Cartoons, cartoons and more cartoons. Drawing cartoon animals is so incredibly fun and I have been extremely addicted to drawing them. I wanted to do a lesson on a cartoon bird and choosing one was difficult. I had to choose between the hawk and the eagle but in the end I decided to do a tutorial on “how to draw a cartoon hawk” step by step. The hawk is a very majestic and bold animal and because of that it is well respected amongst the animal kingdom as well as with humans. The fantasy creature called a griffin has the head of an eagle and or hawk which is probably because the two birds represent power and leadership. Drawing a cartoon hawk is a very simple thing to do because it is less detailed than your typical realistic drawing of a hawk. Now don’t get me wrong the hawk you will be given a lesson on is still detailed, but you don’t have to worry about sketching in a bunch of feathers, or defining eyes. Cartoon animals are supposed to be easy to draw because they lack graphical detailing and definition. I personally think you will have fun with this tutorial on “how to draw a cartoon hawk step by step”. When you are done you can do many things with your drawing, like coloring it, printing it, and maybe even using it for your cell phone wallpaper. I have to get going because it is getting really late and I still have two more tutorials to submit. Peace out and happy drawing.
