How to draw Angry Bird
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start by sketching a circle. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It will only be used as a guide for the head/body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the circle, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines a bit so that they follow the contour of the circle. These will be construction lines that will help you place the Red Angry Bird’s features later on.
Step 3: Right below where the construction lines intersect, draw a diamond shape and a horizontal line that cuts across it. This is a guide for the Red Angry Bird’s beak.
Step 4: Draw a three small, curved lines sitting on top of the horizontal line. These will serve as guides for the Red Angry Bird’s eyes. The line in the middle should be shorter than the others.
Step 5: You’re almost done! You have the basic Red Angry Bird shape, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
Step 6: Using the initial diamond guide, tighten the shape of the beak. Make the top half curve over and overlap the bottom half. Give the Red Angry Bird a small opening to the left where he shows his teeth.
Step 7: Darken in the shapes of the Red Angry Bird’s eyes by using the guides you set earlier. They should be sitting on top of curved lines that act like cheeks. Inside the shapes, sketch in two big dots for his pupils.
Step 8: Over his eyes, draw a shape similar to a very thick and wide letter V. This will be the Red Angry Bird’s big unibrow.
Step 9: Tighten the shape of the Red Angry Bird’s body by darkening it and making it wider at the bottom. At the top of the head, draw two long, overlapping curves as the feathers on his head.
Step 10: On the left side of the body and above the horizontal construction line, draw three thick lines that will be the Red Angry Bird’s tail feathers.
Step 11: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of a Red Angry Bird. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look or go for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.
Step 12: For a more finished, inked look, carefully go over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a finished inked drawing of a Red Angry Bird! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Angry Bird drawing.
Final Step: For a completely finished Red Angry Bird drawing, you have to color it. You can use markers, color pencils or even crayons! Color his eyebrows and tail feathers black and his beak yellow. Color his face/body red except for a small semi-circle at the bottom that is cream or light brown in color. Color the area around his eyes and two circles on his body a darker red color. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of a Red Angry bird.
