How to Draw Lovebirds


Start with four shapes, two for the heads, and then two for the bodies. Notice how the shapes are drawn close together.


You will tackle this tutorial one bird at a time. Start with the bird to the left by sketching out the shape of the head, and the clawed shape of the beak.


Now you will add an eye which is round in shape, and then color in the pupil. Next, draw in a chubby cheek, and then finish drawing out the beak by drawing a jagged line to the face of the bird. Next, move to step four.


You can start sketching out the lovebird to the right and as you can see the head is blended in with the other bird because they are in love. Draw the closed eye, and then draw in the beak and cheek line like so.


Here you will start sketching out the body starting with the back line and wing. When that is done, draw the chest and stomach like so, and then proceed to step six.


Okay, sketch out the lovebird's body which is only the thighs because the wings are hidden behind the bids body.


Look how far you have already come. What you need to do now is sketch out their feet and nails, and then draw out the beginning parts of the branch that they are sitting on.


Draw out more of the tree branch, and notice how I make the branch to look wavy and full of character. Next, draw a nice bloom on the branch, and move to step nine which is also your last drawing step.


Lastly, sketch out the tails and add in all the detailing to the feathers until you have a nicely drawn pair of lovebirds like you see here. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.


Here is what the lovebirds look like when you are all done. Now you can have even more fun coloring them in using some lime green and pink shades.

Description: I'm back everyone, and with my return I bring easy and fun tutorials for your enjoyment and for your education. To start, I will be teaching you "how to draw lovebirds", step by step. Like a lot of the tutorials on this site, there are single animal submissions, and I do have a single lovebird lesson that is also very colorful and informative. The difference between the two tutorials is, one has just a single bird, and this newer version has two lovebirds. I wanted to really capture the essence of how this breed of bird is thought to be. As you can see they are cuddling on one another as they show affection and, well, love. I drew them sitting on a branch, and out of the two, the lovebird with it's head smeared up against the others is my favorite. I really liked how I drew the lovebirds, and I also made sure that the tutorial itself is going to be easy to follow and understand. Once you are done with this lesson, I'm pretty sure you will be drawing a lot more birds that have a cuteness about them that is undeniable. Well I guess that's it folks, be sure to have fun learning "how to draw lovebirds". You can even draw in your very own background to your liking. Maybe even an Easter background. I'll be back peeps so stay tuned in. Peace out!
