Drawing a Cherub and Fairy


There are a total of nine drawing steps and this lesson will be a bit challenging to those of you who are novice artists. Start with a bunch of guidelines and shapes to create the workable framework for your Fairy and Cherub. You will also need to dr   


Using the guides and shapes you just made, carefully and slowly start tackling the fairy's face structure. When you have the outline of her face drawn, you can tackle the actual face starting with her beautiful big eyes which are closed and the lashe   


This is probably one of my favorite parts to the lesson. We will be tackling her long, lustrous hair which is straight and although looks stringy, is very full of life and beauty. The hair falls all over her face and even her shoulders and hand which   


Okay, next. Let's draw the oversized hand and the long shapes of her fingers. The tips to each finger should have points for the nails. This is to exaggerate the size because the Cherub will be hovering over her hand.


Draw in more hair as it falls down her wrist, then draw in her fairy style ear and then her shoulder and some of her back. Sketch in the detailing and definition on her body and inside the ears as well.


We will draw in more of her hair as it flows through her fingers and down her arm. This is such a task to get all her hair drawn out and in. So please take your time, there is no rush. This piece of art took me a while and I have been drawing for yea   


Now it's time to get started on the cherub. It's just like drawing a baby, but with wings. The back of the cherub is what we will be drawing which is the head, back and arm/hand which is reaching out towards the fairy. Sketch in the detailing to his    


Okay, take your time as you start the process of drawing his beautiful wings which are feathered out and expanded since he is in flight. When you get the wings all sketched out and drawn in, go ahead and draw the Cherub's legs and feet. Detail and de   


Sketch in more of the wings on the opposite side and then you are ready to erase the mistakes and all the guides you've made.


Here is the piece when you are all done. Now you have to color in the art to really bring the beauty out and to life.

Description: Hey gang, welcome back to another fun filled lesson here on Drago! Today I will be uploading this very special lesson that took me almost a whole day to complete. I started this drawing last week and worked on it little by little for a day or two and the end result came out beautiful. There isn't one thing about this drawing that I don't love. Everything from the grown, bigger fairy (The woman with the long blue hair) to all the little fairies hovering around the baby angel. The baby angel or Cherub is absolutely adorable. It reminds me if a baby that I know. Anyways, I don't want to talk too much because I am really excited to be sharing this lesson with all of you. If you love this tut, be sure to share, share, share. Whenever I am proud of a drawing I love seeing my work shared everywhere. For a while I wanted to do a lesson on drawing a Cherub, but I never did. So here it is, a Cherub surrounded by the magical presence of fairies. I hope you enjoy.
