Hello everyone in Dragoart land, it is I, Dawn your trusted friend and fellow artist. Today we are going to be starting this hot and humid day by drawing some cool, fun, and exciting figures and characters from both fantasy, and reality. To start things off I will be showing you "how to draw a phoenix for kids", step by step. I figured that making this bird of lore would be cool because I now have a fantasy section in the ‘For Kids’ category. The phoenix is a bird that represents many things, but the more popular meaning is a symbolism for strength, determination, and most importantly new beginnings. I think everyone should have the opportunity to teach themselves "how to draw a phoenix" because they are birds that almost everyone loves. Even a U.S. state has a city named after this majestic bird. The lesson in itself is pretty simple, and if you always wanted to make a phoenix of your own but couldn’t because it is a challenging animal to draw, this should be an easy enough lesson for you to follow. I’m sure that you will enjoy this tutorial even if you’re not a kid. Remember, drawing is for everyone, so keep sketching your heart out until all your juices are done for the day. Thanks guys and have fun.
