If there is one place that flamingos are almost guaranteed to be happy, it is standing in cool, fresh water – and this is a wonderful sight to behold. Want to see for yourself? Then let’s take a closer look!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen and a ruler, and add a square to the page.
Use a thinner black pen to add a point to the top left corner of the square, with a line at the side.
Use a curved line to cut off the tip of the shape, and add a curved line above this – this will be the beak.
Bring a line across to the right, and then add a curved “L” shape below.
Bring a line up from the top of the beak, and take this across, down, and then across to the right.
Bring a line across from the left, leaving a small gap in the bottom.
Add a small circle behind the beak, and add a dot inside this.
In the gap at the bottom, add three small points, and then another shape to the right. Add a curved wing inside the body.
Bring two parallel lines down from the bottom, and add an oval shape to the bottom of this.
Now, add two diagonal lines coming across from this, ending in a small circle. Connect this to the bottom of the body with two diagonal lines.
Add a long, thin rectangle to the bottom of the oval on the straight leg, and then add a foot to the end of the angled leg.
Add an oval to the bottom of the feet, add a smaller oval inside this, and then add curved lines on either side.
Use a thicker pen and a ruler to add a horizontal line to the bottom third of the square.
Add color to the tip of the beak with the black pen…
And then use a yellow pen for the beak and the legs.
Use a pink pen to shade the main body of the flamingo.
Then, a dark blue pen for the bottom section of the square…
And a bright blue for the top section.
And voila – that is one relaxed flamingo, just enjoying his day. This is a dude we can all learn a valuable lesson from!
