With a Touch of Magic

Fairy Drawing

Fairies are beautiful and mystical creatures...that can also be downright annoying, with all their flitting about, manic giggling and mischief making; yet despite their sometimes irksome characteristics, Fairy Drawings can be both strikingly beautiful and downright adorable.

Often when people think of Fairy Drawings, the first image that comes to mind is that of Tinkerbell; a popular Disney character who made her debut in the animated movie classic "Peter Pan" and has gone on to become a pop culture icon and the official trademark/mascot of Walt Disney Pictures.  

The cute, clever blonde pixie who likely started out as a pencil drawing of a fairy has become an internationally known celebrity; one whose success has been parlayed into merchandise, art and miniature pieces, and even her own home video line.

That Tink is one happenin' lady; one who over the years has probably made a ton of moola for her studio and her creators. Yet Fairy Drawings are not always light hearted and high profile in nature. Sometimes artists make drawings of a fairy because they want to create a serious artistic rendering of a mythical creature—and sometimes they can be downright scary!

Often these images will appear cherubic and childlike, like small children with wings and a sparkly aura (yeah yeah yeah, and their poor moms have to constantly clean up all that fairy dust). Holiday fairies often resemble elves or little kids who are dressed in red and green and sport matching wings. Sometimes, though, fairies are depicted as beautiful young women; and occasionally even as handsome young men! Hey, it's the age of equality!

At time fairies are drawn to resemble wise old elders; then an illustrator might go completely wacko and draw a woodland sprite that sports all sorts of strange colors and likens a space alien!

Old Elders are much easier to draw than beautiful fairies!

So who is your fairy? Hopefully, he/she is nothing like the freaky fairy we just described! Seriously though, a mythical creature such as this one can be imagined and drawn in any number of delightful ways. Have fun, use your imagination, and keep in mind a few basic characteristics that most illustrated fairies have in common:

  • The majority of fairies have essential human features, including arms, legs, a nose, a mouth, etc. So in conjuring a fairy caricature, the artist may want to start with a rendering of the human form.
  • Fairies always have wings (Yeah, yeah, we know what you're thinking: "Well, duh!"); appendages that can best be drawn with long, curved lines and broad strokes.
  • As these sprites are often seen as creatures of nature, many illustrators like to include renderings of florals and greenery in their fairy illustrations.
  • Fairies, while sometimes portrayed in black and white etchings, are often more colorful. Break out the colored pencils for these works; or layer your final product with paints, sparkles and glitter.
  • Fairies are rarely portrayed as cranky creatures. Most of these beings are annoyingly smiley and chipper, even before they have sipped their morning coffee!

Bring out your inner pixie with a fairy rendering that expresses your creativity and individuality. Look out Tinkerbell; there are some new fairies in town!
