How to Draw Articuno

Artist: Dawn / June 26, 2010

Step 1.

Since you will be drawing a bird, you have to start with a circle for the head, and then draw a neck line. From the neck line, draw in a egg shape which will be for the body. After that, add the long wing lines, leg lines, and the tail stream.

Step 2.

Begin adding some shape to the wings like so, and then draw out the shape of the birds head, beak, neck, and some of the feathery chest.

Step 3.

Continue to sketch out the wings like you see here, and be sure to cap the edging with feather curls. Once that is done you can draw some of the back part of this Pokemon bird species.

Step 4.

You will now need to draw in the head crest which is made up of three feather like pieces which form the shape of a birds footprint, and after that detail the beak, and draw in the eyes. Next, sketch in some more feather lining on the belly, and then   

Step 5.

For your last drawing step, all you have to do is draw out the long thick stream like tail as you see here. When that is done, you can draw out the legs, and claws. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

Here is how your ice bird looks when you are done. All you have to do is color in this Pokemon, and you just finished drawing Articuno, step by step. I bet you did a great job huh?

Description: I was going to upload this character yesterday but I left my desk, and I never came back. So today, I will be submitting that very same lesson that I was supposed to put up yesterday which is going to be on “how to draw Articuno", step by step. This is another Pokemon character that is an ice/flying type, and falls in the Freeze Pokemon species category. This bird creature looks very much like an eagle of some sorts, mixed with a tropical style bird because of the long, one piece feathery tail. Articuno is also one of the three legendary birds of Kanto along with Zapdos, and Moltres, which makes this Pokemon species special. As for it's body design, you could say that Articuno is an enormous bird, that has blue colored feathers and or body. The darkest hue of blue is on its head, and tail. The lightest parts of blue exist on the chest and belly as you can see by the tutorial pictures thumbnail. What I like most about bird type species is that they are incredibly bold looking, and brave. Some of the abilities that Articuno possesses is the ability to chill or cool things down just by flapping its wings. It can also turn the moisture in the air into snow using the wings, and there is also some other abilities that this Legendary bird can do. Now, Pokemon are trained to battle right? Well, Articuno is one of those species that doesn't like to fight because it is used to living it's life high up in the mountains where they stay away from civilization. One thing that this bird does that is awesome, is fly. When Articunos take flight, it's one of the most amazing things a trainer can experience. No matter which way you look at it, learning "how to draw Articuno" is going to be swift, easy, and exciting. I will be back later with more drawing fun. The day is young, and all the artist here are talented even if you fall in the novice category. Have fun peeps, and make sure you come back to see what else I have in store. Adios!
