How To Draw A Turkey Clipart

Step 1

You can begin this tutorial with the creation of the body and head using a single rectangular shape made from a thick outline. Then, you can draw the eyes using large circles as shown in the illustration below. Finally, you can add small pupils using another set of circular shapes. Once you are finished, you can proceed with the next step.

Step 2

This is the most challenging step since the beak of the animal is involved. This beak is done with a small oval shape drawn with pointed edges on top and bottom. A small curved line must be inserted inside this shape to complete the beak. Below the beak, you can sketch a wattle using a small oval shape.

Step 3

Great! Continue working on this fun turkey by adding a large tail made from a rectangle. The bottom of the rectangle must be narrower. A simple line can be sketched on top of the shape. The wings are done from pointed lines and are added near the bottom of the character. Complete this step with the addition of both feet made from curved lines.

Step 4

It's now time to add colors! The body of the animal can be filled with a bright brown color. The tail can be darker on the bottom and brighter on top. The pupils are also darker while the beak and the feet are filled with a bright orange color. Finally, the wattle can be colored in red.
