Don’t save the space on the paper. Draw a large oval figure at the top.
Add a smaller figure of an almond shape at the bottom. All parts of the body are proportional.
They are the forelimbs of the bird, which are used for flight.
Claws and tail
Claws ( the lower bird’s limbs) help to move on the ground and hold the branch.
There are four fingers on the limbs, as a rule.
Add the tail’s feathers.
It’s interesting to know! Birds use the tail as a rudder. It makes the contour of the body smooth and streamlined, eliminates air turbulence during the flight. The tail of many birds works as a brake for some time before the landing, it opens almost completely and tucks down.
Draw the eyes and the pupils inside. These details must be equal.
A few people know that the upper part of the beak is called the maxilla and the lower one is mandible.
All body of our character is covered by it, but we’ll draw only a couple of feathers on the wings and on the head.
