Tinkebell is considered to be the most famous fairy in modern times, all thanks to Disney’s Peter Pan movie. Because of this, a lot of people have started to have a soft spot for this small yet endearing fairy of all time. A lot of children also have developed a certain liking for her, wanting to become fairies just like Tink. If for some reason you need to learn to draw Tinkerbell, here are the steps in doing so.
Get Tink’s Picture
To start drawing, you should have a couple of her pictures. Go and refer to your favorite Tinkerbell images from children’s books. You can also find some pictures of her on the Internet. Do this so that you can have a very good visual idea of how you would want your Tinkerbell version to look like.
Do not feel restricted by your references. Have the liberty to exercise your creative freedom. Go on and think of your Tink version instead of copying an existing one. A lot of versions have been created as time passed by in both plays and books. Thus, there is really no reason why you couldn’t make your own and give her a new look.
Be Ready With Your Materials
Get a piece of paper, notebook, sketch pad or whatever paper that you want to place your drawing in. Be ready with coloring materials such as crayons, colored pencils or markers so that you can add some color after you have finished your drawing. Take note of the traditional drawings of Tinkerbell. These include colors such as green, silver, pink and yellow. Sometimes, there are also other colors that are similar with her skin tone. However, you can still opt to modify these if you want to.
Get Your Pencil And Draw
Start off by drawing Tink, using a pencil. Do not add color jus yet. Coloring should be done when you have finalized your drawing. Draw lightly at first, so that you can easily erase if ever you have some mistakes. Make the best out of your pencil by using it for shading various portions of your drawing so that you can achieve more visual depth.
Take a look at your images and try to see the basic shapes that Tink has. Sketch these basic shapes that comprise her face, body, head, wings, legs and feet. Try imagining each portion to be a distinct circle, line or curve. Do this so that it would be easier to break her down and draw her piece per piece. It’s recommended that you start out with her head. This is because it would be your drawing’s focal point.
Think of the activity that she would be doing on your drawing. Would she be flying around? Is she standing still? Are her arms on her side or are they up since she would be sprinkling her fairy dust? Consider these things before you set out on drawing the details of her body.
Once you are happy with the way she looks like, get your coloring materials and color her. Use a crayon or marker for darkening the lines and outlining her. Also, clean up your drawing by erasing all the extra lines that you’ve drawn during your sketching period.
If a line does not really add anything to your image, erase it. Last but not the least, color her with your chosen media.
