How to draw fairies – This is the tutorial you were looking for to realize a perfect drawing of a Fairy.
A fairy is a type of mythological being or legendary creature, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural or preternatural.
How to draw fairies – Let’s get started!
We’ll draw not one but two Fairies in this tutorial so you get twice the effect with the same effort. Let’s get prepared for the ride.
We are going to draw two fairies interacting with each other. As these little creatures are supposed to have a human body we’ll sketch them as if we were drawing human female characters with slightly different features.
Sketch a large circle for the head, a thin neck, and a couple of elongated circles for the torso and hip region.
How to draw fairies – sketching the bodies
As if you were drawing ant legs sketch the arms and legs of the fairies with long sticks. The hands are small balls and the feet are small triangles.
Fairies wouldn’t be such if they had no wings so go on and draw big insect-like wings. Two pairs for each one. Then use a black pencil to start defining the real shape of the bodies over the sketch.
Fairies resemble various beings of other mythologies, though even folklore that uses the term fairy offers many definitions. Sometimes the term describes any magical creature, including goblins or gnomes: at other times, the term only describes a specific type of more ethereal creature.
How to draw fairies – defining the bodies
Using the sketched lines as a guide start to add a bit of flesh to it defining better the shapes of arms and legs.
Also, add long hair with many curling wisps!
These two are looking more and more like real fairies! Start reducing the number of construction lines and define what is in front of what. For example, the wings of the fairy on the right are partially covered by the fairy itself, and those of the fairy on the left are partially covered by her hairs.
How to draw fairies – looking good!
Remove all of the construction lines and unveil the beauty of the fairies. Now it’s time to add the final touches and details!
Fairies are two beauties so draw angelic faces for them and long pointy ears. Tight corsets around their elongated bodies and short skirts. Also, put two beautiful flowers in their hands.
Fairies are generally described as human in appearance and having magical powers. Their origins are less clear in the folklore, being variously dead, or some form of demon, or a species completely independent of humans or angels.
How to draw fairies – Let’s finish it
Time to add all those small details to finish the drawing.
Divide the long hairs in smaller wisps and add a texture or pattern to the small dresses. Be sure to remove the lines that are not supposed to be seen and voila! You two beautiful Fairies are ready!
Darken the lines to define your drawing better and add as many details as you wish like more flowers in their hairs or a more complex texture or pattern on their dresses.
Congratulations you have finished your drawing of a couple of Beautiful Fairies!
