Well guys, I decided that I was going to continue to draw in my new drawing style. After the two lessons I uploaded yesterday, I have another tutorial that will raise some eyebrows and add smiles to faces on those that love fantasy style drawings and lessons. For my third lesson I will show you "how to draw a fantasy fairy", step by step. Out of the new female figures that I have drawn thus far, she is definitely my all-time favorite. I have a feeling that the more I draw in this manner, the better I will become, and the more in love I will be with my figures. Some of my favorite aspects for this fairy are her hair, the flowers in her hair, the way her legs are posed which keeps an innocent look as well as look sexy at the same time, and her wings. The new ways I draw eyes and facial features is another exciting accomplishment that I admire with the characters that I have been creating. If you join me live tonight you will be watching me draw a mermaid in this same drawing style. The fantasy style background also makes this fairy look amazing, and I love how her hair falls and relaxes on the ground. Of course you can tweak your fairy to look like anything you wish, you can even changer her hairstyle, wings, and face if you like. On another note, I have to break out of here for now, but I will return because I have a lot more drawing fun coming your way for you all. Adios I amigos, and enjoy!

How to Draw a Fantasy Fairy, Fantasy Fairy Girl

how to draw a fantasy fairy, fantasy fairy girl step 1

STEP 1.

Okay guys, as you know you will be drawing another fairy character. This time she will be from the side. Start by drawing the framing and guide shapes which will help you complete this lesson better. Begin with a head shape, and then draw a neck guide. You will attach the neck line to her torso shape like so, and then draw the body lining with a foot shape at the end.

STEP 2.

Instead of making this tutorial with the body and face combined when tackling the task of drawing the fairy's face, I thought I would make it where you can focus just on her face to make things a whole lot easier to understand. Begin on the left side and start sketching out the face structure which then turns into her cheek and chin. Next, draw the thick and or bold shapes of her eyes, and sketch in some lashes to her left eye. When that is done you can draw her nose, and mouth or lips like so, and lastly draw the eyebrows, pupils, and the rest of her lashes.

STEP 3.

Now that her face is drawn in, we can begin sketching out her arms and hands. Notice how her left arm is crossed over as her hand rests on her right shoulder. The right arm is going to be wrapped around her legs once you draw her legs in the next step.

STEP 4.

Okay guys, here is a simple way to draw her hands. Start with the top lining of her hand, and then draw the finger guides. When that is done you can then sketch out the actual fingers and then her long nails. Also sketch in some knuckle detailing too.

STEP 5.

Okay guys, draw the thigh right where it creases or folds at her hips. Continue to sketch out her leg as well as her foot. Don't forget to sketch in the toes as well.

STEP 6.

Next, sketch the the fairy's back line, and then draw the bum or butt. The very same lining should form the back of her thigh. Next, draw in her left leg and foot like so, as well as add some contouring to the bottom of her foot.

STEP 7.

This is a very simple step because all you have to do is sketch in some definition on her torso under the breast, and along her waist.

STEP 8.

You will now draw out her hair and as you can see she has long lustrous locks. I chose to go with a straight style, but you can make curly, short, or wavy. Once the outline of her hair style is sketched in, the hair strands should be drawn in a downward pattern. Make sure to draw some loose curls as well.

STEP 9.

Here you will begin adding hair texture. This can easily be done just by adding some hair strand lines in a downward motion. When her hair is all defined, you can draw the lilies in her hair, or the flower of your choice.

Finally, you have reached the last drawing step. All you have to do now is draw in her fairy wings. Of course you can choose to draw any style wings you want, but I thought that a simple patterned wing would suit her best. Add the patterns on the wings, and then start erasing your mistakes.

Here is your fantasy fairy girl when you are all done. Have fun coloring her in, and when you are finished with the coloring process, make sure to show others your new sketch, and then submit your finished drawing to Dragoart.
