Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Turkey
Place a teardrop shape on the top of your oval. Make sure to add a curve to the bottom, this will create the illusion it is emerging from the oval.
Place another oval on your teardrop shape, this one overlapping the left eye. This will give a feeling of depth to the eyes.
Once again, you will add another teardrop shape on the beak. Make this shape slightly more curvy, this will add some weight to the snood of your turkey.
Create some ridges on the edge of your shape, this will help create a more natural looking wing. Remember to erase excessive stray lines.
Place another bullet shape from the top of your owls body, to the back. Make sure to follow the curve of the body as you do so.
Add more blade shapes just within your bullet shape. Each shape should vary in size, this will give the illusion that the feathers are overlapping.
Draw your pupils over each of your eyes. Each pupil should be an oval shape with a notch in it. This will give the illusion of a glare.
