It's not too often that I get requests on angels but when I do I like to make sure I get them done because I am a big fan of angel art. Having said that, here is a tutorial based on a request and it's "how to draw a weeping angel", step by step. The stone style angel design is done to make it seem more realistic and emotional. I like the gothic style angels or the ones made from stone because they are more detailed and have a lot of history behind their formation. I just didn't want to make another anime, or cartoon type of angel so I went ahead and filled the request full force. I know all of you angel art fans will love drawing this weeping angel. I have to go because I want to get some other cool lessons uploaded so be sure to stay tuned in to see what they are. Adios amigos.

STEP 3.

Now that the face shape and hair line is drawn in, we can begin sketching the angel's face. Start with the thin eyebrows, then draw the closed eyes which means all you have to draw is the thick lid lashes. Add the creases on the lids, then sketch out the nose and mouth. The angel's head is tilted downward.
