Creating Angel Drawings For Your Unique Masterpiece
Angel drawings throughout the ages have evolved with artistic cultural changes and new vision as to the way we envision these creatures.
Whether you believe they exist or not doesn't really matter, what does matter is that there are no genuine models for angels.
Like vampires and werewolves,
angel drawings are in the eyes of the beholder, with a lot of influence
from past renditions. However, to widen the range of vision we have
given to angels, it's going to take some creative innovation to keep the
basic framework for drawing angels, yet allow the images to evolve into
modern day art.
Configuration Is there a difference between a fairy and an angel? You betch ya, or at least in the minds of the artwork viewers.
The drawing of an angels usually takes a homogenous theme to indicate the image is indeed that of an angel,
rather than a creature from Greek or Roman mythology. Long flowing
hair, oversized majestic wings, tranquil faces and loose-fitting
garments will get your point across in drawing angels. However, since
there is no legitimate model to craft the image after, it doesn't hurt
to take a few liberties when creating your own unique angel.
Outside The Box A good artist knows how to think outside the box, and a great artist doesn't even know where the box is. Angel drawings that are unique and original command attention from the art admirer and
can powerfully impact a charcoal sketch or painting. Creating unusual
and engaging angels are fair game to re-invent the traditional images
and set your drawing in a league of its own.
Dated Angels When
one artist copies another, a perpetual cycle begins with how we
perceive an angel to look. 12th Century angels hung on to their humble
beginnings until an entrepreneurial visionary gave them a makeover and
turned bleak into chic.
When you are drawing angels, find your still and quiet voice that
instructs you from within and go with what you know. Art is a gift that
stretches the imagination and touches a nerve with the admirer. A
quality piece of artwork will evoke some kind of emotion from the
viewer. Good or bad, it matters not. Sadness, anger, joy, or peace; the
artists have done their job.
