Step 1To create the outline of the body:• A bell shape will help you form the skirt of the dress• Add a squashed square for the torso• Draw the petal-shaped wings• The fourth wing is hidden behind the fairy’s body
Step 2To add limbs and other features:• Because she is looking to one side, the left line of the neck is shorter than the right• Use rounded shapes for the hands holding the broom• Add rough shapes for the feet• Begin to draw the apron
Step 3To start adding more detailed features:• Add the facial features• Shape the top of the dress• Start to draw the gloves and boots• Begin to add detail to the broom
Step 4To create a sense of movement:• Make the long hair plaited• Add smudges of dirt with a pencil• Use little lines for the broom• Lines will show the dust flying up from the floor
Step 5To bring your fairy to life:• Colour in the fairy• Use shades of brown to draw the floor that she is sweeping
And ta da! There's a magical fairy right before your eyes!
