Drawing animals from around the world (11 lessons, $17.82)

Using your finger and run it across the paper imagining where the basic body parts of the chick will be. When you start your drawing work lightly with the pencil to make changes later. Begin with an oval for the head and a large shape for the main part of the body.Follow the video to make the smaller lines for the chest and where the beak is to be placed.A circle for the eye and one more curved line for the neck. A bowl shape for the upper part of the leg with more angled lines for the rest of the feet. A tail made of a curved line following the body. Watch carefully on how to make the wing and eye shapes. Make a heavy line going around the body and curvy short lines to make it look fluffy. Use an eraser to make out lines you don't want and finish the details in the eye. Add a few more feathers. Shade in the parts of the chick that make it stand out. Add in a background of maybe some other bird in a barn yard with them eating food on the ground.
