How to Draw a Harpy for Kids

Artist: Dawn / June 12, 2012

Step 1.

First, make a circle for the head of the harpy.

Step 2.

You will then draw out the shape of the face simply by thickening the bottom jaw line. Draw the alien like eyes, then move along.

Step 3.

The next thing we need to do is start the drawing process for the harpy's winged arms. These saddle like shapes should expand like you see here. The torso should also be drawn as well as the simple shapes of the chest or bust.

Step 4.

Make a simple bowl shape for the harpy's head and or hairstyle. Add the strand lines like so, then draw a line to separate the skin from the panty line.

Step 5.

All you will have to do now is draw out the rest of the wings or feathers for the wings, then draw the thick shaped legs and clawed feet. Erase the lines and shapes that you made in step one to clean up the drawing.

Step 6.

Now that all is complete, you should end up with a drawing that looks like the one you see here. Color in your harpy using the colors you like.
