So, I suggest you complete a new lesson in which you will learn how to draw a crow step by step. Before I start drawing, I want to share some information about these birds with you.
Crows live everywhere, they can be seen both on the streets of big cities and on agricultural land.
Crows are able to make many sounds, so they communicate with each other. These birds are very smart and inventive birds, they can count and come up with different ways to get to food.
Crows are well adapted to life in cities, these birds are omnivores, and they can eat both plant foods and hunt small animals. Crows have excellent hearing and react quickly to sound, making them difficult to catch. These birds are known to be very fond of shiny objects. The crow tries to grab the item and hide it in its hiding place.
In many nations, a negative attitude has formed towards the crow, and it is believed that this bird brings misfortune. When drawing, try to keep proportions so that the crow is easily recognizable. The crow is a large bird with a strong build, a long tail, a medium-sized beak and shiny black plumage.
