Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Rooster (Cartoon)" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two short, diagonal lines for the cartoon rooster's eyebrows. Sketch lightly at first. When you get the shape and angles right, make the lines darker and thicker. Curve the outer tips of the eyebrows down and the inner tips up.
Step 2: Under each eyebrow, draw a curved line for the bottom of the rooster's eyes. The eye on the right should be smaller because of the perspective. Inside each eye, close to the eyebrows, add a dot for the pupils.
Step 3: Add the beak by first drawing a curved line under the eye on the left. Continue drawing the line toward the bottom right so that it forms the tip of the beak. Draw the rest of the rooster's mouth as a wavy line that stretches to the left. Add a slit at the top for the nostril.
Step 4: Under the top part of the beak, draw a V-shaped line for the bottom part. Inside, draw smaller V-shaped line for the open mouth. Inside the rooster's mouth, draw a couple of small, curved lines for the tongue.
Step 5: Above the eyes, draw a curved line for the first part of the fleshy crest called a comb. The curved line should be similar to a tilted letter U. Draw another curved line at the top for the second part of the rooster's comb.
