Fairy Drawing - Step By Step Guide With Pictures

How to Draw a Fairy - Step by Step

Drawing a fairy is mostly easy with this template, and what starts simple ends with a professional result thanks to the step-by-step instructions. However, you will need some patience and a good concentration, because the picture surprises with numerous refined details.

For this drawing we recommend a pencil (e.g. HB or H2), an eraser, an eraser-proof drawing pencil and, if necessary, colors according to your personal taste.

Fairy drawing - Step by Step

Step 1: Head and torso

First, take the pencil at hand. We start very simply with a slightly oval circle for the head. Underneath, you place a triangle that tapers towards the bottom. A line runs from the lower tip to the chin.

Step 2: Skirt and hair

With a sweeping hand movement you draw a curved line from the top of the head diagonally downwards and thus indicate the course of the hair. At the lower tip of the triangle, place the bell-shaped skirt, which may swing slightly to the right.

Step 3: Limbs

Your fairy takes shape! Draw arms and legs in stick figure style. Mark the shoulders, elbows, hands and knees with circles. You also draw pointed shoes and frame the hands with two strokes each. The important thing is the fairy-typical arm and leg posture. It should look as if the fairy is flying. The template shows you how to do this.

Step 4: Permanent contours

The pencil is now exchanged for the drawing pencil. You give the fairy a face and give the head contours. This includes the eye of the fairy shown on the side, as well as the ear and the hairline on the forehead. You draw the neckline in the upper body triangle and frame the arm lines so that the fairy gets natural features. Also, the skirt gets a nice leafy texture. If you like, you can use a dark fiber or ink painter to draw these details, which will remain later when you erase the preliminary sketches.

Step 5: Finishing the legs

Now give the legs a natural look. Use the pencil to draw the final thighs and calves. Also, start sketching the wings.

Step 6: Wings

Now draw all the lines that are to be visible later with a dark eraser-proof pencil. Alternatively, you can also use a soft pencil. However, you will have to be careful not to smudge the pencil when you color it in later. It is also not so easy to erase the guide lines.

Step 7: Removing the guides and other finishing touches

You remove the guides with the eraser and draw more details. For example, you add a decorative border to the wing and frame the hand with a wreath of stars.
