Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by drawing a circle. This will form the head of the duck.
Drag a long, curved line from the bottom of the circle to form the duckling’s neck, chest, and belly. Extend a shorter curved line from the circle to form the nape.
Use a series of curved lines to outline the duckling’s wings. Notice how the top of the wing consists of a single curve, while the bottom of the wing is a scalloped pattern of joined “U” shaped lines. It should also be noted that the wing is not completely enclosed when it is attached to the fuselage.
Detail the wings with a feather texture by drawing a series of “U” shaped lines that are joined together. Then draw the tail using some long curves and some short curves, enclosing the duck’s body.
Draw the beak using curved lines. Notice the bulge at the tip of the beak and how the top and bottom of the beak overlap. Enclose a curved triangle in the lower part of the beak to indicate an open mouth.
Remove the guides from the mine.
Draw baby propeller. Use parallel curved lines to draw the legs, then outline a “W” shape at the bottom to enclose the toes. Draw a curved line between each toe to represent the part of the net that helps the duck swim.
Use curved lines to outline the rest of the leg and foot. Notice the overlap of the lines at the flex of the ankle and the line separating the individual toes.
View your duckling details. Draw a small oval on the beak to indicate the nostril. Draw a large circle for the eye, with a small oval inside it. Shade between the two rows and draw short, curved lines on top of the eyes to indicate the lashes. Glue a curved and pointed shape above the eyes for the eyebrows and draw a tuft of hair on the top of the head using a series of short and curved lines that meet at sharp points. Delete the guide lines if necessary. Finally, detail the body with hatches at the neck and side of the wings.
Color your duckling. Many are depicted in bright yellow, as in our example. However, ducklings can also be white, gray, brown, black, spotted or striped.
