In this tutorial, I want to show you how to draw a realistic turkey. The lesson consists of nine steps that you can easily follow.
Here is a simple instruction from which you will learn how to draw a realistic turkey. This poultry is well known to you, and you have repeatedly seen a turkey in a picture or in real life.
There are no feathers on the head and neck, and on the beak there is a long proboscis made of leather. It is noteworthy that in some countries turkeys were bred for decorative purposes and only after many years they began to be eaten.
Currently, turkeys are kept at home and on large poultry farms. It is worth noting that raising turkeys is a little more difficult than raising chickens. By the appearance of a bird, you can determine its mood. When a turkey is scared or agitated, the skin of the head and neck takes on a brighter color.
