Start by sketching the head and neck of the cartoon pelican. Use long curved lines and short “U” shaped lines to give the head a feathery look.
Draw the eyes of the pelican. Use curved lines to create irregular rounded outlines. Draw a curved line over the head to indicate the eyelids. Surround a circle within a circle, then shade them to indicate pupils. Draw a curved line over each eye to form the eyebrows.
Begin sketching the pelican’s large beak. Draw a wavy line on the face. From there, extend two long curves and allow them to meet at a point. Draw a short curved line at the corner of the mouth.
Use overlapping curved lines to draw the drooping bottom of the beak. Then use a curved line for the front of the neck, and a series of curved lines to indicate the fur of the cheeks.
Draw wings. Use a long curved line for the top of the wing, and overlapping curves for the feathers along the bottom.
Use a long, curved line to draw the bird’s belly. Then use “U” shaped lines to outline the tail.
Draw legs, erase as needed. Use a series of curved lines to trace the hairy upper leg. Then, stretch a pair of curved lines to form the legs and feet. Draw pairs of curves in the shape of a “W” and let them meet at gentle points. Draw curved lines between the toes to create webbed feet.
Draw the other leg. Use curved lines for the upper leg and overlapping curves to shape the foot in the picture.
