For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: Draw an oval tilted on its side as a guide for the pelican's body. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a small circle above and to the right of the oval as a guide for the pelican's head.
Step 3: Using two curved lines, connect the circle to the oval and form the pelican's neck.
Step 4: Draw a line next to the pelican's head as a guide for the long beak.
Step 5: Below the body, draw an angled line as a guide for the pelican's feet.
