Last night, I did a few for kids lessons since a lot of people here are beginning artists. In this new installment tutorial, we will be learning 'how to draw birds for kids', step by step. Here you see before you is a cockatiel bird and a small parakeet (without the intense markings). I based both breed of parrot on my previous pets I've own which are now dead. Rocky (the Cockatiel) was my favorite bird ever owned and was my second truly awesome pet I wish to have again. For some reason, I connect with birds and how they are intelligent as well as loyal, loving creatures. They are of course, (the parrot breed), one of the most smartest animals which realize human emotion and can depict your mood swings. I know, pretty cool, I've learned that while reading countless bird books when I was a kid. Drawing these two birds should be easy since there's only a few circles to draw and mostly round features. I had so much fun with this lesson, especially the background creation. Thanks so much for viewing this tutorial and I hope your Halloween was 'fantastical'! Peace out and keep drawing, folks!
