The Linux penguin or Tux the Penguin is an unofficial logo of the Linux operating system created by Larry Ewing, and we are going to learn to draw our very own in just a few short steps – are you ready to get started?
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a black pen, and draw an “n” shape in the center of your page.
Bring a curved line down from the bottom of each side, heading out to the sides, and then straight down.
Add a wavy line to the bottom left line, and then follow this with a curve on the edge.
Bring a line across from the bottom of the wavy line, and connect this to the line on the right for a foot. Make this line a little thicker at the bottom and on the waves.
Now, add another foot to the right…
And make this a little thicker at the edges, just as you did before.
Add a curved “fork” to the top of the right foot, and then bring this line up towards the face, adding a curve at the top.
Add a curved shape to the bottom of the body…
And then add another wavy shape to the left side.
Add a curved beak to the center of the face, and then add a thicker line to the bottom of this. Add a curved line to the center of the beak, and add two dots to the top of the beak.
Add two horseshoe shapes to the top of the beak for eyes, and then add smaller loops inside these. Shade these with a black pen.
Add a small, curved triangle shape to the top of the eyes, and then add more of these shapes around the outside.
Shade the outside section with a black pen, leaving the gaps and holes white.
Use a yellow pen to shade the beak and the feet.
And voila – the wonderful Linux penguin, just waiting for a new home; can you oblige?
