Hi everybody, and welcome to a new tutorial. NIL-Tech has prepared a new awesome Drawing Tutorial for you: "Sukkot tent for the Festival of Shelters". The Jewish holiday of Sukkot occurred from a Canaanite agricultural festival, developing throughout the years into the holiday we know today, tabernacles, and all. However, few traditions of this holiday, such as sleeping under the stars for a whole week, may appear strange to the observer.
So here are 5 things you need to know about Sukkot:
1. Sukkot is known by numerous names: the Festival of Booths, the Season of Our Rejoicing, and the Festival of the Ingathering
2. The ritual for the lulav and etrog include reciting true blessings over them and waving them in 6 directions - north, south, east, west, up, and down - signifying that God can be discovered in all directions, not just in one particular location.
3. Sukkot likewise has roots as an agricultural celebration, providing a chance to give thanks for the bounty of the fall harvest. It is one of the three yearly expedition festivals (along with Passover and Shavuot), when Israelites took a trip to Jerusalem to use sacrifices at the ancient Temple.
4. Sukkot is a time for (public) reading. On the 2nd day of Sukkot, everyone (females and kids are particularly mentioned) were to attend a public reading of the Law ("The Torah") by the king in the Temple of Jerusalem. This custom was sadly terminated in the year 70 with the damage of the Second Temple by Romans, who might have been deeply religious in their own method but were definitely goyim.
5. The 4 species. One of the very best understood signs of Sukkot is the 4 species - the citron (etrog), the closed frond of a palm tree (lulav), boughs of myrtle (hadas) and branches of willow (aravah). They are ceremoniously shaken throughout the holiday.

Step 1. Draw the contours of the tent (pencil 5H).
Step 2. Draw the elements of the tent (pencil 5H).
Step 3. We draw the folds at the entrance, the ropes, and the pegs, the spire, and the table inside the tent (pencil 2B).
Step 4. Draw the contours of the menorah (pencil HB), the contours of the trees (trees on the left with pencil 2B, trees on the right with pencil 2H).
Step 5. Draw the star of David on the spire (pencil 6B) and the radiance around it (pencil H) on the spire. Draw the contours of palm leaves (pencil 3B), the lights above the menorah (pencil 3B), and the fruits on the table (mechanical pencil).
Step 6. Draw the chairs near the table (pencil 4B), the remaining dishes on the table, and a jug (mechanical pencil) and the trunks of palm trees (pencil 2B).
Step 7. Erase the excess lines and scuffs around the picture (eraser).
Step 8. Paint all the elements of the picture (colored pencils) with primary colors.
Step 9. Darken the folds at the entrance to the tent with darker tones, the inner space of the tent, draw red lights inside the light above the menorah (colored pencils).
