How to draw a Hen – lesson 1
This hen does exactly what hens are constantly doing – searching for food on the ground.
In this position, the torso of the chicken looks completely triangular.
Four-fingered legs stand steadily.
The head is small. But it is visually enlarged with its beak.
In addition, there is a comb and other skin growths on the head.
Let’s color the resulting outline of a hen.

I will not give a geometric definition of the shape of your body type it is oval or triangular. It has the shape of the body.
Typically the hen legs are straight and slender to the knee. Higher we see hen thighs – they are really muscular. Hens have four fingers on their feet. Three toes are directed forward as a fan, and the fourth – backwards.
Chickens have little brains and their heads are small. In profile we see only one chicken eye – right in the middle of the head. Chicken tail looks like a broom. Well, here is our Hen drawing.
However, our lesson is not over yet. Now let us learn how to draw a Hen head.
