Make two shapes that are in the form of eggs. The head shape should be a bit smaller then the body.


When drawing out the head of the chicken, be sure to make the curved shapes for the forehead, and then draw in the chickens crown which is in three. Make the back of the head and move along to step three.


Continue to draw out the body starting with the neck and chest first. When you are done with that, you can draw out the round wing, and the back of the chickens body like you see here. Leave an empty spot for the tail in the next step.


I said you would be drawing out the tail, but I thought you should first draw out the chicken's eye, and eyeball. Next, draw out the small beak and then the chickens wattle which is the bag like sack under the beak.


Again, no tail yet instead draw in the feet, and be sure to draw out the toes too. As you can see this is a very simple step as well as a simple tutorial.


Finally for the last drawing step all you have to do is draw in the tail and then sketch the wings feathery fingers. You can start erasing the shapes that you drew in step one, and then you are all done.


Here is what the drawing looks like when you are all done. Now you can color in your chicken to really make it looks awesome. Thanks folks and be sure to join me again.

Description: When you think of chickens you really don’t think that they can be cute to draw unless of course you are making a chic, or a baby chicken that is stubby, and full of puff. For the last ‘for kids’ lesson I will be showing you "how to draw a chicken for kids", step by step. Out of all the grown chickens I have made for Dragoart, this has got to be the cutest and nicest one. I love the way the body came out as well as the style and coloring job I did. The chicken is colored all white and on the head I made sure to use a shade that stands out against the white body. I only used four shades to color in my chicken, and they are white, red, blue, and a yellowish orange. The green background and baby blue sky adds another nice touch to this chicken. One great way to make the lining blend well with the light colored chicken is to use a shade of grey when drawing out the initial lining for your chicken. Chickens are not only great fun to watch clucking and pecking as they wonder about, they can sometimes be great fun to draw too.
