Step 11: Add a few lines on the right side of the head for extra detail. Under the eye, draw a couple of circles for the patches on the feathers. You can also skip this step for a simpler drawing. Near the top of the parakeet's wing, draw a few wavy lines for more detail on the feathers.
Step 12: Using a pen or marker, carefully go over the lines to make your budgie drawing permanent. After inking, get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser.
Final Step: Color your budgie drawing using color pencils, markers or even crayons! Budgies have a variety of colors, so you can color yours however you'd like. For a standard budgie look, color the head, wing and back of the body yellow. Color the rest of the bird's body green. Use blue or purple for the nose, the throat patches and a bit on the tail. Use peach or yellow-orange for the beak and toes. Use brown for the perch. If you have a pet budgie, try to duplicate its colors on your drawing. Don't forget to pause to draw at your own pace.
