How to Draw a Hawk
- Draw the head and torso.
Now you have to draw two ovals of different sizes at some distance from each other. Try to correctly position these objects on a sheet of paper and at the same time maintain proportions.
- Depict the neck.
Draw two smooth connecting lines between the head and torso. The neck should be wide enough.
- Sketch out the tail.
Draw diagonal lines from the back and belly of the hawk. At the end of the tail, draw the outline of several large feathers.
- Add the beak.
The upper part of the beak has a rounded shape, the end of the beak is very sharp. Depict the rest of the beak using curved lines.
- Depict the eye, the nostril and refine the outline of the head.
Draw a short line to represent the upper eyelids, and draw an oval-shaped eye. On the beak, make a short stroke to represent the nostril and depict a smooth line above the beak.
- Draw the wings.
Using a rounded line, depict the visible part of one wing and draw the second wing in its entirety. With the help of several rounded lines, add large feathers at the end of the wing.

Using curved lines, depict the ends of the feathers on the wing. Please note that the feathers are small in the upper part of the wing, and the feathers are elongated towards the end of the wing.
