Start by drawing a small circle. This will form the pigeon’s head.
Draw another other big circle at lower place. This will form the pigeon’s body.
Connect the head to the body, using a pairs of curved lines, forming the neck. From the bottom and back of the body, extend two curved lines that converge and meet in a point, forming the tail.
Draw a series of connected “U” shaped lines along the tip of the tail.
Erase guide lines from the pigeon’s body.
Draw a circle in the middle of the head to form the eye. Within each eye, draw a smaller circle. Shade between the two circles.
Draw two short curved lines extending from the head, meeting in a point to form the pigeon’s beak. Draw another curved line between the circle and the tip of the beak, to divide the upper and lower portions.
Outline the pigeon’s wing. Use a long curved line for upper of the wing; for the lower side, draw a series of shorter wavy lines.
Detail the neck with two wavy lines. And add some dots beneath the wavy lines, at the wing, the belly and the tail.
Draw some birdseed on the ground.
Color your pigeon!
