How cute would it be to draw a parakeet in cartoon form? That is the same question I asked myself yesterday and seeing how I love birds, why not make a tutorial on "how to draw a cartoon parakeet", step by step. Drawing parakeets is by far one of the funnest concepts to do because they are so incredibly cute, and popular. Unlike other parrot species, parakeets are one of the more affordable parrot species to buy from a pet store. Cockatiels are more expensive and a lot more defined. I owned a parakeet before that looked very much like the one you see here. Drawing cartoon birds can be a fun activity because almost everyone can tackle such a task and totally come out in the end with a successful drawing. I think this cartoon parakeet will be liked by many and hated by few. I shall return with one more lesson that is going to be on another animal, but in a certain Japanese form. Stay tuned in to see what it will be.
