I hope everyone is enjoying their Easter, for those of you that celebrate this holiday. I myself had an awesome Easter because it was a beautiful slightly warm sunny day. I watched my dogs run around the yard as they chased away all kinds of wild baby birds. Oh yeah, I also seen a mother moose and her baby on the way home to my house, it was an awesome view because they where so close. Anyways the last lesson I have for you guys for the day is going to be "how to draw an angel tattoo", step by step. I was actually saving this tutorial for today because it's kind of a holy day seeing how Easter is a holiday where folks celebrate the rebirth of Jesus Christ. I wanted to make a different style angel that would be wicked easy to replicate and have fun with. It's going to be a side view image of a simple looking adult female angel. Her hands are crossed around her chest and her hair is blowing in the breeze. I also made sure that the wings would be easy to make as well, since I know there are a lot of artists that have trouble in this particular area. I think she came out looking kind of pretty with a nice subtle presence. Learning "how to draw an angel tattoo" can be frustrating because you have to figure out what types of angel you would want to have inked on your body. This is a tattoo design that I would definitely get placed on my body if I was looking for an angel design. I hope you enjoy this this tutorial as much as I did making it. I will be back tomorrow with more fun stuff to draw, and with another live drawing session. Peace out people and have a happy Easter.
