How to draw a parakeet

Step 1

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

Step 2

Draw the bird’s neck, body and the perch. Add a guideline for its tail.

Step 3

Define places for the legs, feet, wings and mouth of the parakeet.

Step 4

Mark off shapes for the legs, feet, wings and beak.

Step 5

Detail the shape of the wing. Add the eye, toes and tail of the bird.

Step 6

Outline the shapes of the feathers and claws. Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 7

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