How to draw a bird

Step 1

First, draw a large oval shape to create the head. Don't forget to illustrate the hair on top of the head. You can do so using three simple triangles. Make sure that they are not too similar and change the width and sizes.

Step 2

The eyes are drawn using large circular shapes. These huge eyes are perfect to give more personality to the cartoon character. The body is made from a small oval shape. Notice how the head is bigger. It should help us create a more adorable illustration! :)
