How to Draw a Tribal Parrot

Artist: Dawn / January 18, 2014

Step 1.

You will sketch the outline for your parrot like so. This only includes the shape for the head, body and tail.

Step 2.

Define the shape of the head like so, then draw some of the back lining along with the arch of the bird's wing.

Step 3.

Next, draw the beak and make sure it us not attached to the birds face. This beak is in tribal form. You will then continue on with the face and sketch out the outline for the eye. Color in an eyeball, then add some spots on the bridge of the parrots   

Step 4.

The next shapes you will draw are all separated from one another. Make the first shape the largest, and as you can see it resembles a large teardrop. Starting from under the wing, add the small sections of wing pieces until the point is formed.

Step 5.

You will do the same exact thing on the opposite side of the bird's body which is the other wing. Tribal patterns should stay the same folks.

Step 6.

Begin drawing the parrot's thigh and then draw the talon or claw.

Step 7.

And finally for the last drawing step you will need to draw out the feathery tail that fans out for added beauty. I love how the tail came out, but you can choose to draw your own tribal tail. Erase the mistakes and guidelines before calling it finis   

Step 8.

Look how pretty the parrot came out in tribal form. You can choose to add some color, or keep it as a black and white drawing.

Description: When it comes to drawing tribal birds there is a lot of species to choose when attempting to turn one into tribal art. Someone asked if I could make a lesson on "how to draw a tribal parrot", step by step so here it is. I know most of you will probably tackle this tut, but for those of you that wanted a lesson on drawing parrots in tribal form, I think you will be pleased with this submission. I chose to go with just some simple black coloring because I know in this style it would look awesome as a tattoo on someones arm, leg, torso or even back. The steps might be a bit challenging because it is tribal art you are drawing. Just keep at it until the art is finished. Peace peeps.
