Erase guidelines as needed.Draw a “U” shaped line at the base of the tail to form the bird’s upper leg.
Extend two parallel curved lines to form the lower leg. Then, use a series of short, connected, curved lines to enclose the toes of the foot.
Step: 6 Drawing eyes of cardinal bird
Use a short, curved line to enclose the top of the bird’s far wing. Use several short lines that meet in jagged points to form the tuft of feathers on top of the head.
Use four curved lines to enclose the beak, an irregular diamond shape, and another line to indicate the split in the beak. Finally, draw overlapping curved lines on the wing to add the texture of feathers.
Draw a circle within a circle to form the eye, and shade between the two. Use curved lines to enclose the patch around the beak.
