Hey guys, hopefully everyone is enjoying their morning, and getting ready to start another fun filled day. Some of you kids out there have already started school once again this year, which means a lot of homework, and a lot of studding. Today I will continue my animal theme and submit a lesson on one of the most recognized birds. Now these bird can be found almost anywhere, and when I mean anywhere, I mean they are literally like begging dogs. So, strap on those pencils folks because you will be learning "how to draw a seagull", step by step. Seagulls have got to be one of most annoying birds ever. The reason why I say this is because they remind me of flies. Both fly and seagull hoover over food, and wait for something good to come their way. Their proper name is “Gulls”, but almost everybody I know calls them seagulls. These large birds are usually white and grey in color and have some black markings on their bodies. I have even seen gulls with brown spots, or patches on their wings and heads. One of their noticeable traits is their harsh squawking, and their long bills. These birds are also known to be scavengers, and opportunists. What I mean by that is, they will often sit in the distance and let other animals do all the work when it comes to fetching food. Gulls will usually fly in after an animal is done munching on what they caught, and as soon as the seagull gets done with the remains, there is usually nothing left. Now of course they do get their own food if it is easy for them to find. But normally they will eat road kill, hoover around garbage’s especially at restaurants, and they are also known to steal food right from the hands of humans as they walk down a boardwalk near a pier, or sit and relax somewhere. To me they are one of the most disgusting, and annoying birds known to man, but they do have one appealing trait, their pure white feathers. I still don’t understand how such a grotesque bird can have such clean looking feathers. Anyway, you will learn "how to draw a seagull", and when you are done you can use this bird to place it on one of the scenarios I submitted like the sea or ocean. I have to "squawk" out of here but I shall return. Peace people, and have an awesome drawing day!

Start by making a circle shape for the head, and then add the guidelines for the bill, and neck. Draw another circle for the chest, and make a cone like shape for the rest of the body like so. Once that is done you can then add the two stick lines for the legs.
