how to draw a Toucan step-by-step

Begin sketching the toucan's head using a series of curved lines to form the top of the head and the cheek.

Use pairs of curved lines that meet at points on each end to form the crescent-shaped feathers on top of the head.

Draw a curved line from the front of the head to the cheek, forming a beak, and divide it with another curved line.

Draw a curved line in the middle of the head and enclose a circular eye, adding shading and an eyebrow.

Use a series of overlapping curved lines to outline the toucan's feathered chest.

Enclose head with a large "U", add smaller "U's" for upper wing, sketch long flight feathers, connect to head to form neck.

Use a series of overlapping curved lines to sketch the bird's perching toes and feet.

Use curved lines to draw a tree branch, smaller twig, veins of leaves, and wood texture.

Draw several overlapping, "U" shaped lines below the tree branch to form the bird's tail.
