How to Draw a Flying Crow

Step 1.


Like always we will draw the guidelines and shapes for this first step.

Step 2.


Using the head guide draw out the front part of the crow's face shape which should also include the beak which is open. Draw in the tongue as well and sketch in the definition and detailing throughout.

Step 3.


Go ahead and draw in the eye as well as color it solid like you see here. When that is done you will draw out the shape of the crow's body in flight. Start with the neck and with the same lining draw the shape of the wing. Add the layers of feathers    

Step 4.


All you have to do here is draw out the other wing which is parallel to the other. Again, draw in the layers of feathers which start small to big.

Step 5.


Once the feet and talons are drawn in you can go ahead and draw out the shape of the eyeball that is clutched within it's grasp. Sketch in the detailing to the eyeball as well.

Step 6.


Here you will draw in the splatter that is all around the eye as the crow is lifting and raising the eyeball from the foundation it came from. Also draw the level of the substance it was emerged in.

Step 7.


For the last drawing step finish off the crow's body and then draw in the detailing to the substance below. Erase the mistakes and all the guides.

Step 8.


That's it, you are all done with drawing a flying crow. Now you can have fun coloring it in.

Description: Hey guys, welcome back to another fun lesson that is a bit different. For those of you that don't know, I am a huge fan of crows/ravens. So much so I even have a faux crow skull necklace pendant that I used to wear all the time, but since I am always indoors now I just leave it hanging from my lamp. This lesson is going to show you how to draw a flying crow, step by step and as you can see this crow has picked up a delectable treat along the way which is an eyeball. I wanted to create something cool and a bit different. I know a lot of people who are into Goth/Emo/Grunge styles will most likely fall in love with this lesson. Drawing flying crows can be a difficult task depending on how much detail goes into them. The inspiration for this crow comes from the crow that is always in flight from the cult classic 'The Crow'. Anyways, I do hope you have fun with this lesson. I will be back with two more so stay tuned in.
