Step 2. Draw out the details for our Valentine's Day angel

Now that you drew the contour of our Valentine's angel body and hair, we need to draw details. We draw the flower in our angel's hand and the bows. Then, draw the cute face of our angel: her eyes, nose, and lips.

Step 3. Shade the drawing of the Valentine's Day angel

Next, we need to shade our drawing. As you can see, our drawing has a few shades of grey. The wing and the towel are almost white. The body is light grey, and the hair is darker. The bows are the darkest. You may choose to color the bows and the flowers with colored pencils. Pay attention to shades. In our drawing, the light is on the right, so the left side of our Valentine's angel's face is in the shade. Also, the shade is on the bottom of the towel and the bottom parts of the angel's body.

Continue adding shades to our drawing. As you can see, we went over the drawing, adding darker shading to our Valentine's angel back, wing, and bottom. Then, we need to darken the hair, paying special attention to drawing locks of hair, as shown below.
