Start by drawing a circle. This will form the head of the bird.
Use curved lines to outline the bird’s body. Notice the long “U” shaped lines that form the tail and the overlapping curves that give the belly a feathery texture.
Draw bird wings. Draw the shoulder of the wing using a “U” shaped line. Then, use long, curved “U” shaped lines to form the feathers of the wing tips, enclosing the shape of the wing.
Erase part of the circle that forms the head, allowing it to flow naturally into the body.
Draw a bunch of feathers on top of the head, erasing the paths if necessary. Extend short curved lines from inside the circle and allow them to meet at sharp points.
Draw two large ovals to form the eyes. Draw a curved line above each eye to indicate the eyebrows.
Erase the bottom part of each oval and surround the shape with a curved line. This shows round cheeks. Draw another, smaller oval in each eye. Then outline the curved, irregular triangles that form the top and bottom of the beak. Draw a curved line on the lower part of the beak, detailing the inside of the mouth. Then draw another curved line to form the tongue.
Detail of the bird’s eyes. Draw two small ovals in each eye and fill it with one color to represent the pupil. Draw curved lines on the side of each eye to form the eyelashes.
Draw bird’s feet. Use curved lines to enclose a shape like the letter “X” or “K”, connected to the body by an “arm” of the letter. Then add feather texture to the head and body using curves and hatching strokes.
Color your bird. Young birds are usually yellow, as shown in our illustration. They can also be white, black, brown, gray or red, with patterns such as stripes or spots. As they grow up, the chicks will take on the colors of their parents.
