How to draw a belted kingfisher

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the belted kingfisher. Draw two ovals that will help to define places for its head and body. Add a line for the branch.

Step 2

Draw guidelines for the kingfishers’ neck, chest and tail.

Step 3

Define places for the legs and mouth.

Step 4

Mark off shapes for the kingfishers’ wing and beak. Finish with the shape of the tail.

Step 5

Draw the toes, eye and crest of the bird. Work more on the beak, tail, wings and branch.

Step 6

Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 7

Contour the belted kingfisher, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail. Erase all guidelines.
