An owl is truly an unusual animal. Evolution has created an ideal night hunter who can fly silently in complete darkness and track down prey only with the help of hearing and smell.
There are a huge number of varieties of owls. Today I decided to go with the classic owl look and present it in a cartoon style.
You don’t need very cool drawing skills to draw this cute owl. Just repeat after me the steps from each step and you will end up with a very cute owl on your piece of paper.
Time needed: 25 minutes
How to Draw an Owl
- Draw the body of the bird.
In fact, it looks like a large oval in the center of a piece of paper.
- Add the outlines of the ears.
Correct the contour of the torso and draw the ears that look like two triangles.
- Add the outlines of the wings.
They are just two smooth, curved lines that are located to the side of the contour of the torso.
- Draw the eyebrows of the owl.
These are two smooth lines that form an angle at the top of our bird’s head.
- Draw the outer outlines of the eyes.
Owls have really large eyes. This is a very noticeable detail in the appearance of these birds.
- Draw a triangle on the torso.
These lines are parallel to the contours of the torso from the second step.
- Add our bird’s paws.
Place three rounded elongated shapes on each side as in my reference.
- Draw the eyes and beak.
Pay attention to the ratio of the size of the beak to the eyes.
- Color the owl.
Various shades of brown would be the perfect choice for this cute bird.
