How To Draw A Flamingo Easy Step By Step

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by drawing a circle. This will form the flamingo’s head. Then, extend a pair of parallel, loose “S” shaped curves from the circle. Notice that one line is longer than the other. This forms the flamingo’s sinusoidal neck.

Step 2

Draw the beak of a flamingo. Draw two curved lines extending diagonally from the top and allow them to curve downwards before meeting at a gentle point. Notice that the flamingo’s beak is large and hooked.

Step 3

Next, draw the body of the flamingo. Sketch a large oval at the base of the neck.

Step 4

Detail the contours of the body, including the hips and tail feathers. To do this, stretch the long line of the neck into an oval that forms the body, then back out. Connect it again with the oval, enclosing a curved, lumpy triangle. Then outline the tail feathers using a combination of long and short lines to give the tail a bushy appearance. The feathers should resemble a drooping triangle.

Step 5

Erase the guides left by the original circle and oval. Pay attention to leave a circular part to distinguish the head from the neck.

Step 6

Draw first of the long legs of the flamingo. Use a set of roughly parallel lines, but note how the lines diverge at the hips, knees, and feet. Round the foot using two upside-down “U” shaped lines that meet at points to form the toes.

Step 7

Draw the second leg emerging from behind the first leg, noting the bend of the knee. Again, use “U” shaped lines to enclose the foot, while forming the toes.

Step 8

Feather detail. Use overlapping long and short lines to add texture to the body.

Step 9

Detailed view of the flamingo’s face. Draw a shaded dot to form the eye and connect it to the sides of the face using two curved lines. Draw another curved line down the center of the beak and a final line that cuts across it near the tip of the beak.

Step 10

Color your flamingo. Healthy flamingos are bright pink due to a nutrient in the food they love to eat. Some flamingos have a color that fades to white.
