How to Draw a Cartoon Parrot - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: We will begin with the head of the parrot. Start with a curved line downward that moves slightly horizontal in the right direction and then continues vertically once again. This line should have a jagged texture to it and create the chin and the neck. Next, move to the top of the head and create another curved, jagged line that bends downward. Connect these two lines with a jagged horizontal line.
Step 2: Now, off to the left of the head, add a circle in the center with a black dot at its center. A bit off to the left of this eye, add another semi-circle off the top for the other eye. There should be a pointed figure off to the left that represents the beak. Add a horizontal line through the center to create the distinction between the top and bottom beak.
Step 3: Now, from the left end of the neck base, add in a curved line that runs off to the right. Add another two curved lines off the right side of the neck. All three lines should converge together off to the right. Between the top two lines, add in some scalloped vertical lines for the feathers of the wing.
Step 4: Next, off the base of the parrot's body, add two groups of three parallel, vertical lines. There should be a space between each grouping of lines. Underneath these lines, you want to add in two parallel, horizontal lines for the branch he is perched on. The horizontal lines should connect at the end.
Step 5: Finally, off to the right of the tree branch, add in several tube shapes all right next to one another. There should be two rows of these tubes to create the tail of the parrot. Make sure they are enclosed at the base!
Step 6: He looks awesome, great work!
