Hello once again everyone and welcome back to another lesson on Dragoart.com. Today I will be teaching you how to draw a chocobo, step by step. Even though the name for this particular lesson may seem odd, it is in fact an animal from the Final Fantasy game series. These birds like creatures play a big part in the game series. They are first seen in early Final Fantasy games like FFII and from there they have made a name for themselves. Chocobo’s are mainly used for transportation as you travel through the terrains of the Final Fantasy world. They are very simple looking avian mounting race that helps speeds up the travel time as you walk from one place to the other. A member did a chibi tutorial on the bird and that came out pretty cool. This lesson is going to show you how to draw a chocobo just by using a few steps. I know this lesson is pretty short but I am stretched for time. I will be back however and with my return I will have more drawing fun in store for you all. Peace out people!
