This tutorial will help you learn how to draw cute penguins easily. These animals are very easy to recognize with their white and black feathers. They have a white belly (5), black wings (3) and a black beak with an orange-yellow streak (2). They also have tiny black feet (4). Penguins are about 2 to 3 feet tall and they are not able to fly. 

Step 2

The penguin have a small round head. The body is made of a big oval shape. The feet are small and the wings are thin. The beak is narrow and long to help the penguin catch fish. The entire penguin could be drawn using circles except for the beak and the wings. You should use triangles to sketch those parts of the body.

Step 3

Start practicing drawing a penguin by sketching a rectangle for the body. Next, work the outline a little bit by adding a curve to the top. Next, add circles for the eyes. Then, draw the beak and add a circle for the white belly. Complete your artwork by sketching the pupils, the wings and the feet. Add some colors to make your work more pleasant to look at!
