How to Sketch a Chicken

Step 1.


Start the first step by sketching out the guidelines and shapes which will help you with the sketch of your chicken.

Step 2.


Now you can begin sketching out the beak first in a very soft, contoured style. Draw the bridge of the crown which is also known to be the forehead. Add the nostril with some shading for detail as well.

Step 3.


Next, begin sketching out the chickens waddle. This is a hen which means she will not have the oversized waddle that roosters have. You will begin detailing the small soft feathers that grow in this area of the chicken or hen.

Step 4.


Sketch out the shape of the chicken's head and some of the neck. The lining should be sketched in a layered feathery style.

Step 5.


Maybe their eyes are shaped like eggs because chickens lay eggs. In any case draw in the eye shape like so.

Step 6.


You will lastly draw the lid which surrounds the entire eye. Color in the pupil, then erase those guidelines you made as well as the mistakes you may have made.

Step 7.


Here is the finished drawing, now you can begin sketching in your shading starting with inside the eye.

Step 8.


This is the final sketched results when I finished. It will be different texture for those of you who are sketching your chicken on paper using a sketch pencil. Mines was sketched digitally.

Description: Drawing birds is probably one of my favorite animals to draw and I think it's because they remind me of feathered reptiles. Today I played around and made a quick drawing of a sketched chicken. Having said that, we will learn how to sketch a chicken, step by step. Of course the shading won't be described in these type of steps, I am actually working on the sketch steps right after I finish this description text for this lesson on sketching a chicken. For those of you who like sketched drawings of animals, I think you will like this tut. Adios folks and have fun.
