Animals are some of the cutest and most mysterious creatures in the world. When it comes to drawing them, there is many ways to sketch animals out. You can draw animals to look realistic, simple, easy, cartoony, or just plain out normal. Today, I thought I would do another lesson that will teach you "how to draw a owl", step by step. I have an owl lesson already but it is really old. The whole point of doing a new owl tutorial, is to update the old, and upload a newer version that will be a lot easier to tackle. Believe me, I know how hard it can be to draw birds. That is why this bird is going to be pretty simple. The inspiration to draw an owl came from Winnie the Pooh. I was watching some of the old reruns on Youtube, and I have to tell you, even though I'm pretty old, watching Winnie the Pooh is still very entertaining. Owls are wondrous animals that are quite, swift, wise, and simple. They lead or live simple lives which is why not a lot of them are seen. You can say that I live in a country setting, and even though I do, I have never seen an owl yet. I hear them hooting every night around the same time, but no dice as to actually seeing one in the flesh. I love these creatures, and if I could, I would travel to a place that dedicates their animal exhibit to just birds and owls. I can't express how much I love birds and their anatomy. When I was a young girl, I used to want to be a bird and fly the skies as I looked below and watched people at play or live their day to day lifestyle. Well, I guess I should be shutting up now so you guys can get busy and start drawing this owl that I have drawn for you all. You should have fun with this sketch because this is the second owl I have on the site as of right now. I have plenty of birds, but out of all those birds, there is only two owls. Peace peeps, and make sure you have fun with the rest of your drawing day.

How to Draw a Owl

STEP 1.

Owls seem to only have two basic shapes when you draw them out, and that is two round circles. You will draw these shapes, and then add the facial guidelines.

Here you will draw the mask frame on the inside of the owl's face, and as you can see there is two arches for the brows. Next, sketch out the outer shape of the wings which are close to the owls body, and then draw the center of this bird with some feathers off to the sides like so.
