Hi, my name's Patricia, I'm an artist, and I'm going to show you how to draw fairies in flower dresses. Alright, so, let's draw the fairy. And basically, fairies have smaller bodies. So, I'm just going to make long flowing limbs. And, she's going to be wearing a beautiful dress with flowers all over it. And, it's going to be pink, because I think Fairy's favorite colors are pink. So, here is the beautiful dress. And, she's going to be flying, so, erase that. I'm going to have her positioned over to the side. alright, so, this is going out a little bit, we don't want that. There we go. Alright. And then, with the dresses, I love petal waistlines. So, basically, I'm just doing some lines here for a petal waistline. And, I'm looking at this, and I'm thinking, "Hmm, the dress is too long." I want it to be a cute little tutu. So, you could have a long dress like I just made it if you'd like. Or, you can make a cute little tutu that you'll often see. And, just a little jagged line, and kind of a full skirt. And, on it I'm going to color it in pink. Then, I'm going to add flowers all over it. I think I'm going to go for yellow daisies. Notice how my lines are going in the direction of the skirt, and they'll be darker and lighter for shading if you'd like to do some shading. Here, I'm just going to do a flat color. But, the texture of the lines gives it some motion of which way the fabric is flowing. It's a tongue twister. Alright, again, I am coloring in the top of her dress. This one, I'm just doing a really quick fill in, because I'm not as worried about the fabric as the beautiful flowers that I'm going to embellish it with. These, it's a daisy neckline. And, I don't think fairies are, you know, the love flowers, so they don't really care if - there can never be too many flowers on a fairy dress, is my belief. And, notice how I'm just putting a lot of flowers on. And, let's see here. Let's do - you can also do just a circle. You know, just lots of pretty flowers. And, this is a beautiful fairy dress. Let's add some petals here. Have fun with it. You know, if you're bedazzling a fairy dress, make it beautiful. Alright, so, let's finish this up. We're going to put some legs on her, and some wings. And, she'll be ready to fly away, and show off her beautiful, beautiful new fairy dress. She's a happy fairy. Enjoy!
