The first thing you will need to do is draw out the egg shape for the eagle's head guide. When that is done sketch in the one facial guideline.


Using the guide you just made, sketch out the shape of the eagle's beak. Notice how you will have to draw the tip of the beak in a hook like fashion. Add the nostril hole as well.


Next, draw out the shape of the piercing eagle eye, then add some shading around the actual eye shape. Also color in the pupil too.


You will now begin drawing the tribal pattern. Start with the feathery sharp strokes, then draw the spiked bottom collar of the bird's neck.


The edge lining for the shape of the tribal eagle's head should be like a saw blade. The pointed tips should be uniform when drawn in.


For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw the layers of feathers on the surface of the eagle's neck and or head. Once that is done you can erase any mistakes you have made.


Here is the finished sketch when you are all done. Now you can color in the drawing like I did, or leave it as a black and white image.

Description: Hey folks, I am here with other lessons that I think you will all enjoy. To start things off I will be showing you "how to draw a tribal eagle", step by step. Drawing tribal art can go either two ways, easy or hard. If you are the type of person that likes to draw some pretty detailed tribal art, then you might not like this lesson because it's pretty simple. The eagle that you will be making is going to be drawn from the side view or profile view. The tribal lining is going to be easier to recreate and follow because I made sure that it was a lesson that most people would be able to tackle. Whenever I draw eagles I like to keep it simple because these birds have so much natural detail, that sketching them out can be so very time consuming. Anyways, have fun drawing a tribal eagle folks and I will be back with more for ya'll.
