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 circle as a guide for the top part of the bluebird's body. First make four small marks to determine the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a coin or a lid. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: On the top, left side, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the bluebird's head. This circle should be about half the size of the first one. The edges of the two circles should touch.
Step 3: Inside the head, draw two intersecting lines as guides to help you place the bluebird's facial features later.
Step 4: On the left side of the head, draw a small arc on its side as a guide for the bluebird's beak.
Step 5: Draw two curved lines that connect the bird's head to the body to create the guide for the neck. Pay attention to where these lines start on the head and end on the bluebird's body.
