When it comes to farmyard creatures, no picture would be complete without a super cute hen clucking around, pecking at loose grain. Looking to add a twist to this idyllic scene? Then you are in the right place…
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by taking a black pen, and drawing a large “n” shape in the right-hand section of your page.
Bring a triangle shape out to the right, and then add another, slightly curved, triangle to the bottom of this.
Inside this second triangle, add a curved line along the edge, and then make a small mark to the right of this.
Close off the end of the top triangle with a slightly curved line.
Now, add a mark to the left of this to create the bottom of an eye…
And then add a horseshoe shape above this. Inside this shape, add a small circle, and fill this in almost completely with the black pen, leaving a small white dot to the right of this. Then add a short mark to the left of this, and add another two marks to the right, on the outside of the “n”.
Add another few marks to the top of this for lashes…
Add a curved line above the eye.
Add three large bumps to the top of the head…
And then add a tuft to the left of the face with long, jagged points.
Now, bring a curved line down from just behind the beak, adding jagged tufts as you go. Bring the line down and across to the end, ending with a curved line. At the end of this, add four “points” to create another tuft.
Add a second tuft just in front of the first…
And then add two spiky feet, emerging from the bottom of each of these tufts. Add two short, angled marks to the center of each leg.
Next, bring a curved line up from the left side of the back tuft…
And then bring another line across towards the top left-hand corner of the page. At the end of this, add a bumpy line.
Now, add a series of points making their way to the top of the page, curving up and across. Next, add four long, pointed sections behind this tail.
Bring a curved line down from the bottom of this, and add a wide “reverse C” shape, ending with a series of “fingers” to create a wing. Connect this to the bottom of the face with a short curved line.
Now, add a series of jagged lines to the right of this to create more feathers…
And add a small circle just below the eye.
Use a red pen for the section on top of the head…
And an orange pen to add color to the beak.
Now, use a yellow pen for the feet…
And a pink pen for the inside of the mouth, and the spots of color on the cheeks.
Grab a blue pen, and add color to the body, legs, and tail…
And then use a cyan pen for the back of the tail, the wing, and the head.
And voila – a super cute chicken – with a totally unique twist!
