No need to search in the sky to find a fun tutorial on how to draw an angel! Simply look below to discover a cute illustration that can be duplicated by anyone (from young kids to complete beginners!). It's true that this cartoon character does have eight steps instead of six, but you will see that this doesn't make this tutorial more difficult.
Great! Start this lesson by illustrating the head using a large circular shape. As you can see below, the bottom of the shape is slightly larger while the top is narrower.
Next, draw the body using a long rectangle. Notice how the bottom of the shape is larger. The height of the body should the same as the height of the head.
Cool! Now it's time to draw the arms using long and thing rectangles on both sides of the body. The hands are represented by two small circular shapes.
Ears are done using small circles. The feet are also made using small circular lines. Notice how the feet are large and flat on the bottom.
Time to work on more complex shapes! The eyes are drawn using large circles. These circular shapes can be placed next to each other as shown below. The hair is done using small curved lines.
Pupils are made from circles. Notice how these pupils are slightly closer to each other compared to the eyes. The wings are made from long curved lines.
Finally, draw a small ring above the head of the cartoon character. The pupils are filled with small oval shapes. Finally, the nose and the mouth are made from long curved lines.
Nice work! This black and white version should help you see the complete picture! There are a few difficult shapes to create, but overall this illustration is rather easy to achieved once you are familiar with all steps.
Finally, you can also draw a complex angel drawing featuring a cartoon character filled with great colors, shadows and lighting effects. Have fun with these tutorials!
