How to Simply Draw A Bird

Step 1:  The graphite sketching pencils are offered in different grades. The 2B and the B are the hardest of the soft category, whereas 8B is super soft. Ideal for shading, dark tones. Jennie recommends paper above 100gsm for this tutorial.  

Step 2: Start with a 4B pencil, to map out the areas of the bird. Tip: to draw the wigs, imagine an upside-down egg shape.

Step 3: Use a 6B to make the outline stronger. And with a B, using the pencil quite hard to make even stronger lines. Tip: draw everything that is around the eyes and the beak for more consistency!

Step 4:  Draw the feathers using an 8B pencil. Tip: always keep some white in the eyes for more realistic results.

Step 5:  Use the rubber to tidy a bit your drawing.

Step 6: Go back to the B, the hardest pencil, and start to add the details of the feet of the bird.

Step 7: Add some shadows to give gravity and weight to the bird.

Step 8:  Know when to stop, when it looks finish, do not do more. You can also use the pencils on the side for light effects.

Step 9: Finally, use the blending stick to add some gradient on the edges of your bird.
