How to Draw a Peacock
- Prepare the base.
Draw auxiliary shapes that will help you correctly position the parts of the body. To do this, draw a small circle to represent the head and draw a large circle at the bottom to indicate the position of the torso.
- Depict the neck and beak.
Draw smooth lines that connect the head and torso on each side. Draw the small beak on the head.
- Add the top of the paws.
In order to draw the upper part of the legs, you can use one wavy line, which must be drawn in the lower part of the torso.
- Sketch out the bottom of the paws.
In this step, depict long thin paws and add three pointed fingers at the bottom. Try to keep proportions and correctly depict the size of the paws.
- Depict the elements of the feathers.
Each feather on the peacock’s tail has a beautiful multicolored oval at the end, and in this step draw these ovals that are located around the torso.
- Make the tail more voluminous.
Repeat the previous step and add a few more layers of feathers on the tail. Just add the same ovals you drew in the previous step.
- Add the base of the feathers.
From each oval, draw a small line, which is the main frame of the plumage. It will take some time, but you will get excellent results.
- Draw the top outline of the feathers.
Draw a small, curved line above each feather. Perhaps this work will seem laborious and painstaking to you, but then you will be proud of yourself.
- Correct the inaccuracies.
Compare your drawing with the example and correct any inaccuracies as needed. Carefully remove all extra lines.
- Color the peacock.
To color the peacock’s plumage, use the brightest colors. Color the body blue and color the tail feathers green.
