How to Draw Cartoon Birds


Animals being such a broad subject - this 'cartoon birds' section is for all the bird lovers out there...

Those that love to draw too of course!

Actually, there was a lesson that I created closer to the time when the site was just getting started.

It shows how you can use the same basic structure to draw an assortment of different birds - all shapes and sizes.

It's quite simple - just gotta add some creativity.


More on this...

It's refreshing to know - that unlike other animals, ones more complex in structure, like mammals, for example...

Cartoon Birds

These feathered creatures, are easier to draw - given that they all *pretty much* take on the same basic shape.

A circle for the head.

An oval - perhaps, for the body.

Triangles for wings, and the beak.

Really, to make each bird different - it's all about focusing on what each one looks like in real life, and then tweaking the lines that you map on and around this simple arrangement of shapes...

To come up with the specific bird, you're trying to draw.


And so...

From eagles to toucans to penguins to flamingos...
