How to Draw a Cartoon Peregrine Falcon - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: We will start with the beak. Add two small curved lines that meet on both sides. The left side should curve more into a pointed beak.
Step 2: Next, add a horizontal line off the top of the beak that runs to the right. At the base of the beak, add another horizontal line to create the bottom of the hawk's body. In between these two lines, add one more line in the horizontal position that has much more curve and waviness to it.
Step 3: Right above the line you just drew, to the right of the beak, add an almond-shaped figure for the eye and then another small circle in the middle for the pupil.
Step 4: Now for the wings! Begin by drawing a vertical line off the top of the head and then make many short vertical lines running off to the right. They will all be connected at the top with a singular curved line. Repeat this step two more times, creating three rows total of feathers. The top row should have the longest lines and appear more pointy than the two below. Move over to the right a bit and draw two diagonal lines very close together. Move a bit more to the right and add in many short horizontal lines that all connect off to the right with a vertical line. This will create the right wing of your falcon.
Step 5: Now, from the base of the right wing, add in a pair of horizontal lines that converge at the end off to the right to create the tail. Add a few more short horizontal lines to create the feathers of the tail.
Step 6: Now, at the base of the belly, add in two parallel vertical lines. Move over to the right a bit and repeat this step to create the right leg. At the base of both legs, add a set of curved lines to create the sharp claws of the falcon.
