Artist: Dawn / May 29, 2020

Step 1.

First things first. Start off by making the guides for the angel. This should include the body and head shapes as well as the guidelines for the face and limbs.

Step 2.

You will use the face guide to draw out the actual structure of the face and then draw in the face. The big eyes are closed with long lashes and the lips are relaxed. Draw the hairline and the ear as well as all the detailing to the face.

Step 3.

Next, tackle the upper body starting with the neck and shoulders. The dress will also be drawn in which will give you the shape of the upper body. Short sleeves and a simple style dress.

Step 4.

Go ahead and draw in the arms and hands. As you can see the arms are stretched across as she is holding on to the rope of the swing. When that is done you can draw the big tied bow around the waist.

Step 5.

Go ahead and draw the swing's ropes next.

Step 6.

Now you will draw in the rest of her hair which is blowing in the motion of moving back and forth on the swing. Lastly for this step is you will draw the big wide spread wings. Add definition and detailing to the hair and wings.

Step 7.

Add the wispy strands of her hair.

Step 8.

Now you can draw in the rest of her dress which is long and flowing with the breeze.

Step 9.

Add the shapes of her legs and feet and then draw the wooden seat for the swing.

Step 10.

You will then draw in the sleeping moon and then start erasing the mistakes and guides.

Step 11.

That's it, you are ready to color this angel on a swing. I hope you had fun.
