Let`s learn how to draw an ostrich. All of you probably know about the existence of these amazing huge flightless birds like ostriches. So are the American nandu and Australian emus with cassowary. But we will make the reservation that, with a great outward similarity, these all birds are not close relatives. From a scientific point of view, only African ostriches have the right to be called ostriches.
Ostrich drawing lesson 1
Here is a very expressive picture – let’s draw an African ostrich walking through the savannah. To begin with, let’s make the most general outline.
Now look carefully – if we managed to convey the proportions and movement. Do not rush – this sketch is the most important and responsible step in our drawing. Then let’s clarify the pencil sketch a little.
That’s already like an ostrich and you can go to the main drawing. Let’s start, as expected, from the trunk – in the ostrich it is large, oval and located horizontally. The ostriches have wings, but they are reduced and are not suitable for flight.
Draw the legs, they are long and very powerful. A surprising aspect of the African ostrich is the fact that he has two fingers on his feet!
The tail of the ostrich resembles a … drooping broom. The neck is long and flexible, and on it is a very small, straight, tiny head.
Color the resulting picture as a sample:
