Step 10: Draw the phoenix's eye inside the head, near the middle, as a triangle-like shape. Sketch the eye lightly at first. When you get the shape right, darken the lines.
Step 11: Use the initial triangle-like line as a guide to draw the top part of the phoenix's beak. Follow the basic path of the guide as you darken the lines but make the mouth extend inward more.
Step 12: Now use the angled line at the bottom as a guide to draw the bottom part of the phoenix's beak. Add another V- shaped line inside for the open mouth.
Step 13: Use the initial shapes as guides to draw the top part of the phoenix's head. As you follow the path of the guides, draw wavy, spiky shapes for the flame-like feathers. You can make these flames longer for a bigger crest or just darken the guide lines for a smoother look.
Step 14: Draw more fiery flames using wavy, spiky shapes throughout the head. More flames make it seem as though the phoenix is made of fire.
