Hens are smart, cute, and hardworking – it takes a lot of effort to lay an egg! Let’s take some time to thank them for their effort by drawing our very own; let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a small triangle, angled towards the bottom left of the page, in the left side of your page. Add a small mark to the bottom right corner.
From this mark, add another small triangle, and fill both of these in with the black pen.
Bring a line up from the top triangle, and take this across, before looping it down and back up towards the top right-hand corner of the page.
Now, add a loop behind the beak, and add a small dot inside this for the eye.
Add a series of loops, getting larger and then smaller, to the top of the head for the comb…
And then add a wavy line to the back of the hen, bringing these down in four loops.
Now, add two “loops” to the bottom of the beak, and bring a curved line down and across to the right.
Add a small “bump” to the end of this line, and then connect this to the line on the right with a wavy line.
Add four spikes to the bottom of this to create a foot…
And then add two curved lines in front of this for a second leg, and add another foot to the end of this.
Next, create a wing by adding a curved line across the body, and then another curved line at the left side of this, heading down. Connect these with a wavy, curved line.
Close off the wing with the curved line…
And then add a series of small oval shapes all down the chest.
Use a red pen for the shape under the chin, and the comb on the head.
Next, use a pink pen for the mask around the eyes…
Grab an orange-red pen, and use this to shade the rest of the body…
And then use a brown pen for the wing, the front leg, and some of the small oval shapes on the chest.
Use an orange pen to add color to the legs.
And there we have it – a super cute hen, just waiting to be named and for plenty of adventures!
