In this tutorial, you will need to be able to make smooth, rounded lines. The head is an even circle, and the body is also rounded. The paws are very small, the beak is of medium size. Note that in this illustration, the duck does not have a neck. Therefore, it looks more like the little duckling. If you want to draw an adult duck, then add the neck and make the wider surface of the legs. I also draw your attention to the color of the duck.
