Now that I have uploaded one of my favorite lessons from yesterday, I will be giving you guys another easy tutorial that is going to show you "how to draw an easy eagle", step by step. Now I know that the eagle is a majestic and bold bird. Its very presence has undergone a label as being a bird of honor, and loyalty. There are so many different types of symbolisms to this bird of promise. For example, it is said the eagle’s wings are supposed to represent protection, and the talons symbolize the gripping strength of bringing down evil or wrong doers. The nobility that the eagle presents as it soars through the clear blue sky is something that brings joy and awe inspiring sighs to anyone that watching such a magnificent bird fly like a free rebel as it lives a life of freedom. There is no man that can force an eagle down from the skies because there is no bullet that is fast enough, or can travel such a distance to bring down such a bird. A person that carries the urge to trophy himself an eagle is a man that has no honor at all. Eagles are birds of hope, strength, honor, and nobility. There is no other bird that flies the skies with such grace, which is why they will always be the one bird that looks like it flies straight into the heavens. When I see an eagle fly above my head, I always recognize that I am in the presence of a true rebel. I do hope you enjoy this tutorial that will show you with ease, "how to draw an easy eagle". I know I may have gotten a bit carried away with my description, but sometimes I can’t help myself. Gotta go peeps, I’ll be back in a bit, enjoy.

How to Draw an Easy Eagle

how to draw an easy eagle step 1

STEP 1.

An important part of drawing a typical bird wing, is to understand the feather placement to create accurate wings. Primaries are attached to the 'hand' part of the wing; basically imagine your fingers as feathers. Primaries usually have 9 - 11 feathers in their region. Secondaries are feathers that are attached to the forearm region of the wing; imagine your armpit and elbow covered in feathers.

STEP 2.

Lets start drawing our eagle. Make some shapes for the head, torso, wings, and legs. Once those basic framing shapes are drawn out, you can then draw in the beak.

STEP 3.

Now you can start sketching out the shape of the head, and then some of the wing parts like the shoulder dip. Don't forget to add that jagged look in back of the head which is some feathery detailing for texture.

STEP 4.

Sketch out the shape and style of the eagles beak like so, and then draw out the eye. Since this is a basic easy eagle drawing, your bird is going to look a bit cartoony. When the face is done, you can begin drawing out the wings in full detail. Remember what we were talking about in the tip steps.

STEP 5.

Finish drawing out the eagles eye, and then add some fin detailing to the beak like you see here. When that is done, sketch out the wide spread eagle tail, and then the thighs and one of the legs and clawed feet. Sketch in some feathery detailing like you see here.

You have now reached your last drawing step. All you have to do now is draw in the other foot, add some claws or nails, and then draw the thigh line to the leg. Erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one to clean up your newly drawn bird.
