How to Draw a Partridge

Artist: Dawn / December 11, 2016

Step 1.

Start off with two simple guide shapes. One for the round body and another for the smaller head. Add guides for the legs and neck too.

Step 2.

You will now draw the head followed by the partridge's eye and pointed beak. When that is done create the markings around the face and brow area.

Step 3.

We will now use the guide shapes to draw the bird's body shape and structure. It's sort of shaped like an almond but with a tail and feathers. Once the body is drawn in and you have detailed the tail and wing feathers you can tackle the next step.

Step 4.

You have reached the last drawing step. Here you will draw in the legs and feet, as well as the design pattern on the wing. Once that is done you can erase the mistakes followed by the guides.

Step 5.

Here you have it, a new bird drawn by you. Now just color in your partridge and even add a pear tree.

Description: Oh boy, Christmas is just around the corner, in less than two weeks to be exact. Here is a bird that is mentioned in a popular song called 'Twelve Days of Christmas' and it sits in a pear tree. So, here is how to draw a partridge, step by step. I have never done a lesson on one of these birds before so I'm sure for those of you who like drawing birds will have a blast with this nicely drawn partridge. These are also game birds. They are often found just wondering on the side of dirt roads or in fields. Where I live old timers drive around with little rifles in their trucks in hopes to come across a partridge. They usually like to bring this small to medium sized bird back to the Mrs for diner. Anyways, they are cute despite the fact that they are commonly hunted. I think you will enjoy drawing a game bird like the partridge. You can make this drawing more exciting by drawing the partridge in a pear tree. Well, that's all for this tut description, meet me back here in a few with other tuts coming after you.
