Penguins love to skate, run, climb, dance, and have fun – but have you ever seen one diving? Well, we are about to take a closer look at just what this looks like in just a few short, simple steps; are you ready to create your own diving penguin?
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Use a black pen to draw two small, curved lines towards the bottom of your page. Connect these at the end with a short line.
Bring a curved line across to the left, and add a long, thin triangle to the top of this.
Take the line to a point, and then bring a lineup and across, flicking this up slightly at the top.
Now, return to the top line. Add a “point” to the left of this, and then bring a lineup, and curve it across towards the left side of the page.
Add a small point to the end of this, and then three slightly curved points below.
From the bottom point, bring the line across, add a small “bump”, and then curve it up and across to the right. Take the line down, across, and up to complete a solid outline, and then add a line to the right of the “points”, across and down. Bring another line up beside this, and take this across and up.
Add a curved line all across the bottom of the shapes…
And then use a black pen to add color to the central section at the back, the front, and the front of the curved wing.
Grab a gray pen, and use this to shade the rest of the top area…
And then use an orange pen for the bottom of the beak at the front.
Now, use a yellow pen to fill in the niche on the top of the neck.
Use a blue pencil to bring a curved line down from the bottom of the chest, and then a lighter blue pencil to draw a long, curved shape below this – fill in the curved shape with the blue pencil.
Use a dark blue pencil to add a “point” shape to the back of the tummy, with a curved line behind. Then, use the blue pencil to shade the rest of the page outside of these shapes.
Grab a gray pen, and shade a wavy line just below the tummy…
And then use a black pen to add another wavy line just in front of this.
And there we have it – a penguin enjoying a cool, refreshing dive through crystal waters – what could be better than that?
