This next tutorial is going to be on how to draw a pigeon. Now pigeons are those dirty birds that crowd the streets, parks, building, and sidewalks of New York City. Pigeons have earned the “dirty” name because they poop everywhere and they eat anything. You will often see folks sitting on bench’s feeding these birds either bread or wild bird seed. The actual name of these birds that we commonly see is “rock pigeon”. They are considered domesticated because they thrive amongst the human race without fear because they know by now that we are not out to hurt them in any way. If you were to ask me what I think of these birds, I would have to tell you that to me they are disease infested and real dirty, I mean pigeons and pigs are the same in my book. Rock Pigeons are pale grey with two black stripes on each wing. They vary in size between twelve to fifteen inches in length with a twenty five to thirty inch wingspan. These birds are probably one of the few that don’t look any different whether they are male or female. I tried to draw out this pigeon in a way that he/she would look cute. But like I said before, they are simply gross to me. I mean when I walk under a bridge I have to avoid stepping on the mound of pigeon poo that blocks my way. Yuk! Anyway I know you will like drawing this cute pigeon because I put him/her on top of a building with its wings semi expanded. You will see just how easy it is to learn how to draw a simple pigeon step by step. I will be back tomorrow with more drawing tutorials for you all to learn from, I hope you had a fun learning experience today in DragoArt.com.

How to Draw a Pigeon

how to draw a simple pigeon step 1

STEP 1.

Okay as you can see this first step looks like the shape of a turkey. You will start by drawing a small circle for the head and then a big plump circle for the body. You will next draw out the shapes of the wings and ass the feather lines along the ends. Next sketch out the shape of the thick meaty looking thighs and then the guidelines for the feet and legs.

STEP 2.

Now here you will start to draw out the face by adding a small beady eye and then a small shaped beak. Next, add the shape of the neck and then finish the feather tips on the wings and make the tail. You will then detail the bottom end of the thigh and begin sketching in the feet and legs along with the nails.

STEP 3.

Here you will sketch in some small feather details along the inside of the expanded wing as well s draw out more long shaped feathers for the tail. Now you can sketch in the feet and claws better and then detail the beak and color in a pupil for the eye.

STEP 4.

This is the last drawing step and all you will do here is detail the wing more with definition lines. You will sketch small shaped feathers that are scattered on the wing and then detail the birds legs with small dashes for lines that go across. This will detail the leg and make it look more bird like. Start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.
