How to Draw Angels

Step 1.

Begin by drawing the guide shapes of both angels like so. This should include the torsos, bottoms, and heads.

Step 2.

Instead of drawing the bodies, we will draw the one of the white angel's wings. This should be big and feathery.

Step 3.

In this next step you will draw the right wing which looks a little larger then the left. Add some detailing to the wings like so, then proceed to step four.

Step 4.

Proceed to draw the angel's arm as it hoovers over the body of the second angel. Add the shape of her breast, then draw the lining of her figure.

Step 5.

Finish drawing the angel's body which should be very shapely. Add the thigh and crease indents to the back and buttocks.

Step 6.

Draw the small portion of the head that is viewable, then sketch in the long wavy hair as well.

Step 7.

We will get started with drawing the fallen angel's body. Begin with the shoulders, then his arms followed by his head and hair. The angel's head is down because he is weeping.

Step 8.

Now draw the wings on his back, but don't make them too big. The feather edging should be drawn to look sharp and damaged.

Step 9.

Finish drawing the body which is only his back. Then draw the thigh.

Step 10.

Since this is a fallen angel, the back is going to be drawn to look damaged from being ripped and torn. Add some blood on the shirt followed by the folds or creases in the shirt.

Step 11.

Lastly, draw the horizontal line which is for the foundation that these two angels are sitting on. Erase the mistakes and you are all done.

Step 12.

Here is the line art for your two angels. Now you can color them in to look beautiful together.

I know a lot of you have seen this artwork on my Facebook page and I wanted to make sure I get the lesson uploaded before days end. Here is "how to draw angels", step by step. As you can see there are two angels; one is a male and the other is a female. The female is the larger of the two with her arm wrapped around the male. The story behind the drawing is to showcase how the comfort from a heavenly to a dark angel can help mend the wounds from falling out of God's kingdom. Battered wings and a saddened heart put the fallen angel in regret of ever disobeying his Lord. Have fun with drawing angels and I will return with more tutorial fun.
