How to Create a Bird Ilustration?

Before we start with our illustration, please prepare the necessary materials you need :

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Coloring materials (colored pencils, colored pens; this is optional though)
  • Eraser

Now that you have all the requirements, we can now start with the drawing tutorial.

  • Step 1: Draw a slanted oval shape to create the bird’s body base.
  • Step 2: Draw a smaller oval shape at the top of the body base for the head formation.
  • Step 3: Draw a leaf-like shape within the body base’s sides (bigger oval shape) to form the wings.
  • Step 4: Now that we are done with the wings, we start creating the tail by drawing a partly shaped triangles just beneath the body base.
  • Step 5: We are now done with the body formation, let’s go back at the top and start working on the bird’s face. First, we need to draw a very small circular shape within the the head to create the bird’s eye.
  • Step 6: Next, we create the beak by drawing a partly curved triangle shape within the lower-left part of the head. The bird’s position is actually facing front sidewards.
  • Step 7: Now, we are on our last part of the formation illustration, we are now going to draw two small slanting triangles to create the birds feet.
  • Step 8: We are finally done with our structure illustration, it is now time to put the final furnishing of the drawing by applying some contouring within the illustration to give a 3D effect. Also put lines and wedges within the wings and tweak the bird’s feet by adding some bird claws to it.
