I have been getting into drawing tribal art again lately and because of this I was tempted to make a design that I have never done before. After raking my brain for an awesome idea, I finally came up with "how to draw a tribal angel", step by step. How awesome is it going to be making an angel in tribal form? Now because I know angels are supposed to be beautiful and intriguing, I wanted to come up with a design that is totally cool and very doable for a real inking job. I chose to go with a back view of an angel because that way, you are getting some awesome tribal wings inked as well as the figure or silhouette of an angel’s body. The subtle lining and contours of the body’s curves make a simple concept into a complex figure. I really hope you enjoy this tutorial on drawing a tribal angel because it took me a while to figure out how I was going to pull this idea off. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment, or you can fav and rate. I will be back once again so stay tuned in you wonderful people or the artistic community.
