Step 1: Flamingos are famous for their bright pink color. They can often be seen standing in water on their long, thin legs. Begin your flamingo by drawing an angled ellipse for its head.

Step 2: Leave a large gap and draw a larger ellipse with a pinched end to make the flamingo's body.

Step 3: Connect the two ellipses with two wavy lines to make the neck. Flamingos are known for their long necks.

Step 4: Draw the flamingo's beak by making a curved cone shape and adding a line down the middle of it.

Step 5: Add the wing by drawing a three-lobed freeform on the side of the body. The lobes represent the feathers of the flamingo's wings.

Step 6: Next you will draw the flamingo's tail feathers as three curved lines sandwiched together. Make the middle curve the longest.

Step 7: Draw the flamingo's long legs as two sets of lines. Make one set of lines straight and the other bent in the middle. Add ovals for the feet.

Step 8: Draw an oval for the flamingo's eye and shade a crescent shape into it to show reflection. Make sure to color your flamingo pink!
