Step 6: Draw a few more lines to complete the guide for the body. First draw two curved lines that connect the head to the body to form the neck. Then draw an angled, triangle- like line on the top, right side of the body as a guide for the hen's tail.
Step 7: Under the hen's body, draw two angled lines as guides for the legs. The lines should be similar to a backward letter L. Don't draw them too long.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.
Step 8: Inside the hen's head, lightly sketch a small circle for the eye. Use the initial lines as guides for placement. When you get the size and shape right, darken the lines. Inside the eye, off to the side, draw a tiny circle for glare and a big dot in the middle for the pupil. Add a few more lines to the side of the eye to make the shape wider. Draw a few curved lines around the eye for the folds of skin. Add even more lines around the eye for extra detail on the bare wrinkled skin.
Step 9: Use the small arc on the left as a guide to draw the chicken's beak. Draw the beak inside the arc. Follow the basic curvature of the arc but add an extra bump on top. Add a line through the middle that stretches toward the inside of the head for the mouth. The beak should be pointy at the tip. Add a curved line around the mouth on the right side. Draw a curved line at the bottom to complete the hen's beak and a small slit at the top for the nostril.
