How to Draw Penguins for Kids

Artist: Dawn / November 6, 2011

Step 1.

Make two circles one for each penguin you will draw. As you see here I will only be making two penguins and also as you see here, one is larger than the other. Add the facial guides and proceed to step two.

Step 2.

Using the face guides, make the one eye like so, and then draw in the cone shaped penguin nose. Be sure to add a mouth line that separates the top from the bottom of the beak or bill.

Step 3.

Draw the entire shape of the penguins body and then draw in the small simple looking wing.

Step 4.

Make another wing and then draw the tree toed feet, as well as the small belly arch.

Step 5.

The second penguin is even cuter to draw because it is a pint sized one. Draw out the head, wings, and then draw in the eyes and simple small coned shape beak.

Step 6.

The last thing to do is draw out the rest of the baby penguins body as well as the feet. Clean up the drawing so you have a nice clean sketch to color in.

Step 7.

And here is your drawing when you are all done. Color them in and be on your way to another fun lesson.

Description: Well guys, yesterday was such a cozy night because I had the woodstove burning as I watched Transformers 3 on Blu-Ray. To me the movie stunk, but my twelve year old brother liked it a lot and I think it’s mainly because there is a lot of action involved. Anyways, I am going to start the day off with a super simple and super adorable tutorial on "how to draw penguins for kids", step by step. I noticed that more and more people are asking me for penguin related stuff and since I too am a fan of penguins, I love making lessons based on these animals. The lesson itself is super easy to follow and replicate so I have no doubt that whoever tackles this tutorial, they will finish it in no time at all. So go ahead and have some good fun as you begin your adventure to drawing penguins for kids. Peace people and enjoy!
