Of all the penguins that roam the southern hemisphere, the Humboldt penguin is amongst the best known by many penguin fans – and we will take a closer look in just a few short, simple steps; are you ready to get started?
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a diamond shape, tilted on its side, in the center of your page.
Add two long, thin shapes on the right side.
Add a curved shape to the left, and angled lines from the right end of this around the edges of the original shape. Then, draw a small black shape in the center.
Take a line down from the bottom, and then another up from the top. Curve this top line across to the left, then down, in, and out towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
Take this to a point, and then take a line across, add another point, and continue it to the right.
Now, bring the line up and across, and repeat this in a “step” effect. Add wavy lines to the top, and then curve this across to the right.
Take this line to a point, and then curve it down, across and back up. As you reach the top, add a wavy element to the line, and connect it to that above – this will be the wing. Draw a curved line just below the wing.
Now, bring two jagged lines up from the top, and finish these with a point at the top. Add a series of small marks to the right.
Now, add a jagged shape to the bottom, and then use a gray pen to shade the area beneath, and add a point above. Use the same gray to shade just beneath the wing.
Grab a black pen, and shade the main body of the penguin…
And then use a pink pen for the face.
And there we have it – your very own Humboldt penguin! There is plenty to discover about these wonderful creatures, so why not get researching!
