Owls are known for their intelligence, wisdom, and, of course, their beauty. Looking for a way to pay your respect to these magnificent creatures? Then read on to learn everything you need to know about bringing them to life through the power of drawing!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by using a red pen to add two circles to the top of your page.
Then use the red pen to add a frilly “ring” around these – these will be the eyes of your owl!
Add a small “crescent moon” shape inside each of the eyes…
And then use a brown pen to draw two curved lines descending from the bottom, curving in towards one another.
Turn these lines into more crescent moon shapes by adding curves to the sides.
Now, use a brown pen to add a series of “bumps” inside the shapes, and then fill in the space around these.
Grab a yellow pen, and add loops to the crescent moons in the eyes…
And then add smaller “wave” shapes with a black pen, inside these loops.
Now, add a series of long strokes to the eyes for lashes.
Grab a pink pen, and draw a curved line to connect the two brown sections.
Now, use the pink pen to add a curved section to the head, complete with spiraling “points”. Fill in the left-hand side with the pink.
Use a yellow to add a small, triangular beak in between the eyes…
And then use a pink pencil to fill in the head.
Now, use a light brown pen to add a circle to the space between the wings, and fill this in with the brown.
Take a black fineliner pen, and add three small “bumps” to the bottom of the body, with three claws emerging from this.
Use an orange pen to fill in the toes…
And then use a brown pen to draw a long, thin branch beneath the talons.
Switch to a pink pen, and add a small “leaf” shape to the right of the branch.
Use the brown pen to fill in the end of the branch completely…
And then use the pink pen to add a series of “chevron” shapes to the belly for feathers.
And there we have it – an adorable wise owl, just waiting to impart its knowledge and advice. What could be better than that?
