Step by step drawing a swan

  1. Let’s start simple: draw a semicircle at the bottom of your sheet. But leave some space for some water. Also add an oval, which will later become the swan’s head.
  2. Now add a curved neck and a slanted “U” for the wings. At the bottom, draw a wavy line for the water – the exact shape of the wave doesn’t matter, but try not to make it too curvy. The head is complemented by an eye, pay close attention to its position!
  3. Now give the neck some more volume: simply draw two lines at an equal distance around the neck line. A small “U” becomes the swan’s beak. Also, add wings and tail feathers.
  4. Now it’s time to erase some guidelines. Additionally, add details like feathers and further refine the face.
  5. Trace everything with a black fineliner and erase the pencil lines (Caution: let the drawing dry briefly first!) Then you can color your drawing as you like.
