How to Draw a Cute Pelican - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: We'll begin with the head. Draw a circle for the face, and draw a long triangle on one side for the beak. Next add details to the face. Draw a dot for the eye, and a line across the beak.

Step 2: Now draw the body. Draw a big u-shape for the bottom of the body, and a curve for the top of the body.

Step 3: Next add the wing. This is a lemon shape in the middle of the body with some feathers at the bottom.

Step 4: The tail is next. Draw a triangle at the back of the body, and add some lines for feathers.

Step 5: Add the feet. These are two long thin rectangles, with triangles at the bottom. Turn the triangles into webbed toes if you can.

Step 6: You've finished your pelican. Pelicans are usually white, but you can colour the beak and feet in yellow if you want.
