Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a nymph. Now we're going to start with the head, just a circle, nice and simple and then really basically draw in the body so a couple more circles for the body, a couple lines for the legs, maybe she can be waving. There we've got a basic body for the nymph. Now nymphs are fairies that live in the woods so we're going to give her some wings. I'm just going to do some really cute little butterfly like wings, just using nice oval like shapes that go behind her and over her basic body shape we're going to put a pretty dress. So we're going to use a nice long curved line down from the neck, give her some long sleeves and then a long wavy dress and you can go up so let's see her feet. Let's put in a couple little ovals and then the same for this arm, some nice long sleeves and I'm just going to color this dress in. You can put as much detail as you like though. If you want to give her a little belt, I found that using greens are the best for nymphs because they come from the forest. So Earth tones are the nicest and I've got blue here so let's give her a little belt. And I'm just going to give her a little cute face, just a couple little dots for the eyes and a little smile and I'm going to give her some curly orange hair. Now the hair will go over her wings. Now if you want to show her flying you can put a little bit of shadow underneath her on the ground. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a nymph.
