How To Draw A Fairy Step By Step
Step 1 – Draw The Eyes
Draw two circles in the upper half of your paper to make the fairy’s eyes.
Step 2 – Add Reflections To The Fairy’s Eyes
Next draw some small circles in the top corner of the circles you drew for the eyes. These circles will look like the fairy’s eyes are reflecting light.
Step 3 – Draw Pupils In The Eyes
To draw the pupils in the fairy’s eyes, draw two smaller partial circles in the center of the eye circles. You can fill them in black.
Step 4 – Draw Eyelashes
You can add some eyelashes on your fairy. Draw short strokes on top of the fairy’s eyes.
Step 5 – Draw A Mouth
Draw a small half-circle in between the fairy’s eyes to make a mouth.
Step 6 – Draw The Jawline
To draw the fairy’s face, let’s add a jawline. Draw a large half circle from the side of one eye to the other. You can draw small dots on each side before you draw as a guide.
Step 7 – Draw The Hairline
Draw two lines from each side of the face up to a point in the center of the forehead. You can draw a dot a the top of the head as a guide to help you draw.
Step 8 – Draw A Part In The Hair
Draw a short line from the top of the forehead upwards to create a part in the fairy’s hair.
Step 9 – Draw The Top Of The Head
Draw two curved lines from the center part line to the sides of the head, creating an edge for the fairy’s hair.
Step 10 – Draw The Fairy’s Body
Let’s continue drawing the rest of the fairy’s hair later. Now, we will draw a body for the fairy.
Draw an elongated half-oval shape from the bottom of the fairy’s head downwards.
Step 11 – Draw A Waist
Draw a line in the center of the fairy’s body to create a waist.
Step 12 – Draw A Skirt
Draw two curved lines from the side of the waist to start drawing the fairy’s skirt.
Step 13 – Add Details To The Skirt
Draw two more lines from the end of the fairy’s skirt back up to the opposite side on the waist, to create a dainty fairy skirt.
Step 14 – Draw The Legs
Draw a point down from the fairy’s skirt to create the fairy’s legs.
Step 15 – Add Detail To The Legs
Draw a line up the center of the fairy’s legs to create two distinct legs.
Step 16 – Draw The Arms
Draw arms on the sides of the fairy. Draw two parallel lines out first, then add five fingers to each hand.
Step 17 – Draw Curly Hair
Add scalloped lines on the side of the fairy’s head to create curly hair on the fairy.
Step 18 – Draw Bows In The Hair
Draw two sets of triangles on the side of the fairy’s head to create bows on the fairy’s head.
Step 19 – Draw The Upper Part Of The Wings
Draw wings on the fairy. To draw the fairy’s wings, draw two large half-heart shapes from the top of the fairy’s head to the area between the arms and the hair.
Step 20 – Draw The Lower Part Of The Wings
Draw the bottom half of the fairy’s wings. Draw two half-circles from the bottom of the top circle to the armpit area of the fairy.
Step 21 – Draw A Fairy Wand
If you want to draw a wand in your fairy’s hand, draw two long parallel lines up from the fairy’s hand. Draw a cute shape on the top of the wand, such as a heart, star, cloud, flower, etc.
Ta-da! The line art for your fairy drawing is complete. You can color her in however you wish.
