Peacocks are well known for their bright colors, stunning design, and elegant tails – and we have everything that you need to create your own beautiful peacock tail: let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start by using a black pen to draw a small “hook” shape on the left half of your page.
At the left end, add a small “backward C” shape to form the top of the head.
Now, add a “teardrop” shaped beak in the “C” shape, and add a small line to the bottom of this, with a small dot just above.
Bring a line across to the right, and then take a line down from the bottom of the face, across to the right and then up.
Add a small wing just below the line at the back, with four “bumps” at the end to create feathers.
Bring longer, pointed feathers out behind this…
And then take a wavy line down from the bottom of the body, across to the right.
Now, add a curved line to the face, and draw small marks at the bottom for long lashes.
Bring a series of curved lines up from the top of the head, and add small circles to the top of these, creating a comb for your peacock.
Now, add another bumpy line inside the first set of wings…
Take the line on the bottom right, and turn this into a small, curved teardrop shape. Follow this with a series of similar shapes curving all around the body.
Repeat this shape with a number of other layers, reaching up to the top right corner.
Grab a dark blue pen, and add a small blue dot to each of the feathers. Add the same shade to the front of the neck and chest, and then a few more dots to the inside of the chest.
Grab another blue pen, and shade the rest of the chest, neck and face, leaving a small white ring around the eyes, and small bumpy sections in the center. Use the same shade to add a small dot to the circle of each comb.
Use a bright blue pen, and shade the rest of the face, comb and the ends of the feathers. Then, add small circles around each of the dark blue dots on the tail.
Use the dark blue pen for the rest of the tail feathers.
Grab a green pen, and shade the wing in front of the tail.
Use a yellow pen to add rings around the shapes on the tail.
And follow this with another, brighter yellow ring.
Use a bright green pen to add color to most of the rest of the tail feathers, leaving a white space at the bottom of each.
Then use a darker green pen to shade the bottom areas and complete your peacocks tail.
Use an orange pen to fill in the beak.
And then color the wing with the dark green pen.
And there we have it – an adorable peacock with a bright, vibrant tail. Why not take a little time to learn more about these stunning creatures; there is plenty to uncover!
