Step 1


– Lightly draw a circle and then draw guidelines thru it as seen above. Now you will have an easier time placing the face’s features.

– Draw a sideways letter ‘S’ shape for the mouth.

Step 3


– Draw a #5-like shape in the center of the face.

– Draw the front of the beak.

– Finish the beak.

– Draw letter ‘W’ and ‘J’ shapes around the circle on the right side of the head.

Step 5


– Finish the petals on the flower.

– Draw an odd-eggplant shaped oval lightly…for the body.

– Draw the beginning shapes of the wings.

Step 6


– Add some finishing details to the flower.

– Draw guidelines for the wings and the thighs. Draw them lightly so they can be erased easily.

Step 7


– Use the guidelines to help you draw the feathers.

– The lower feathers can be drawn as capital letter ‘J’ shapes. On the left wing, some of the feathers have a slight ‘s’-like curve to them.

– The top most feather, on both sides, is like a capital letter ‘D’ shape.

– Draw letter ‘Y’ shaped guides and ovals for the feet guides.

Step 8

– The feathers on the right side are sort of letter ‘D’ shaped but without the bottom.

– Outline the left foot’s guides. Draw ovals on the right foot’s guides.

-Draw a long letter ‘U’ shaped guide for the bottom tail feathers.

Step 9


– Outline the right foot’s guides.

– Draw moon shaped claws (or curved letter ‘v’ shapes).

– Draw the tail feathers…which really are just curved, long, letter ‘U’ shapes.

      I thought it was from whoever made the movie (Dreamworks?) I didn’t make that final picture – I drew the black and white one.
