We start drawing two cross lines in the center of the sheet. They will help to draw the main details correctly and proportionally. Draw them with the help of a ruler. At the end we will have to erase them, so don’t press the pencil to avoid the marks.
Start drawing the main parts – the head and the body. Draw the head in the form of a small circle, using compasses. Draw the body in the form of a big oval.
We have to unite the parts. Do this with the help of smooth lines. Then erase all unnecessary things which are being intersected. Also, it’s time to erase the auxiliary details.
Carefully do it with an eraser, without damaging the necessary details.
Change a little bit the back part of the big oval because this is where we draw the tail. Therefore, extend the lines in order to get a small angle.
Erase the lines which are being intersected.
Attach the long feathers to the back part; they are directed upwards.
Draw a big horizontal droplet on the body. This figure will serve as a wing which we can see in the bird’s lateral position. Another wing is hiding on the other side. But we won’t draw it because it’s not visible
It’s sharp and very strong. First draw one part of it.
Then draw the other one on the previous example.
Eyes and plumage
The bird’s eyes are of medium size. The pupils remind small black buttons.
Don’t forget to draw the plumage using the wavy lines.
The feet are of medium length, they are thin.
Look through the instruction carefully. See if you missed anything, then add it.
A few more touches and the drawing is ready.
