How to Draw a Spirit Eagle

Artist: Dawn / May 13, 2020

Step 1.

We will draw in the guide shapes and guidelines for your spirit eagle. Make a circle for the face, sketch in facial guidelines and then draw a crown like shape for the headdress.

Step 2.

Using the shape guide for the face you can start drawing out the shape of the eagle's face. There should be tufts for the cheeks as well.

Step 3.

Add the "up down" pattern across the band at the base of the headdress and then draw a button on each end like you see here.

Step 4.

Sketch in the shape and structure of the eagle's face and then make the definition for the beak.

Step 5.

Here you will draw in the intense eagle eyes and then add some shading to the eyes as well.

Step 6.

Draw in the bones for each part of the headdress design.

Step 7.

Now you can draw out each feather and take your time with this step because feathers are majestic and so is this spirit eagle. Clean up the drawing too.

Step 8.

You are all done. Now color in the spirit eagle.
