Start by sketching the head of the blue bird. Use a curved line to form the top of the head. Then use some curved lines to create a triangular beak. Finally, use another curved line to draw the neck below the beak.
Extend long, curved lines from the front and back of the neck, outlining the back and abdomen.
Draw a “W” shaped line at the bottom of the bird’s back. This outlines the tips of the wings. Then, draw a series of short, curved lines and “U” shaped lines from the “W” to the beak. This outlines the color of the bird.
Extend a pair of lines from the tips of the wings to form the tail. Use a series of small, “U” shaped lines to enclose the tail at the bottom. Draw long, roughly straight lines the length of the tail.
Use a series of short lines to connect the belly to the tail, allowing them to meet at jagged points. Notice the pair of longer lines that form the bird’s upper legs.
Extend a pair of parallel lines from the top leg, forming the bottom leg. Then, enclose a “U” shape on the bottom of the leg to outline the grip foot. At the back of the foot, wrap some curves to form the claws.
In addition to the feet, draw a small circle. Connect it to the pins using a pair of straight lines. This starts the branch on which the bird sits. Extend the lines beyond the feet. Just below the top leg, draw a curved and pointed shape on the top of the branch, indicating the other leg.
Bird detail and texture. Use “U” and “J” lines of different sizes to add a feathery texture to the wings. Use hyphens to detail the head, neck, and chest.
Mine detail with short lines. Draw a circular eye, with a much smaller circle inside it. Add dimension with short lines around the eyes.
