How to draw Australian ostriches emu and the cassowary
Let`s learn how to draw Australian ostriches emu and the cassowary. Although these birds are called ostriches in an old fashion, scientists do not consider them close relatives. Emu and cassowaries are cassowary.
How to draw an Emu – lesson 1
You agree that this great long-legged and long-necked bird is very similar to an ostrich. The same long and, as it were, humpbacked body:
Muscular strong legs. But there is a difference: real African ostriches have two toes on their legs, and their Australian counterparts have three.
Curved long neck is covered with rather long feathers. The head is tiny, but with a big strong beak.
In their structure, the feathers of these birds are more like animal wool.

The body is like a gently sloping haystack. The wings, if they exist, are invisible, the tail is also like a bundle of hay.
The neck is S-shaped.
When you paint, please stroke the feathers correctly – in the direction of their growth.
Now you have learned to draw Emu.
How to draw a cassowary
Large oval body covered with long hair-like feathers:
Hanging feathers half close long powerful legs.
Compared with the cassowary emu neck is shorter and there are skin outgrowths. And the most characteristic feature of the exterior of the cassowary is a large horny growth on the head. This crest gives the cassowary a resemblance to a dinosaur.
The line drawing is ready and now it is necessary to paint it correctly.
Now we have studied how to draw Australian ostriches – emu and cassowary.
