I was inspired to do a tutorial on "how to draw a steampunk bird" because I watched the original Clash of the Titans the other day and the mechanical owl in the movie was so cool and adorable, I wanted to make a bird version in the form of a swallow. The swallow bird is a very popular icon among those that like getting inking jobs on their bodies. The swallow is an icon that represents health, wealth, loyalty and long travel. I also enjoyed drawing a steampunk bird because of the golden colors with the silver accents around the eyes, beak, and wings. If you love steampunk, you will definitely like this lesson. Don't go away because there is more tuts coming your way.
