Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Draw two ovals for the head and body of the peregrine falcon. Draw a line, which will act as the center of its head. Sketch a stone, on which the bird sits.

Step 2

Draw the shape of the peregrine falcon’s neck. Add a smooth guideline for its tail.

Step 3

Add lines to define places for the falcon’s legs and eyes. Define its mouth.

Step 4

Sketch the legs and beak of the peregrine falcon.

Step 5

Outline the wings and feet. Pay attention to the shape of the beak.

Step 6

Add the toes, eye, upper beak, tail and wings of the peregrine falcon.

Step 7

Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 8

Contour the peregrine falcon, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the stone. Erase all guidelines.
