How to draw a crow:
Step 1: As we always do for every drawing, start with drawing head with help of an oval. Draw this on the left corner of your paper.
Step 2: Draw another, larger oval connected to the first oval. The second oval should slant from the first one towards the bottom right corner. It will end at the middle of the page. This is the raven’s body.
Step 3: Draw 2 slightly curved lines joining the head and body to form the neck. Sketch one line from the upper part of the oval moving forward in the corner of the paper. Start the second line from the below of oval forming a curve and then parallel to the first one, keep the end open.
Step 4: Draw a curvy line from the middle of the oval and ending at the middle of the tail line. Draw another line and connect it to the bird’s back.
Add some curved small zig-zag feathers, all curves should end with a jagged point. Draw these feathers on the neckline, end of the tail, and below a large oval.
Step 5: Erase all the overlapped lines and guidelines drawn. Remove the outline of the ovals of the head, wings, body, and stomach.
Sketch the legs, start with the curved line from the lower bottom part of the stomach. Draw the lower leg at an angeled with the top leg. Draw small jagged joints in the joint line of leg.
Step 6: Draw the foot with the wavy line below the leg. there are 4 toes in every leg with the claws. Draw the toes of the second leg also. Draw small triangular claws at the tip of every claw.
Step 7: Draw beak using 3 curves, start them from the same point bifurcating, and then joining at the end again with the jagged end. Draw the beak in a manner that it is overlapped with the head.
Connect the right side of the top and middle lines with a straight line that bends sharply at the bottom.
Step 8: Erase the straight line of the beak and you will get a clear image of the crow.
Erase the straight line of the beak and the curved line crossing the upper front leg.
Step 9: Draw a feather with the jagged line all over the body. Draw feather texture in the upper wing. Draw 5 curves on the crow’s flight feathers. Draw parallel lines on the tail.
Near to the beak draw 3 circles for eyes and shade the middle circle.
Step 10: Drawing is complete, complete it by coloring it using grey and black color.
