Okay here it is, the last lesson for the day before I return tonight with more. I will be uploading animal heads throughout the week so prepare yourself to see animal tuts. Having said that, here is "how to draw an Ostrich head", step by step. The ostrich is such a weird looking bird. They have these big ball shaped bodies with long necks and small heads. I can remember going to the zoo and I tried to take a picture of the ostrich, but when people got too close to it's habitat, it just ran away. I don't think they are too friendly when it comes to sharing their space and dealing with people. Anyways, drawing an ostrich head should be a lot easier then sketching out the whole bird. Have fun and be sure to tune into tonights Livestream.
