How to Draw a Cartoon Teal - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Begin by drawing a large hook with the right side lower than the left.
Step 2: Next, draw in a large round shaded-in circle with a semi-circle cut out along the bottom.
Step 3: Next, you'll draw the bill. Start by drawing a long curving loop connected to the top of the head and ending a bit below and to the right of where it began. Add in a thin curve looping around beginning at the front of the bill and curving around the top of the other loop to form the top of the bill and then draw in a line extending diagonally from about the center of the top of the bill to form a point just above and to the left of the eye and looping back down under the eye and connecting into the outer edge of the bill.
Step 4: Now you'll draw the wing. Begin with a long curve extending horizontally from the top of the bill to the left. Draw in a few layers of looping wavy lines for the feathers under the curve, making sure to connect them to the curve. Then add in a few curving pointed loops along the top.
Step 5: Next is the tail. Draw a diagonal line with a horizontal curve opposite the wing to begin. Draw several horizontal lines under the first curve that curve up to meet the one above on the left side and add in two curving, pointed loops by the wing.
Step 6: Draw the body next. Draw in a long circular curve that starts just below the eye and connects to the tail to form the belly.
Step 7: Finally, you will draw the thin legs and webbed feet. Draw in two lines a short distance apart with two more lines just beside them. Then draw in several curving lines extending out from between the lines for the legs to form the toes and then connect the individual toes on each foot with curves to form the feet.
