The penguin is a flightless bird that children greatly adore. Its stocky body with short legs makes it unique. The black and white color combination on its body also invokes awe in little ones. Mostly found near the snow-covered poles, their bodies are nicely adapted to swimming. Children would have a fun time drawing the sketch.
Step 1: Make the roundish head of the penguin.
Step 2: Draw the oblong body.
Step 3: Make intersecting vertical and horizontal guides.
Step 4: Draw the triangular beak.
Step 5: Draw the roundish outlines of the feet.
Step 6: Start detailing the head.
Step 7: Give it an inner border.
Step 8: The beak is slightly open.
Step 9: The double rimmed round eye and the semicircular tongue are now drawn.
Step 10: The outline of the body is darkened.
Step 11: A curvaceous inner border is given.
Step 12: The flippers that are spread apart are sketched.
Step 13: The feet are detailed to showcase a serrated lower part.
Step 14: The flippers are now given a dividing line and the round pupil of the eye is made.
Step 15: The bird is colored.
The penguin drawing relies on basic shapes and is easy to do. Not much detailing is involved. If the basic outline can be nailed, the rest of the steps would be a cakewalk. The guides help in getting the perfect body shape and facial features. Kids might require a few trials before getting a satisfactory sketch.
