We all know that penguins are super cute – but did you consider how adorable they look when they dance? Well, let’s take a closer look at just how this looks in just a few short, simple steps – let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by using a black pen to draw a slightly square “u” shape in the center of your page.
Join the sides of the “u” together at the top with another curved line, and then add small oval shapes to the sides for ears.
Add another small half-circle shape to the outside of the ears, and then join these by drawing a large, thick curve at the top – your penguin is wearing headphones!
Bring a curved, horizontal line across on either side. Take this to a point, and then back in towards the center.
Bring a curved line down on the right, angling the end in towards the left, and then add a wavy line to the left.
Add a small foot with three toes to the bottom of the left curve.
Bring a wavy line across from the right of the foot, and connect this to the line on the other side.
Add another set of three wavy toes to the right of the first…
And then add a line halfway down each of the arms, connecting these to the body below.
Now, add a series of musical notes all around the top of the headphones.
Next, add a wide, curved, triangle-like shape in the center of the face.
Add two more thin, curved shapes to the bottom of this.
Draw two small circles at the top of the face for the eyes…
And then add a small “crescent moon” shape inside each of these.
Use your black pen to shade the ears…
And then use an orange pen for the beak, feet, and headphones.
Grab a red pen, and use this to shade the space in the center of the beak.
Now, use a dark gray pen to add a patch of color to the center of the face.
Use the dark gray pen to draw a curved shape in the center of the body, and then add color to the top of the left arm.
Shade the space around the tummy with the gray pen, leaving slight gaps at the edges.
Use a black pen for the section at the bottom of the body…
And then a pink pen to add color to the cheeks.
Grab a gray pencil, and use this to shade the bottom of the wings.
And there we have it – a happy penguin, dancing to his favorite tune – what could be better than that?
