Here is a really cool head of a bird that represents a lot of meaning to many different places around the world. Today I will be showing you "how to draw an eagle head", step by step. There is a few lessons on Dragoart that is based around the eagle's design or concept, I just felt that having a lesson all by itself on the eagle would make more sense with no extra fluff around the head. Sketching or drawing out an eagle's head is really not at all that hard. At first I had to approach this drawing with thought because I had to be sure that once it was all drawn out, it would be easy to convert into a step by step lesson. After a few tries I finally succeeded in making a drawing that would be simple to tackle, and fun to color in. I think you will find that drawing an eagle head is going to be a lot more fun than you might think. I know I was pleasantly surprised to find how entertaining it was to make a really nice eagle head that is clear, and very bright. I hope you guys think that this tutorial is fun, but if you are in the mood for something different, stick around because I have a lot more coming your way. Peace out folks and enjoy the rest of your drawing day!
