How to draw a white cockatoo
In this tutorial we will draw a white cockatoo, which is also known as umbrella cockatoo.
1) Draw a rectangle that will define the conditional proportions and boundaries of the chosen drawing.
2) From the middle of the rectangle, draw one vertical and one horizontal line equally dividing the shape.
3) Draw another horizontal line equally dividing the upper half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a horizontal line equally dividing the bottom half of the rectangle.
4) Draw a vertical line equally dividing the left half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a vertical line equally dividing the right half of the rectangle.
Mark off the width and height of the white cockatoo. 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. Outline the branch.
Sketch the white cockatoo’s body, neck and the branch. Draw a guideline for the bird’s tail.
Define places for the legs and mouth.
Add the cockatoo’s beak, legs and tail.
