a rectangle.
Create shadow. Try to put some shadow on it and change the color of the outline. You may darken the areas at the joining of two walls. Make the coloring strokes either horizontal or vertical. If you make dark strokes of color which is showing horizontal and vertical patches of color, it may not look very appealing.
Make the colors blend and maintain the coloring strokes in a flow.
While using a charcoal pencil, make sure not to move your palm around it accidentally while coloring the rest of the drawing. As charcoal pencil’s color smudges when rubbed.

Rainbows are found frequently in the bible, and they always have seven colors. Seven is the number of perfection and considered to be God’s number, so be sure to include all seven colors in your rainbows.
Color and outline. You may try dark colors for the roof and light colors for the windows. You may blend different colors too for creating the illusion of depth and dimension. Outline the drawing with a darker sketch pen or charcoal pencil depending upon your choice of colors.
If you are not very proficient with coloring you may use crayons or pencil colors and make very light strokes. As you color, you may play with the light and darker colors. A hint to color well is to assign an area where light falls.
Like sunlight will not be alike on the east and the west. Hence, one side will be dark, another will be lighter.

Use a light colored pencil while drawing. Because while drawing you may have to draw and erase a lot. The erased marks need not be visible after being erased. The smoother the paper remains after you are done drawing, the better the overall drawing will look.
Use lighter colors first if possible. This is because after the light colors, you could add the darker colors. When two colors are overlapped, it mixes. When a light color spreads, it could be hidden with darker colors.
But when the darker colors spread, it may get difficult to erase or cover them. Include stained glass windows if you wish and are drawing a Church you’ve imagined rather than one that exists. Older Churches in the UK often have these and the rich colors used in the glass can contrast beautifully with the dark stone of the Church’s construction.
Add detailing to the Church. Draw a tower on top. Add some windows to the walls. The windows could be well-shaped or ornate like in most Churches. Draw the rectangular door in front. You may make the door conical at the top.
Understand the Church. To make a good Church you must first understand the size of the Church. The Church must fit well on the drawing surface or paper. So justify your desired Church figure as to how far and wide it will stretch so it fits well.
Draw the entrance. For the entrance you may make steps. Make a straight line on your sketch and create box like figures to add a third dimension to the stairs.
Add a few colors and you are done! A solid and classic church drawn in only five minutes (or so)! Another nice challenge would be to draw another church using a 3D perspective! But that would be the topic of another tutorial! Have fun!
Understand the dimension of the Church. The Church will not be visible from all four sides on a sheet of paper. Understand which sides of the Church will be displaying in your drawing. This sets the view or the perspective of the drawing.
The front view will look larger and the back side of the Church will look narrow. This narrowness shows that the Church is small or big. The more narrow it gets from front to back, the bigger the Church appears.
Draw the lines keeping the Church’s walls in mind. The lines of the walls will start straight and end in a slope depending upon your design in mind.
Not more bell towers or cross to contemplate. But don’t worry! In this tutorial, you will learn to draw a nice church with all features needed to make it recognizable and admire by everyone!
Next, let’s draw the bell tower. Draw a long and thin rectangle to do so. Then, sketch a small triangle on top to create the roof of your tower.
