Peacocks are amongst the most beautiful birds that many of us get to see, and are known for their bright, stunning colors and friendly personalities. Want to see for yourself? Then let’s bring our own peacock to life in just a few simple steps: let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a “hook” shape in the left of your page.
Add a small, curved, crescent shape to the left end of this line.
From the bottom of this crescent shape, bring another curved line down to run parallel to that on the right.
Add a small circle just behind the crescent-shaped beak, and carefully divide this to create two small, white dots inside the eye.
Bring a series of curved marks up from the top of the head, and top these with small circles to form the comb.
Now, add a large, curved wing to the bottom of the neck, adding a point at the bottom of this.
Add a series of small, wavy lines across the wing to create feathers…
And then add another curved shape, almost like half a “bell” shape, to the back of the wing. Add a bumpy line to the bottom of this.
Fill in this new section with a series of small bumpy shapes.
Next, add a curve from the right of the neck to meet the shape you just drew, and add wavy lines inside this.
From the bottom point of the front wing, bring a jagged line down the page, and across to the right.
Follow this with another jagged line on the other side, and connect these at the end.
Fill this tail section with small “teardrop” shapes all the way down.
Add a line from the front of the wing down to the tail, and add a few vertical marks inside this.
Now, bring a pointed shape across at a diagonal, with the point to the right of the peacock’s body, pointing up towards the top right-hand corner of the page, and the end on the left side of the body, widening as it heads towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
Add a curved point to the right section, and then add a series of wavy lines to create branches.
Add a few leaves to the branches…
And follow this with more leaves at the top.
Grab a deep blue pen, and add color to the bottom of the head and the back of the neck.
Follow this with a bright blue pen for the front of the neck and the face, leaving a white ring around the eye. Add the same shade to the circles of the comb.
Grab an orange pen, and use this to add color to the inside of each of the shapes on the tail, and the bottom section of the wings.
Next, take a bright blue pen, and add another layer of color to the shapes on the tail…
Before following this with small marks at the bottom, made with a deep blue pen.
Use a teal pen to shade the remainder of each shape.
Now, grab a dark green pen, and shade the back section of the tail, as well ad the middle of the back wing.
Follow this with a lighter green pen on this back wing, and on the remainder of the tail…
And then use a bright green pen for the leaves on the tree,
Add color to the wing with a gray pen applied around the edges.
Then, shade the rest of the wing with a lighter gray pen.
Use a brown pen to add color to the bottom of the branch…
And then a lighter brown or orange pen for the rest of the branch.
Now, we have a peaceful peacock just minding his own business and watching the world go by – all that he needs is a name!
