Step 6: Draw another arc on the lower right side as a guide for the bottom part of the macaw's body. This arc should be long and thin. It should be about the same length as the first circle and arc combined.
Step 7: Draw a short curved line that's similar to the letter C on its side as a guide for the macaw's feet. Draw a long diagonal line on the lower right side as a guide for the bird's tail.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 8: Lightly sketch a small circle inside the macaw's head for the eye. Use the construction lines as guides for placement. When you get the size and placement of the eye right, darken the circle. Inside the eye, on the top right, draw a small circle to represent glare. In the middle, add a big dot for the pupil. Draw a few curved lines around the eye for the folds of bare skin.
Step 9: Use the initial circle as a guide to draw the top part of the macaw's beak. Follow the path of the circle as you create the top edge of the beak but draw the line a bit lower, outside of the circle. Draw the base of the beak as a curved line on the left side of the horizontal construction line. Now draw the bottom edge of the top beak as a wavy line that meets the first line outside of the initial circle. The lines should connect outside of the circle on the lower left side and form the pointy tip of the beak.
