How to Draw a Chick

Step 1.

Okay this whole tutorial lesson is done in four steps. What you will do first is draw out the guidelines and shapes of the baby chicken as seen here. Draw a circle for the head and then an "egg" shape for the body. Once that is done you will draw out the twig like lining for the legs and toes. Add a dash on the face frame for the upcoming beak.

Step 2.

Now using the shapes that you drew in step one, start sketching out the lining of the chicks actual body shape and make sure you have a ruffled stroke to make the hair look puffy on the outside. Once that is done you will draw out the small shape of the beak and then the long shape of the toes and points for the nails. When you are done move to the next step.

Step 3.

Well you have done it after you've finished this step. All you have to do here is sketch out the rest of the body shape for the young chickadee as shown to you here, and make sure you sketch in the outline for a small wing. Draw out and color a seed shaped eye and then add the nostril holes on the beak near the face. You will finish detailing the feet and then erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 4.

Look at what you have just created! You did it, you have just learned how to draw a chick step by step. Now all you have to do now is color it in and your all set. Wasn't that fun and easy? Now you can draw this common farm animal when Easter comes or just draw it for the heck of it.

In this next cute tutorial I will be showing you how to draw a chick step by step. Now as you know chicks are baby chickens that have been born or hatched out from a chicken egg. Whenever new chicks or ducklings are born they are the cutest looking farm animals around. Now most of the time chicks are all fuzzy with a light yellow color and very cute. As you may or may not know chicks are given to children commonly on Easter along with baby rabbits and ducklings. Ducklings are also very cute and like the chick they share the same color when born. Chicks and ducklings do not get their colored feathers until a few months after birth. Did you know that chicks are also manufactured through plants that have machines? It’s true, egg laying chickens are made or manufactured through plants using technology and man. Chicken eggs are incubated for x amount of days until they are tested, vaccinated, and hatched. The baby chickens are then moved through a conveyor belt until they are packed and shipped to farmers across the world. I personally never seen or held a baby chick which means my experience is solely based on visual content. Either way whether seen in person or on the screen chicks are by far one of the cutest baby animals around. This tutorial will show you how to draw a chick step by step. This lesson is so easy, I am leaving it under novice. I hope you learn something new with this lesson and keep your eyes peeled for more exciting drawing tutorials coming your way. Peace out people.
