My daughter Anna got a book in December – How to Draw Fairies. I like to draw, so I studied it and began drawing a fairy using Inkscape. Drawing scalable vector art that can be filled is different than sketching. After I got the sketching finished, I had to redraw most of it to make it fillable so that I could add colors.



I presented my handiwork to Anna. She told me that Tinkerbell’s wings were more blue, she needed a ribbon in her hair, and she had tassles or balls on her shoes. I guess I missed a few critical details. So back to the drawing board I went.


I had hoped to add this little gem to Tux Paint, but I am not sure that I can since Tinkerbell is a Disney trademark image.
