How to Draw a Butterfly Fairy Worksteet

This free printable drawing worksheet is a fun and easy project that can help the young artist develop confidence and skill.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: If your drawing does not turn out perfect do not get discouraged, no one is as hard on themselves as a true artist. Learning to draw takes practice so draw every day and soon you will be making beautiful pictures. Come back often and try some of my other projects.

Decide on your pose. Have the character doing something. A pose where the subject is just standing is not as interesting.

You may want to use a piece of scratch paper to work out the position of your characters arms and legs.

Draw a stick figure in the position you want your character to be in. Next, draw the arms and legs and body around the stick figure.  The fairy has long arms and legs but they have some slight curves to them also.

Once you have the basic shape worked out then erase the extra lines of the stick figure.

Keep the face simple. Our example is in profile. The eyes are halfway between the top of the head and the chin. The eyes are simply a curved line going downward for the eyelid and a dash below that for the eye. The nose is just a triangle and the mouth is a curved line for the upper lip and a little half circle for the bottom lip. The ear is pointed, but if you have problems with the ear you can cover it up with hair.

Keep the hair simple, draw it like long waves.

The hands start out not quite square, the thumb is like a peanut off to one side. The fingers are first four lines spaced evenly apart, and then draw a second line for each finger.

The feet are three circles, a big one for the heel, a small one for the ball of the foot, and a little one to be the end of the big toe. Draw lines across the top and the bottom of the circles to make the basic foot shape, remember the bottom curves up a little and the top gets higher by the ankle.

The butterfly wings may take some time to work out. They are like two triangles; one above is big and tilted outward, and the one below is thin and tilted downward. Use a separate piece of scratch paper and work out your ideas before drawing it on your project. Use long curvy lines to give the wings character. Draw circles, patterns or diamonds on the wings.

The example is dressed in leaves. You can design clothing from flowers, feathers or anything. Some fairies may make cloth out of cocoon silk so they might have flowing robes or dresses.

Color is your choice since it is a fantasy creature anything goes.

Give your fairy a world. Put her in a garden, a cave or inside a tree hole. Have big flowers growing over her so she looks small. Give her some friends like a robin or a squirrel, but make them bigger than she is.
