Step 6: Add a few more lines to complete the guide for the pigeon's body. A couple of curved lines at the top form the neck and a long thin arc on the lower left side forms the tail.
Step 7: Add a couple of lines under the pigeon's body as guides for the feet.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 8: Draw the pigeon's eye inside the head as a circle. Use the lines as guides for placement. In the middle of the eye, draw a big dot for the pupil. Shade the rest of the eye except for a tiny circle to represent glare. Use a value that's lighter than the pupil. Add a few lines around the eye for extra detail.
Step 9: Use the triangle-like shape as a guide to draw the pigeon's beak. Follow the basic path of the guide but make the top part of the beak curvier. Add a curved line inside for the nostril. Draw a curved line in the middle of the guide for the mouth. Draw the bottom part of the pigeon's beak by using the lines as a guide.
