How to Draw Ho-Oh

Artist: Dawn / June 12, 2010

Step 1.

Start by drawing a few shapes and lines to make a frame for your Pokemon character drawing. As you can see the wings lines are arched.

Step 2.

Begin drawing in the beak, and then draw the start of the chest.

Step 3.

Draw the beak separation line, and then draw out the big dark eye like you see here. Next, draw in the stiff tongue, and then draw the curled looking crown on top of the birds head.

Step 4.

Draw in a small beady eyeball, and then continue to draw out the back of the head, and then the back itself. Next, start sketching out the first part of Ho-Oh's wings like you see here, and then add a bit of detailing to them.

Step 5.

Draw in the rest of the wing feathers, and then draw the beginning of the birds thighs. Once that is done you can move to the next step.

Step 6.

Now it's time to finish up this drawing on Ho-Oh. What you will need to do first is draw out the legs and claws, and then draw the tail feathers which looks like a cross between a turkey and a peacock. Erase all the lines and shapes that you drew in    

Step 7.

This is what the drawing looks like when you are done. All you need to do now is color it in, and that it. You just learned how to draw Ho-Oh, step by step.

Description: OMG, did you guys see that awesome lesson that Piecu submitted today? It's freaking awesome. I think that he did a wicked clean drawing on chibi Kisame. As a matter of fact, I think Piecu should draw and submit more lessons so that everyone can benefit from his skills. Anyway, let me move on to what I'm going to upload as my first tutorial which is going to be on “how to draw Ho-Oh", step by step. I know I said that I wasn't going to do anymore Pokemon character tutorials, but I figured, what the heck might as well. This is a character that was requested by a member the other day, and today I will be teaching you guys how easy it's going to be to draw Ho-Oh. This Pokemon species is a fire/flying type. The head, neck, and top half of Ho-Oh's body and feathers is colored red, and then the rest of the torso is white. The ends of the wing's feathers are a minty green color, and the tail and crown is yellow or gold. What I like about the Ho-Oh species is how they look very much like the phoenix bird. Their majestic stature and bold personalities makes this Pokemon species one to really hold onto. Even though there is not much to say about the Ho-Oh's personality, I can tell you that this species is the official mascot of Pokemon Gold. The lesson shouldn't be too complex to tackle, and the end results should come out looking awesome. In general, if you are going to try and draw Ho-Oh using this tutorial, I'm almost certain that you will have a blast. I have to jet away from this submission because I still have two more to upload for now. When you are done, you can color in this creature using a variety of rainbow shades. I will be back in a bit with more drawing fun so try and stay tuned in. Adios amigos.
