How to draw a FLAMINGO

Learn how to draw this cute FLAMINCO of your very own.


You will need:
- Pencil
- Pen
- Eraser
- Paper
- Colored pencils or crayons
- Ruler (suggested)


Jeff's Tips & Ideas : Use lightly sketched pencil lines first for the structure. After, use a pen to draw in the final lines. When you're finished, erase the underlying pencil lines to reveal your drawing. Then - color it!

 


Let's start! Follow step by step our easy indications below !

 

STEP 1

 

Start out with some simple shapes.  A couple of circles help to bring the head and body into view.  Add some lines to form the neck and legs.

STEP 2

 

Next, if you like... sketch in some simple details - things that help make your drawing look like a flamingo - and not some other kind of bird.  Notice how different the beak is!

STEP 3

 

Begin with the eye (one of them!) - and the beak.

STEP 4

 

Next, start sketching in the rest of the head.  Take note of how the right eye is drawn in last.  Gives the bird a '3D' sort of look... as though it (she's!) tilting her head.  :-)

STEP 5

 

OK.  How's it looking?  Next, go ahead and connect the head to the body by drawing in the 'S-like' neck...

STEP 6

 

The body's easy.  Just use the circle/oval from the first step to help as a guide.  But remember - you don't need to sketch these shapes.  They're only there to help you visualize the drawing as it comes together.

STEP 7

 

Get creative with the wing/tail - feathers! - area.  There are all sorts of neat ways to draw them.

STEP 8

 

And - we've got a complete cartoon flamingo!  Pretty neat... but of course... we still need to color it PINK!  Let's do that now...
