Draw an elongated irregular oval on a sheet of paper, which is slightly tilted to the side.
Head's shape and neck
Draw a short, thin neck, the woodpecker’s head goes from it. Draw the head with the help of the arcs which are connected in the sharp corner.
Draw them on the head, using short chaotic lines.
Draw it long and sharp. Draw a smile, because we have a woodpecker-humorist.
"Collar" on the chest
Start drawing from the neck, it must look fluffy. Draw a rounded line from the “collar” which looks like an inverted cane.
It’s a cartoon character, it has the usual arms instead of the wings. Draw them raised up.
Don’t forget to draw Woody’s eyebrows, tongue, legs (they’re more similar to the bird’s legs), and the end of the hands.
They look like the winter mittens.
Draw them in a form of elongated ovals. And don’t forget about the pupils.
Color the woodpecker’s head in red. The beak and the legs are yellow, and its robe is blue (though you can make experiments with the colors).
