The eagle is a large bird of prey from the hawk family. Representatives of this family have a fairly massive and well-developed body. They have strong and relatively long legs, with plumage down to the toes, which is more like “trousers”.
At the same time, the head is quite small, and the neck is strong and muscular. The eyes of an eagle are large, but not distinguished by noticeable mobility. However, their neck is so mobile that this disadvantage does not have a significant, negative effect on the life of a bird of prey.
Eagles also have rather strong claws and beaks. The beak has a curved end, which confirms the predatory nature of the bird. This bird symbolizes such concepts as glory, luck, victory, and power. That is why this majestic bird can be seen on the emblems of many states.
When you learn how to draw an eagle head with this tutorial, you will be able to draw the whole eagle by complementing the drawing with an image of the head of an eagle of this species, and you can also use this as the main subject of your drawing.
