Crows can have something of a bad reputation for bad luck, death, and associations with evil – but they can actually be smart, mysterious, and cute creatures – and we can prove it in just a few simple steps!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and add a curved line to the left of your page. Add a bump, then bring the line across and wave it downwards. Add a small circle inside the bump.
Bring a line up from the bottom of this, and then connect this to a line from the bottom left. Add a small bump to the right side for the beak and mouth of your bird.
Bring a “bump” up from the top of this, and take this line across to the right.
Add a small circle below the bump for an eye, add a small dot inside this, and then add a curve to the top for a brow.
Bring a line across from the right of the beak, and add a curved “U” shape to the end of this.
Add a small foot to the space in front of this U shape…
And follow this with another for behind, at the bottom of the “U” shape.
Add a series of small lines across the length and claws of the feet.
Bring a curved line across to the left…
And then add a large wing to the top, with feathers making their way down across the length of this.
Add another, longer set of wings to the back…
And then add a set of tailfeathers pointing to the bottom right-hand corner of the page.
Bring another wing up at the back, to the left of those you have drawn at the top.
Add another, longer layer to the back of these…
And then use a gray pen to shade the bottom of each of these feathers, as well as those on the tail, and at the bottom of the body.
Shade the main area of the body with a light gray pen.
Use the darker gray for the main section of the beak.
Shade the top of the mouth with a red pen.
Use a pink pen for the bottom of the mouth.
Finally, use a gray pencil to add small detail to the eye.
And there we have it – your own friendly looking crow, just looking for a friend; but can you oblige?
