Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Bald Eagle" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a vertical oval as a guide for the bald eagle's body. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a smaller oval above the body as a guide for the bald eagle's head.
Step 3: Draw an arc next to the eagle's head as a guide for the beak.
Step 4: Draw two lines below the bald eagle's body that split into three smaller lines as guides for the feet.
Step 5: Draw two curved lines that connect the bald eagle's head to its body.
