In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw an ostrich. This step-by-step guide was created especially for beginners.
The ostrich has beautiful plumage, a long neck and long strong legs. The ostrich cannot fly, but it runs very well and is able to develop great speed. Ostriches can be dangerous and may even attack humans when defending their territory.
It is commonly believed that the ostrich hides its head in the sand, but in fact this is not the case. In case of danger, the ostrich flees.
I hope that you were interested in learning a few facts about the ostrich, and you are ready to start drawing. If you have all the art supplies at the ready, then you can get to work.
