To sketch a drawing of an angel, draw a circle in the middle of a piece of paper, draw a triangle below the circle with arms and feet, draw the wings above the head, and finish by adding details such as stars and trumpets. This drawing takes about five minutes and requires only a pencil, eraser and paper.

  1. Draw the head

    Sketch a circle in the middle of the paper. Add facial details such as eyes, ears, a mouth and a nose. Draw hair on top of the head.

  2. Add the body

    Draw a triangle below the circle with the top point of the triangle touching the bottom of the circle. Draw the triangle on a slight diagonal if you want to portray the angel floating. Add details to the angel's robe such as a belt, sash or pattern. Draw two feet sticking out from under the robe and two arms.

  3. Sketch the wings

    Draw the wings on the angel by drawing two hooks extending from the top of the angel's head. Draw the hooks facing outwards. Finish the wings by drawing scalloped edges around each side of the angel continuing from the hooks.

  4. Add the details

    Finish the drawing by adding final details to the picture such as stars around the angel or a trumpet extending from the angel's mouth.
