Step 6: Draw a small C-shaped arc on the lower left side of the body as a guide for the parakeet's feet.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 7: Now draw the budgie's facial features. Draw the eye as a small circle inside the head. Use the initial lines as guides for placement. Draw a small dot inside the eye for the pupil and a tiny circle above it to represent glare. Add a wavy line around the eye for extra detail.
Step 8: Draw the top part of the parakeet's beak or cere to the left of the eye. The cere is somewhat triangular in shape. Sketch it lightly at first to get the structure right. Pay attention to the placement. Add a tiny line inside of it for the bird's nostril.
Step 9: Draw the beak under the cere using the initial lines as guides for placement. The budgie's beak is basically a curved triangle-like shape. Notice the position of it is entirely on the upper left side of the head. Sketch lightly at first and only darken the lines when you get the structure right. Draw a small line on the bottom right side as a the bottom part of the bird's beak.
