How To Draw A Parrot

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 parrot’s head

Step 2

Next, outline the parrot’s body. First, extend a curved line down from the top. Round the line – imagine it forming a complete circle if it continues. This forms the parrot’s belly. Then, from the opposite side of the circle, extend a long, curved line. This outlines the parrot’s back and tail. Finally, connect the lines using a third curved line, enclosing the parrot’s tail

Step 3

Erase the guide lines separating the parrot’s head and body.

Step 4

Using a curved line, enclose a circle in front of the parrot’s head. This will complete the shape of the head. Then, use two curved lines to form a large upside down teardrop shape along the back of the bird’s body. This outlines the wings.

Step 5

At the front of the head, use three short, curved lines to enclose a curved triangle overlapping the face. This is the parrot’s beak. Clamp the half circle below the beak, using a short, curved line. This forms the lower jaw of the beak.

Step 6

Draw several rows of wavy lines across the bird’s wings, using the connected “U” shaped lines to form each layer. Do the same at the tail end. At the tips of the wings and tail, draw vertical curved lines, indicating flight feathers (learn how to draw a feather).

Step 7

Remove the guide lines from the bird face.

Step 8

Draw a set of bumpy, wavy, parallel lines across the front of the bird, passing near the base of the tail. This forms the branch the bird is sitting on. Then draw a few small protrusions from the branches. Remove guide lines if necessary.

Step 9

Add details to your parrot. Attach a few small triangles on the top of the head to represent a bunch of feathers. Draw an oval within an oval to form the eye. Draw a small circle within the smaller oval and shade around it. Draw a thick, curved line at the corner of the eye to represent the eyelashes, and a curved line above to form the eyebrows. Use a set of curved lines, joined at each end at gentle points, to form the foot. Remove guide lines if necessary. Add feather detail to the bird’s chest using “V” shaped areas of short, curved lines

Step 10

Color your parrot. The bird in our example is green, but the parrot comes in many other colors too – red, blue, yellow, gray, or a combination of colors.
