In this lesson, you will learn to draw birds step by step, in pencil. How to draw a flying parrot.
You will be able to
draw a parrot
properly and learn the techniques for drawing any bird, even a peacock.
The first step of drawing a bird.
Draw the first oval in the center of your sheet of paper. This will be the bird's trunk. Then draw a triangle at the bottom of the oval - a bird's tail.
When this is done, you can add two arched lines for the outstretched wings.
How to draw bird's wings.
Draw the lower contours of the wings. The wings now resemble two leaves.
The head and beak of a parrot.
Draw a smaller oval for the head. In the center of the oval draw a bird's eye. All you need for this tutorial - carefully and gently draw the powerful beak of a parrot.
The final contours of a bird.
Now draw the final forms of breast, back, wings, and tail on both sides. Leave the lower part of the tail to finish at later stage.
Drawing out bird's feathers requires a lot of time because of the detail involved in each individual feather. Each feather must be stretched outwards and become thinner and smaller at the top. Add the soft feathers under the wings. They will look like fluff.
Bird drawing. Final step.
Through several stages, we have almost completed the lesson of drawing a bird. Finish the tail and then draw out legs and claws. Erase the unwanted pencil sketches, which remain from your earlier stages of drawing.
