How to Draw a Realistic Stork - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Let's start by drawing the bill which is a narrow cone-shape. Draw it diagonally, with the pointed tip towards the left and downwards and the base right and upwards.

Step 2: Draw the head by drawing a curved semi-circular head on top of the bill and going down towards the right.

Step 3: Draw the neck by drawing a vertical fuzzy curve below the bill.

Step 4: Draw the eye behind the bill in the middle of the head. It is a tiny almond shap shaded in with black.

Step 5: Now we draw the body. Draw a horizontal curve below the head and a curved line below the neck.

Step 6: Let's draw the wings now. Draw a curved line from the top of the body down and then towards the middle of the body making a curved "V". Now draw three straight horizontal lines across the wing and make diagonal and vertical lines in each section of the wing.

Step 7: Draw the tail by drawing a fuzzy line below the wing.

Step 8: Next we draw the legs for which we draw long straw-like legs below the body with two parallel lines for each leg, ending in three long cone-like fingers on each foot.
