Drawing a parrot can be an exciting and rewarding experience for the beginner artist.
Whether you are looking to create a realistic representation of this beautiful bird, or just something fun and whimsical, there is no need to be intimidated.
With patience and practice, anyone can learn how to draw a parrot! This step-by-step guide will provide clear instructions on how to draw a parrot in simple shapes with easy-to-follow steps.
By following each step carefully and paying close attention to the details given, you’ll soon have your own vibrant drawing of this beautiful creature.
Let’s get started!
Step 1: Sketching The ShapeStart by sketching out the basic shape of the parrot using light pencil strokes.
This will help you map out where all its features should go later on in the drawing process.
Start from its head at the top and work down towards its tail feathers at the bottom – remember that it has two wings jutting outwards from either side too! You may also want to lightly indicate any defining markings like stripes or spots here as well before moving onto outlining them more precisely in later steps.
Step 2: Outlining The Body And FeathersNow that you’ve marked out where everything should go, use bolder lines when tracing around your original shape while adding more detail into it as well – such as defining its wingspan even further or adding shading along certain areas like its cheeks or chest feathers if desired (though not necessary).
Finally don’t forget those signature tail feathers which tend to curve upwards slightly – they’ll really bring life into your drawing!
