how to draw a Blue Jay step-by-step

Begin by drawing a circle. This will help you to form the bird's head.

Extend curved lines downward from each side of the circle. This forms the bird's neck.

Sketch the triangular beak with curved lines, overlapping the original circle and adding a center line.

Create a feathered crest by drawing a curved line from the top of the head to the back using short, overlapping lines.

Use a series of curved lines to sketch the wing just below the neck. Note how the lines converge at a soft point at the tip.

Erase the guide lines left by the original circle.

Sketch the belly and texture the legs with short lines, noting the two protuberances near the tail.

Draw a detailed blue jay with plumage, three circles for the eye, lines for patches and neck, and textures for wings, tail, and belly.

Band the tail with curved lines. Use additional curved lines to outline the feet and tree branch.
