How to Draw a Black Bird

Artist: Dawn / August 24, 2015

Step 1.

Draw a small circle for the head and then a small grape shape for the body. Also add the guidelines for the wings?

Step 2.

You will begin forming the black bird's body starting with the head and beak. Once that is done draw the wings in an even wingspan.

Step 3.

You can now draw the tail and tail feathers, then draw the rest of the body along with the black legs and feet.

Step 4.

Begin drawing the skeletal bones for the face and head as well as the heart.

Step 5.

Draw the chest bone down the front of the body, then draw in the black bird's ribs and tail bones.

Step 6.

Lastly, erase your mistakes and then draw the bones for the wings. You can clean up the guidelines too.

Step 7.

Color in your black bird drawing any way you like. Thanks for joining me with making a black bird.

Description: Moving on with the days fill of tutorial submissions, I will upload this lesson on drawing a black bird. As you can see this is not your traditional black bird concept, but I did try to stay true to the bird's characteristics. There are two qualities a black bird drawing should have; the color of the bird, and the colored marking on the shoulder. I went with the red patch instead of the yellow and instead of drawing the patch in a square, I made a heart on the throat. The skeletal bones give it that death appeal to the bird as it is a species that are associated with death.
