How to draw a stork step by step

Let`s learn how to draw a Stork.

When I was going to draw pictures for the lesson how to draw a stork, I got really into and spent the whole evening drawing storks and cranes and herons. The next day I began to review the pictures and thought they were all so similar! How could I know the difference? Not good to give the image of a crane for the picture of the stork, right?

So I rushed to read Wikipedia to distinguish who is who in my pictures. It turned out that storks and cranes except that have huge differences in lifestyle and habits, just have little differences in appearance. Both these birds are long-legged and long-necked with a long tweezer-like beak.

But the stork‘s beak is thicker and more powerful. The crane has long curly feathers on the wings so it looks sleeker. The stork feathers are stiff and unadorned. And there are differences in the distribution of black spots on the body. Having all this information I’m pretty sure I will teach you how to draw the stork specifically.
