You can also choose the dimensions of your sheet and the shape: square, rounded, A4, A3 … and many other solutions.
  • The last step will be to give life, in other words color , to your little feathered animal, for this let your imagination speak. We can advise you on felt-tip pens, colored pencils, neon lights, paint, oil or water-based paint, gouache, charcoal, chalks or greasy chalks, glitter…it’s up to you. to see !
  • To be able to correct all the imperfections, you will need an eraser ! Be careful not to press too hard when drawing the first sketches of the chick.

Step 1: The chick hairstyle

  • The manga and cartoon style chick has like a pretty lock on her head, it’s her hairstyle. She really makes him too crunchy and cute.
  • To draw her ” hairstyle “, you will draw a shape resembling the number 3 slightly tilted, a similar shape will do.
  • In this part, nothing very complicated. We start our tutorial very easily ^^
  • Besides, don’t worry if your sketch doesn’t quite look like our illustrations, they are simply there to guide you and are not to be taken literally. We believe in you.

Step 2: The Head of the Chick

  • Now we can trace the features of the chick’s head .
  • In the center of your sheet, you can draw a circle or an ellipse shape. This will start from the right end of the wick and will go up to join the top of the wick.
  • It is practically identical to a circle or an oval ! In any case, the shape does not have to be perfect, the drawing will be perfectly successful regardless of the success of the layout.

Step 3: Eyes and Beak

  • Now we are going to draw the cute face of the chick. His eyes and his beak will give him a more pleasant and even more stubborn look.
  • For the eyes, you can simply draw two  full or empty circles, it’s your choice. For the beak then you can try to get as close as possible to this shape or simply draw a rectangle that will point down from the head.
  • Now your chick can see and peck! You start to bring it to life

  • For details, you can finalize and finish the small beak of the chick, this step is optional, draw a small line in the center of the beak.
  • Let’s get to the body ! For that, nothing could be simpler, you will be able to draw a semicircle under the animal’s head. Which will start from the bottom left and go up to the right side.

Step 5: The Bird’s Wings

  • It’s time for this chick to start trying to fly, so you’re going to give it some wings. Draw a series of wings on each side of the beast, starting from the bottom of the head and going down the body. For more realism draw the wings with a few curves or “waves” which will represent its feathers in a minimalist style.
  • You can also draw the details of the feathers under the head, drawing it like a collar or a scarf.
