There is so many characters and objects that people associate Christmas with, and if you look in the “Seasonal” category under the “Christmas” section, you will see all different types of objects, and people that represent this special holiday. I will show you “how to draw a angel step by step”. I do have a Christmas angel already and if you look at the tutorial, you will see how adorable she is. I wanted to do another angel that looks like Christmas, because I know that there are artists that want to draw unique looking angels around this time of year. She is dressed in red and green, and her cheeks are rosy red. The angel's face is drawn with style and grace, which makes her look innocent and cunning. I love the way I drew her sitting, and the way her arms fold in between her legs. Drawing angels is so much fun because you can sketch them out to look innocent, good, bad, or even evil. I have two really cool angels that I drew a while back, one was on how to draw a fallen angel, and the other is located in the “Concept art” section under the “Fantasy” category. If you think about it, angels are also fantasy beings because no one really knows if they are real or false. I know that there are stories on how children turn into angels when they pass, and the legends that everyone has a guardian angel on their shoulders. But in all reality, anything that can not be seen, or heard, is nothing more than a fantasy. And it is from fantasy that hopes and dreams come from. I know God is real, and I know the bible talks of heaven being filled with angels. For the time being, let's just say that angels are beautiful beings that come to us in our dreams, and guide us through our hardships. I want you guys to enjoy this tutorial that will show you step by step, on “how to draw a angel. Merry Christmas guys, and happy drawing!

How to Draw a Angel

how to draw a angel step 1

STEP 1.

When drawing a angel, you need to start by sketching out your angels body position or pose that you see here. SO let's start by drawing a circle shape for her head and then adding the facial guidelines. Next sketch out the shape of her torso, and then draw the shape of the bottom half of the angels body. You will end this step by drawing the outlined shape of the angel wings and then draw the limb lines for her arms, and legs.

STEP 3.

Drawing angel hair is easy and it is drawn from preference really. For my angel I chose to give her long hair. So, if you want to draw your angel with loin hair you will do so now. If not, just choose the length you want and go from there. Once the hair style is drawn out, you can sketch out the pretty scarf around the angels neck. Add the striped lines and then begin sketching out the angel wings. Before you go, draw some shape for her shoulders and her shirt, and then give her a mouth.
