Rockhopper penguins don’t only have a super cool name, but they are pretty cool birds overall! Why not take a look for yourself by bringing your own cute bird to life – let’s get started.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw a curved “n” shape at the top of your page, roughly in the center. Add two curved lines to the bottom of each end.
Bring the left line out, towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page, and then bring this across and back in with a wavier line.
Make the bottom of this shape a little thicker…
And then follow this with another shape on the right.
Once again, make the ends of this a little thicker and darker.
Bring two curved, parallel lines down towards the bottom of the page.
Add two spiky sections to the bottom, one at the end of each line…
And connect these with a curved line in the center.
Now, add two curved lines to the bottom of the left “spiky section,” and then connect these to the top.
Repeat this on the right for the feet.
Add a curved line to the top of the body, and then add another line inside the top right of this.
Now, add two lines inside the sides…
And create a beak with a “V” shaped bottom, two bumps on the top, and then a “v” shape at the very top of this.
Add two triangle shapes, one on either side of the beak…
And use a black pencil to shade the feet and the top section of the body.
Grab a yellow pencil, and draw two curved lines above the beak.
Use a correction fluid to erase the black lines where they cross the yellow lines.
And then use the yellow pencil to bring more lines across from the two yellow lines.
Use a black pen to add points and lines to the top of the head.
Now, use the black pen to shade the rest of the head.
Use a red pen for the beak and the eyes.
And voila – a stunning Rockhopper penguin – but learning to draw him is just the start! Why not spend a little time learning more about these birds – there is plenty to discover!
