Learning to draw a pelican in stages (+ coloring)2 849
The body length of the largest pelican is 130-180 cm, weight is 7-14 kg. They live in the seas, shallow lakes and rivers. Eat fish. But they do not know how to dive, so food is extracted from the surface of the water. Only American species of birds dive, falling into the water from a height. Having caught the prey, the pelican drains the water from the throat sac through the beak and swallows the fish. A day can eat more than 1 kg of fish. They walk awkwardly, but fly well and float, can soar for a long time.
Want to draw a pelican? Let's do this together 🙂 With this instruction you can draw a pink pelican, white, curly or another look. The basis of the drawing is the same.
To make it easier to draw a pelican, we need three auxiliary figures - three circles of different sizes. The first we denote the bag on the beak.
Use a compass, but do not press down hard on the pencil. Later the circle will change its shape.
We denote it by a small oval.
We draw from above in the form of a small circle.
We begin to connect the head with the body, drawing a long neck.
Erase the lines gently erase.
Wings and beak
The wings of these birds are large.
The beak is also big. Its length can reach up to 47 cm. At the end of the hook. On the underside of the beak is a highly stretchable leather bag. Its pelicans are used for fishing.
Add long feathers.
Pelicans slam their wings and beaks in the water and force out frightened fish in shallow water.
Add it all over the body.
Now we have finished drawing the head.
They are short, but very strong. Fingers are connected by a swimming membrane.
Figure is ready. Erase all unnecessary, and move the contours.
The color depends on what kind of bird you are painting. If you decide to draw a pink pelican, naturally, the plumage will be pink.
