How to Draw Pedro and Nico


You will be drawing two birds together which means you have to do double the work. Start by drawing out the shapes for their heads, and their bodies like so. Next, draw in the guidelines for the face, and body.


Let's draw Pedro first since he is the biggest. Start by sketching out the shape of the head, and then draw in the crown head feathers.


Here you will start drawing out his brows which are frowned downward, and then draw in his eyes. As you can see the left eye is squinted, and the right eye is wide open. Next, draw in his beak like so.


Finish drawing in his beak, and then move to step five. See how simple that was.


The only thing you have to do here is draw out the round shape of the circular body, and then move to step six.


Sketch out short stubby wings, and be sure to sketch in the ruffled ends of the wings. The tips of Pedro's wings also act as fingers or hands. Next, draw out the legs and feet like so, and then move to step seven.


Now let's start drawing out Pedro's best buddy, Nico. Begin by making the shape of his head, and then the other shape for the bottle cap that he wears on his head as a hat.


Starting at the bottom of Nico's face shape, begin drawing out the wings. The left wing is spread out or expanded, and the right wing is in a pose holding his hat. Small ruffle feathers should line the bottom of the wings as well.


Now I want you guys to start drawing out Nico's face starting with the eyes. Once the eyes shapes and eyeballs, and pupils are drawn in, you can then draw in this canary's beak in full detail.


Nico is a very small bird which means you will be drawing a very small petite body. Finish sketching out the wings like so, and then draw out the stomach, and tail. You will also need to sketch in his small thigh as well.


AS you can see this step is going to finish Nico's body off. All you need to do now is draw out his legs, and then draw out his small bird feet. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one to clean up these two birds.


Finally, add some detailing to that bottle cap that he wears so proudly on his head. Just draw a rim, and then some dimples for the crinkled edging of the cap.


Here is what the drawing looks like when you are all done. Now you have just drawn the last two characters from the movie Rio which is coming your way soon. I hope you had fun drawing Pedro and Nico.

Pedro is the woodpecker which is also the chubby or very round bird, and Nico is the yellow canary. These two birds are simply the best together. They both help Blu when he gets to Rio. They are sort of like a comedy duo. Nico is commonly seen wearing a green colored bottle cap on his head, and Pedro is just a friendly bird that has a lot of personality.
