If there is one thing that makes ducks super happy it is the chance to enjoy fresh, clean water in their very own pond – and we couldn’t bear to disappoint them, so read on for all you need to know to bring this scene to life!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a small beak shape in the left of your page.
Bring a curved line across from the top of the beak, and take this down, curving it back across slightly.
Add a curved line emerging from the bottom of the beak, and then add a small circle just behind the beak for the eye.
From the small line, bring a line down in a curve, and then take it across to the left, waving this slightly.
Take the line up towards the top left-hand corner of your page, and end this with three spiky shapes.
add a curved wing to the end of the top line, and add three feathery points to the end of this.
Connect the tail at the end to this wing, and then add another layer of feathers.
Now, add bumpy lines along the wing for more feathers…
And add a curved line to the neck, with another bumpy line below this.
Use the black pen to add another small beak, this time to the left of the duck, and at the bottom of her body.
Create the outline of a baby duckling using the black pen, and add a wavy line to the bottom of the body. Leave a small gap in the top of the head.
Add a tuft of hair to the gap at the top, and then a small wing for the body. Follow this with a small circle for the eye.
Add another duckling just above the first, this time pointing the wing up slightly.
Add another duckling to the back of the group – this time add another wing to the right side.
Grab an orange pen, and shade the wings of the ducklings, and the beaks of the ducklings and the mother duck.
Use a yellow pen for the bodies of the ducklings.
Grab a green pen, and shade the end of the tailfeathers on the large duck, as well as the head and neck.
Use a brown pen to add color to her wing…
And then a khaki color to shade the rest of her body, leaving a small gap at the bottom of the neck.
Grab a brown pen and shade the bottom of the body, curving this up the chest.
Use a light brown pen to shade the white gap on the neck…
Use a blue pen to add a large puddle shape around the outside of the ducks and ducklings…
And then add a series of wavy shapes under ducks, and across the width of the puddle.
Use the blue pen to shade the puddle, leaving the wavy sections white.
Use a light blue pen to shade the wavy sections.
And there we have it – your very own family of ducks off on a watery adventure. But where will their curiosity take them? That part is up to you!
