How to Draw A Cartoon Flamingo

This simple tutorial will help you learn to draw a cartoon flamingo! Did you know that the reason some flamingos are pink is only because they are eating some healthy bacterias through their food supplies? 

However, that might not explain why they stand on one leg! But with these two characteristics alone, it's really easy to recognize a flamingo from a turkey! Let's try to draw a nice flamingo in this new and easy tutorial!

Step 1

How to draw a cartoon flamingo

Like most characters, you should start your artwork by sketching the head of your flamingo. First, draw a nice oval shape to form the head. This shape should be thin and slightly leaning towards the ground. Next, add to circles to illustrate the eyes. The one on the left should be behind the head and the right eye.

Now let's work on the beak. The top of the beak should be round and medium in size. When this shape is drawn, just add a small triangle under it to represent the tip of the beak.

Step 3

Move on to the body of your flamingo. Just sketch a nice a long oval shape to create the body. When you are finished, add two rectangles to form the neck of your character. The head, the neck and the body of your flamingo should look like a "z" right now.

Step 4

Since flamingos are standing on one leg most of the time, sketch one leg standing and another one up in the air. For the one standing on the ground, just sketch a long and thin rectangle. Add another one on the bottom to illustrate the feet. For the leg that is up in the air, draw it using three rectangles like shown above.

Step 5

Now it's time to convert these basic shapes into a recognizable animal! Work on the outline of your flamingo. You can add some feathers on the top of the head and on the tip of the wing. Also, make sure that the neck is curved and delicate.

Step 6

The beak of the flamingo is not quite the same as most birds. You can observe two different colors on it. That's why you must draw a line in the middle to separate these two parts. You can also draw the pupils of your character.

Step 7

When you are done, work on the outline of the legs of your flamingo. You can draw a thin line near the bottom of the wing to create this one.

Step 8
