Draw the connecting lines between the head and the body. At the same time, add a convex circuit in the front of the body.
- Sketch out the tail.
In the back of the body, depict the tail using smooth, rounded lines. At the end of the tail, there are large feathers that hang down freely.
- Depict the wing.
About the middle of the body, draw the wing. To do this, depict the lower contour and add feathers of the same shape as on the tail.
- Draw the elements on the head.
