The other day I was drawing an angelic figure that was derived from my imagination and today I will be showing you "how to draw a dark angel", step by step. Unfortunately I’m all out of ideas for a cool story to tag to this design concept. All I can tell you is that this is how I see a dark angel looking if there was such a thing. The body pose and style is a little different from what I’m used to drawing and I think you will find that this angel’s body has a lot of edges and angles that are straight and sharp. I took reference after the NIN lead singer since I've been having an NIN obsession (like that never happens). You know how you get into obsessions with various bands in an ongoing cycle ;) The lesson overall is going to be somewhat easy, but if you find that you are having a problem drawing a dark angel like the one you see here, try and go with your own concept that is a bit easier for you to draw. I will see what I can do about making a anime style angel figure broken down into a tutorial. For now have fun with teaching yourself "how to draw a dark angel" and I will get busy with uploading more tutorials for you guys to have fun with. So keep those pencils in hand and get ready to have a blast. Adios amigos and enjoy!

STEP 1.

This is going to be a lengthily lesson so be prepared. Like every tutorial you will start with some shapes and guides that will eventually form a frame for your angel figure. Begin with a small head shape and from there make the guides for the wings, and upper body like you see here.

You are going to draw the structure of the angel's face in a side view profile and because of this you will have an easier time sketching out the face. Once the face is done you can draw in the hair style the way you see it here.
