I think I’m going to make it a habit to upload at least two lessons a day on some really cool animals to add to the ‘for kids’ category. Having said that, what do you say that we all learn "how to draw a peacock for kids", step by step. These decadent birds are one of the most beautiful animal species belonging to the bird family. What makes them so amazing or beautiful is the way their feathery, colorful tails expand into a fan like shape. Only male peacocks have colorful designs and markings on their tail feathers. A peacock’s tail is where the expression came from when you hear someone say “are you peacocking”? The bird design came out fabulous and I think that you guys will agree that drawing a peacock for kids is going to be a whole lot easier than following a lesson on an original type of peacock. Remember guys, fresh ideas for animals can be requested. I know there are more critters that you would like to see drawn in kid form. Have a happy drawing day, and don’t forget to be as vivid as possible when coloring in your new bird which also happens to be a very cute one at that.
