how to draw a Mockingbird step-by-step

For sketching a bird's head, use curved lines to create a pointed beak and indicate feather texture with short overlapping lines.

Use long, curved lines to continue the form from the base of the neck. Draw the bird's back and chest.

Create the mockingbird's upper wing with a long curved line followed by overlapping "U" shaped feathers.

Utilize curving and overlapping lines, including "U" shapes, to form the extended and doubled back wing tip.

Create the bird's tail by adding a long, curved line that connects to the wing with "U" shaped lines and textured with curved lines.

Sketch the mockingbird's leg with curved lines and "U" shaped lines for the toes, noting spacing changes.

Outline the leg and wing with a curved line, then draw the other leg with curved lines.

Draw a small circle with a shaded circle inside for the mockingbird's eye, and use short lines for feather textures.

Create a perching branch using curved lines and a crooked "V" shape for twigs.
