How to Draw A Chicken

It's not for dinner! Instead, let's learn how to draw a chicken using a nice (and original) cartoon design! If you are not familiar with the steps required to sketch a cartoon chicken like this one, then please feel free to try this tutorial. It's simple, based on a cute character and easy to complete even if you don't have much drawing experience. 

Below is the chicken with colors. I won't work on this aspect (colors), but you can always use advanced tutorials from this site to learn how to apply nice effects on this illustration. This character is similar to some birds from the same series, but there are a few major differences that you should be aware of. Let's draw! 

How to draw a chicken

Step 1

To create the head of the chicken, you need to draw a large oval shape. Notice how the top is slightly pointed and the bottom of the shape more flat (it's not obvious, but you should see it if you look closely). The body is also made of an oval shape, but this one must be smaller (much more smaller). That's the secret of creating an adorable version of a chicken!

Step 2

Yes, the eyes are still made from large circular shapes. These eyes are taking most of the space available on the face. Leave a small space on top to illustrate the forehead. The beak is created from a small triangle. Make it pointed and delicate.

Step 3

Wings are also small and created from curved lines. The ends are pointed and soft. The tail of this chicken is made from a small circle. Make it as round as possible. Great! Let's move on to the next step.

Step 4

The feet are mostly made of straight lines. Make sure that they are small, but still easy to read. Since our goal is to create a cute chicken, adding large legs would not be relevant (and the character could look like a flamingo, which is not what we are looking for!).

Step 5

The comb is illustrated with three small oval shapes drawn together. In this case, I made sure that these shapes were facing the left side of the image to create a dynamic result. Pupils can be sketch from large circles.

Step 6

Looks like this is it for this lesson on how to draw a chicken. This is the simplest version you can try. Removing a single detail would not make this character recognizable. Of course, you can also draw a more complex version if you feel like it.
