How to draw a house sparrow

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the house sparrow. Draw two ovals that will help to define the places for its head and body. Draw a line, which will act as the center of its beak. Add lines for the handrail.

Step 2

Draw guidelines for the bird’s neck, body and tail.

Step 3

Define places for the legs, wing and mouth.

Step 4

Mark off the shapes of the legs, wing, tail and beak of the house sparrow.

Step 5

Add the eye and toes of the bird. Detail shapes for the wing and tail.

Step 6

Add the claws and feathers. Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 7

Contour the house sparrow, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
