The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a small circle near the bottom of the paper as a guide for the bald eagle's head. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a lid or a coin. Leave enough room at the top and sides for the bird's wings and body.
Step 2: Under the head, on the left side, draw a small, U-shaped line as a guide for the top part of the bald eagle's beak. To the left draw a small, angled, V-shaped line as a guide for the bottom part of the beak.
Step 3: To the right of the bird's head, draw two lines that curve toward the right for the neck. Now make a small mark off to the right as a guide for the width of the body. Connect the mark to the neck using a curved line to create the top of the body. Now connect the mark to the bottom of the neck using a curved line to finish the guide for the top section of the bald eagle's body.
Step 4: Under the circular shape, draw a big, U-shaped line as a guide for the lower half of the bald eagle's body. Pay attention to the size of the two body shapes in relation to the head.
Step 5: On top of the bald eagle's body, draw a line that slopes to the top, left as a guide for the first wing. Angle that line toward the left side. Add another line on top of the body, on the right, for the bird's other wing. After it angles, the line on the right curves downward more than the line on the left.
