First spend a bit time staring at your topic, taking note of the relative proportions of head and physique. search for powerful strains the place the bird’s plumage adjustments in color, price or texture (different feather forms) akin to collars and moustache traces and the way those could relate to underlying anatomical beneficial properties. With many birds the feathers round the neck convey a unique line while the bird’s head turns. become aware of the place this line of separation is and mark it in your drawing – it may be a major function in the event you come to expressing the nature of the fowl. some degree approximately those drawings: you could discover that the white cheek of the good tit has a gloomy line working throughout it, but I haven’t integrated that function within the caricature. We’ve mentioned issues: one is to examine your topic in genuine lifestyles; the opposite is the point of examining pictures.
