How to Draw a Eagle

Step 1.

Drawing a eagle is going to be very, very easy as you can tell just by looking at the first step. Start with a circle for the head and then add the facial guidleines. You will now draw another circle for the shape of the eagles body and then draw another fan like shape for the outline of the eagle wing. Lastly add the lining and shapes for the legs and feet.

Step 2.

Start sketching out the actual shape of the eagles head using a puffy line sketch to convey the feathery look. Once that is done you can then draw two more circles for the eagle eyes, and be sure to color them in as you see them here. Lastly, draw the shape of the beak and add some detailing to it too.

Step 3.

Add the eyebrows and then sketch out the chin definition. Next sketch the shape of the eagles thighs and then draw the eagles legs and talons. Be sure to add the claws or nails.

Step 4.

You are almost done with this tutorial on "how to draw a eagle". The fun part is next because you will now start drawing the eagle wings. Learning how to draw eagle wings is so much fun if you like drawing wings. All you have to do is start sketching out the feathers inside of the outlined shape you drew in step one for the wing. Once the layers of feathers are drawn out you can sketch out the feathers on the chest and then some feathers for the left wing.

Step 5.

For your last drawing step you will just sketch out the eagle feathered tail the way you see it done here. After that is done you are ready to start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

Here you have it, a finished drawing on "how to draw a eagle step by step". That was fun and easy wasn't it? Color in your bird and that's it. Great job guys!
