Learn how to draw a flamingo

The exotic flamingo as a trend animal

Flamingos on bags, furniture, postcards, and t-shirts? Some animals are simply very popular and therefore are gladly printed on all sorts of products. The flamingo is definitely one of these current trend animals. And that doesn’t surprise us. The bird has a funny body structure with long stick legs and a giraffe-like neck. On top of that, its coloring is striking: flamingos can take on an intensely pink-red hue, which is rarely found in the animal world. When you see a whole flock of these birds standing in the water, there is no doubt. The flamingo is exotic and beautiful!

Drawing a Flamingo Yourself

If so many people love flamingos, why not learn how to draw one yourself? With our step-by-step guide, you’ll learn how to do it!

As with all drawing instructions, first take a look at the entire guide and pay particular attention to the distances between the elements. Feel free to consult our detailed description at How it Works.

We start with a circle for the head and an upward curved arc. This will later become the body. Below the arc, we draw two points that we will connect in the next step. The left point is directly connected to the head, creating a nice curve for the flamingo’s neck. In the middle under the body, we draw two small circles. These are the joints for the first leg. Follow the remaining steps exactly as instructed. The curvature is important for the beak, as it gives the flamingo its characteristic appearance.

So, is your bird slowly taking shape? Once you’ve finished the drawing, you can outline everything with a black fineliner. Then erase the pencil lines and give your long-legged friend a vibrant pink color. And there you have it—your own flamingo drawing!
