To draw this cartoon Chicken step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
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: Lightly sketch two small ovals for the cartoon chicken's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shapes right, darken the lines. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles to represent glare. Shade the insides of the eyes using a dark value. As you shade the eyes, don't overlap the tiny glare circles.
Step 2: Under the eyes, close to the left side, draw a small, triangular shape for the chicken's beak. The left side of the beak should be similar to a less-than sign (<). Close off the shape on the right side with a short, curved line.
Step 3: To the left of the bird's eyes, draw a curved line for the side of the head. Sketch lightly at first and only darken the line when you get the shape right. The top part of the line should be very close to the eye. The bottom part should curve extra to create the chicken's cheek.
Step 4: At the top of the chicken's head, draw a big, curved line for the first part of the crest. This curved line should be similar to a tilted letter C.
Step 5: Directly to the right, draw a small, curved line for the middle part of the chicken's crest. To the right side of that, draw a slightly smaller curved line for the right side of the crest.
