How To Draw A Chicken

Today I am going to fill another reader request, and teach you how to draw a chicken.

I was surprised to find out just how many requests I have gotten to do a chicken tutorial, so let’s not waste any more time.


What you’ll need:

To get your drawing started, draw a large egg-shape, (now we all know which came first), which will be the body of your chicken.

Give your chicken a long, slightly curved neck. As you can see in the image on the left, the neck ends in a small bulb, which will eventually be the chicken’s head.

You chicken’s legs should be drawn in two parts– Wide, feather covered thighs, and skinny, bare lower legs.

Draw in your chicken’s wide, fluffy tail. A chicken’s tail sits high on its back, with the tip of the tail nearly as high as its head.

Draw in your chicken’s tiny beak, with a wattle (small flap of skin), beneath its beak.

Give your chicken a super small eye, and a comb on top of its head.

Add in a little more detail to make you chicken look like it has feathers, and that’s it! You’re all done.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial on how to draw a chicken.
