Step 10: Draw a series of quick, short strokes on the right side of the beak for the feathery base. Darken the bottom half of the angled line on the left to create the bottom of the house finch's beak. The right side of the bottom part of the beak curves up slightly.
Step 11: Use the initial circle as a guide to draw the rest of the house finch's head. Follow the basic edge of the circle as you use quick, short strokes to create the shape of the head. Continue to follow the guide toward the right to create the neck. Add some strokes under the beak too. Add a few quick, short strokes inside the head as well to emphasize the feathery texture.
Step 12: Draw the first part of the house finch's folded wing within the shape of the body using a long, curved line. The overall shape of this part of the wing is similar to a long letter C that's kind of wavy. Pay attention to how far down this line goes before curving back to the top. Add a few quick, short strokes at the top for the top part of the folded wing.
Step 13: Now draw the lower half of the bird's folded wing using more curved lines right underneath. The lower half of the wing should extend toward the outside of the initial guides. The shape should be similar to an arc. The tip of the wing should be thin. Add an extra curved line at the bottom for the tip of the wing. Pay attention to how much the wing sticks out of the body.
Step 14: Darken the outer edges of the initial guides to create the shape of the house finch's body. Use a series of quick, short strokes for the fluffier feathers found on the bird's underside.
