Learn how to illustrate a lovely turkey clip art made from basic shapes using this simple step-by-step drawing tutorial. I will show you how to create this character using a simple template made from short and long curved lines. Adding a large tail and a snood is required to make sure this cute animal remains easily recognizable. Are you ready to draw? Excellent! Let's proceed with the first step of this drawing tutorial ...
First, let's create the head and body using a simple shape. As you can see below, this one is made from simple curved lines with pointed ends. If possible, you can make the bottom of the shape slightly larger than the top.
Next, you can sketch the arms of the cartoon turkey using short curved lines. Legs are also made using the same technique. You can draw both arms slightly raised for a more adorable posture.
It's now time to create the facial features of the animal. This is the most important step since the head is the first place we are usually looking at. You can start with the creation of the eyes using large circular shapes.
Both pupils are made from small dots. Above the eyes, you can draw the eyebrows using short lines. Then, create the beak using two small triangles also made from curved lines.
The tail of this cartoon turkey should be made from long and impressive rectangles. Don't hesitate to make this part of the character large and wide.
Inside the tail, draw a few lines to create a basic pattern. Next, draw a snood under the beak using two simple curved lines. Good work! We are now ready for the final step ... adding plain colors.
It's now time to convert a cute black and white cartoon illustration into a colorful one. You will need a few brown colors as well as a touch of red and orange. This is it! This turkey clip art is now completed!
