I have another beautiful tutorial that is going to show you "how to draw swans", step by step. To my amazement, out of all the lessons I have submitted here so far, I only did one lesson on the swan. What inspired me to do another tutorial on this fantastic bird, is the fact that Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, so I thought an awesome tutorial on two swans with their heads touching each other forming a love heart would be something that folks would enjoy drawing especially for the upcoming holiday season. There are no two birds that give off a display of love, peace, and beauty then two swans on a lake together. Drawing your swans is going to be pretty simple, and the great thing about this tutorial is the fact that you can add some really cool features or perks to make your drawing look like a picture perfect Valentine’s Day card. Now you can say I love you without even writing the words because as soon as your sweetheart sees the two swans in the form of a heart, he/she will already know what the message is. I had so much fun making these birds. I think you too will enjoy teaching yourself "how to draw swans" as well. Stick around guys because I have more fun coming your way.
