Step 6: At the bottom of the body, draw two lines that slope to the right for the sea hawk's tail. Close off the bottom of the shape with a shorter line.
Step 7: Under the body, near the tail, draw three short lines similar in shape to an upside-down letter Y as a guide for the osprey's foot.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.
Step 8: Inside the head, near the top, lightly sketch a small circle for the eye. Ospreys have big eyes, so don't draw the circle too small. When you get the size and position right, darken the shape. Draw two short, curved lines on the sides of the circle for the corners of the eye. Inside the raptor's eye, off to the side, draw a tiny circle for highlight. In the middle, draw a big dot for the pupil. Inside the eye, off to the side, draw a tiny circle for highlight. In the middle, draw a big dot for the pupil. Add a little bit of light value at the top of the eye. Above the eye, draw a curved line for the eyelid. Add a few more short lines around the osprey's eye for detail and creases on the skin.
Step 9: Darken the top part of the initial arc for the first part of the sea hawk's beak. At the bottom, extend the line farther down. Angle the line back up and inside the arc to create the pointy tip. Curve the line to the right for the mouth. The line should be close to the eye. Draw a few curved lines at the top for the base of the beak and the nostril.
