How to Draw a Cartoon Magpie - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Start by drawing the beak which is an elongated diamond shape with a line in between. Draw a dot at the right corner of it.
Step 2: Now draw the head by drawing a circularly curved line starting from the top of the beak. Now draw a small line below the beak.
Step 3: Draw a tiny circular eye behind the beak and shade it in.
Step 4: Now we draw the body by drawing a curved line below the head on each side. Make the right line fuzzy and more curved than the left. Make the left line slightly smaller as well.
Step 5: Draw a cone-shaped pointed wing starting from below the head and extending towards the left. Draw several diagonal lines and curves on it for detail.
Step 6: Next we draw the feet for which you first draw a fuzzy horizontal line below the body. Now make two thin, curved appendages with three thin pointed fingers on each.
Step 7: Draw a diagonal line extending out from under the wing and connect it back to the body with a curved line. Now draw several lines diagonally on the tail for detail.
