I always have fun trying out new drawing and coloring styles, and because of this you guys will benefit from my hard work because I will show you some really cool tutorials that will definitely have people talking. With this lesson I will show you "how to draw an angel cross", step by step. This is a tattoo design that I have always wanted to tackle but I never got around to it because of all the work that I have been doing lately. The angel idea was actually conjured up by someone that wanted a tattoo of a cross, but he also wanted the cross to resemble an angel. After struggling with the concept I finally came up with something that was not only very cool, but very beautiful as well. This is a great tattoo design of an angel that is posing in a cross like style. Her arms and legs are almost the same position as a crucifix, and her face is void because of the fact that she is in this pose. I love how the wings and body sketch came out and I look forward to drawing like this real soon. The only problem I'm running into is concept ideas. I want to better my skills with drawing hands and feet in a comic book form instead of always drawing my figures in an anime form or style. The only way to get better is to actively practice everyday, so that is what I'll do. With each design or creation I will submit them as tutorials so you guys can learn with me. For now have fun drawing an angel cross, and remember to comment and rate to let me know what you think of the new drawing style. Peace out and enjoy!

It was probably the highlight of the whole lesson for me. Add some detailing to her hair which is nothing more than strand lines. Draw another long curl, and then move to step four.

STEP 4.

As you continue to draw her upper body, you will also continue to draw more of her hair. This angel has hair that never ends. This is mainly because I am using her hair to cover her upper body. Add detailing to her locks and then draw in the shapes of her breasts and pelvic area.
