How to draw a geometric owl step 1

Start with a black liner and a ruler, draw a diagonal line, end in just above the bottom of your page. At the end of this line, draw a small lightning bolt shape.

Using the black liner and ruler, add another lightning bolt shape to the top of the line. From the top of this, draw another line, this time heading up towards the top right hand corner of the page, and follow this with another short line at a 45 degree angle, a straight line above this, and another 45 degree line above this one.

Use the black liner to add a curved line to the top of this final line, curving up and over.

Grab the ruler, and use this to complete the shape by drawing a line heading downwards, before angling slightly in, heading down, and angling in to join the lightning bolt at the bottom. This is the outline of your owl.

Now, add legs to the bottom of the shape, using the ruler to bring the lines in at 45 degree angle, before angling back down at 45 degree angle, ending at the bottom of the page.

Use the tools to connect the two lines in a claw shape at the bottom.

Now, add a “wonky triangle” point behind the first leg, angling down towards the left hand corner of the page. This will be the second claw of your owl.

Now, use the black liner and ruler to divide the legs and claws into triangles.

Return to the top of the owl, and use the black liner and ruler to create a geometric heart shape for the face.

Just inside the face draw another small triangle shape; this will be the beak of the owl.


11.

Next, divide the heart-shaped face into three sections, and add a small square on either side.


13.

Use a black pen to fill in the triangle at the bottom of the beak, as well as the two squares on either side.

Next, use the ruler and black liner to divide the rest of the face and the head into triangles.


15.

Repeat this process by dividing the remainder of the body into triangles using the ruler.


16.

Take a gray pencil, and carefully shade in the triangles of the face.


17.

Grab a brown pen, and carefully fill in the triangles around the outside of the head. Then, fill in the triangle in the bottom right hand side of the body, the one just above this, and the three triangles to the right of this, as well as the one just above.


18.

Use a blue pen to fill in the triangle in the middle of the brown ones, and those along the bottom edge. Add blue to the tips of the claws, and to the triangles along the back of the owl.


19.

Finally, take a gray pencil, and use this to fill in the remaining triangles.


And just like that, you have created your own stunning, stylish geometric owl! Why not try another design experimenting with different colors, or try out a range of new patterns? The choice is yours!

With over 150 species of owl in the world, picking your favorite can be a challenge. The humble owl is found all over the world, and different species can be found on every continent on the planet, with the exception of Antarctica – essentially, anywhere there is prey, you are likely to find a variety of owl species!

The greatest diversity of these are found in Asia – there are just 19 different species found throughout Canada and the United States. The range of species are found primarily in forested habitats, but they can be found anywhere the prey can be found, and this may include urban, rural and suburban locations.

When it comes to catching the prey, owls rely heavily on their asymmetrical ears, which offer incredible hearing, superior to many other species. This is so precise, that they can pinpoint exactly where their prey is located – even if they can’t see it directly.

Their eyes are also adapted to allow them to hunt, and are made up of tubes that produce a better depth perception, and allow them to see their prey from a great distance. When up close, their eyesight is not as strong, and this is where the great hearing comes in handy. Any mice, rodents or other tasty-looking prey know to run when an owl swoops down – but their fast speed and silent wings usually help them to get the upper hand!
