Penguins are often associated with cold, frozen landscapes and wintery activities – and what could be more appropriate than a penguin enjoying some ice skating? Get ready to take a closer look by drawing your own – let’s get started!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw an angled, curved line across the right of your page. Take the left end down slightly, and then add another “bump” to the end.
Bring a curved line up from either end of this shape, and connect these at the top with a curved line.
Then, bring two curved lines up from either end.
Take the top of the left line across to the left, and to a point. Then, bring a wavy line across to the right, and down to meet the line on the other side.
Add a small circle to the point, creating a cozy winter hat.
Now, bring a curved line down from the bottom left, and take this across, then up to a “bump”, and up to meet the bottom of the hat. Add a small “hook” to the left of this.
Draw another curved shape just below the bottom of the face…
And add a series of stripes across this to form a warm scarf.
Now, add a curved shape, with points at either end, in the center of the face.
Follow this with another shape just outside the first.
Bring a curved line up from the points at the end, and take these to a point at the top. Then, being the lines down at the sides, and connect these at the bottom with a curved line.
Add a small dot inside each of the points…
And then bring two curved, parallel lines down from the bottom of the scarf, and add five small shapes to the end of this for the fringe of the scarf.
Add a series of stripes across this shape for the tail of the scarf.
Add another tail below this…
And then add more stripes to this section.
Bring a wavy line across from either side of the scarf, take this to a point, and then bring the lines back in to form the wings.
Now, add an “egg” shape all around the tail of the scarf.
Now, bring a curved line down from the bottom of the right-wing. Curve this in, then take it across to a “point”.
At the bottom of this, add a square shape, and then add a squarish “n” shape to the left of this.
Now, add a long, thin shape to the bottom of this, and draw a curve at the front and the back for the shape of the ice skate.
Add a line to the top of the left curve, and then two sets of short, parallel lines to the bottom of the long, thin shape.
Now, bring two curved lines across at the bottom, and spiral these up and in at the right end.
Return to the short line at the back, and take this up, across to the right, and down, and then add another square shape at the end of this. Connect this to the left wing with a curved line.
Now, add a curved shape to the back of the square, and add a curved line to the bottom and top of this.
Add two sets of parallel lines to the left, and then add the curved bottom of the skate to the end of this.
Use a red pencil to color the spaces in between the stripes on the scarf, and then shade the hat, leaving a small shape in the right side of this. Use the red pencil to shade the inside of the beak.
Now, use a yellow pen for the outside of the beak, and the stripes of the scarf.
Grab a brown pen, and use this to color the skates on the feet…
And then a red pen for the front and back sections of the feet.
Shade the outside of the end of the hat with a gray pencil, then fill in the remaining portion of the hat with a pink pencil.
And then color the main body and feet of the penguin with a black pen.
Use the gray pencil to shade the edge of the brim of the hat, and then use a red pencil to add spots of color to the cheeks.
And voila – you have your very own adorable penguin, enjoying time on the ice. Is anyone else starting to feel excited about the festive season?
