This fairy is a cutie, and is constructed from some very basic geometric shapes. The head is a circle, the wings and dress are triangles, and the legs and arms are not much more than curved lines.

Step 1
Start by sketching these basic shapes. Remember to make your lines light, because you will erase them later.

Step 2
With the basic geometric shapes drawn, you can be confident that all of the fairies proportions will be just right. Next let's make those geometric shapes a little more fairy-like. Begin with the dress and then work out, shaping the wings, head, legs and ballet slippers.

Step 3
Now let's draw the hands. The hands are one of the most challenging parts of this fairy. Take your time, observe the width and length of the fingers, in addition to the space between each finger. Remember to sketch lightly until you have the perfect shape.

Step 4
This step is just adding the details. You can copy what you see in the final picture or add you own creative flair. With your basic shape completed, you are sure to have a beautiful fairy no matter what!

Step 5
Darken the lines with your pencil or a black marker. If you would like to color your fairy, colored pencils or crayons will work great.


If your drawing didn't turn out as well as you hoped, try drawing it upside down. It might seem like a funny idea, but it makes you think differently.

Look at the drawing as a bunch of lines, rather than a fairy. Think about how the lines fit together. How one line curves and then crosses another. Find the shapes between the lines and draw them.

Try again.
