Step 10: Use the initial circle as a guide to draw the rest of the bird's head. Above the beak, draw a line that bulges out more than the edge of the circle for the front of the head. Below the beak, draw a line that curves inward more than the initial circle for the throat. Use a series of short strokes along the path of the circle on the right side for the feathery back of the head. Add a few more short strokes within the head and along the bottom edge of the circle for more detail on the rainbow lorikeet's feathers.
Step 11: Lightly sketch a very long, curved line along the right side of the entire body for the rainbow lorikeet's folded wing. When you get the shape and length of the line right, darken it. At the top, place the line farther away from the body and slowly curve it closer to the edge along the bottom. The tip of the wing at the bottom should stick out of the shape of the body a bit. Darken the right edge of the guide for the exterior of the folded wing. Curve the tip at the bottom a bit. Within the shape of the parrot's wing, draw a series of short, J-shaped lines for the pattern of the feathers.
Step 12: Draw the shape of the rainbow lorikeet's first foot around the short guide that's under the body and to the right. Curve the lines for the toes. At the top, draw a series of short strokes for the feathery base of the bird's leg. Add a curved, pointy shape on the tips of the toes for the nails. Add another toe on the left using a curved line.
Step 13: Use the line on the left as a guide to draw the other foot the same way. Draw the thin shape of the lorikeet's foot and toes around the guides. On the inside of the foot, draw another toe. Draw a short, pointy shape on the tip of the bird's toes for the nails. Add short strokes at the top for feathers.
Step 14: Use the initial shapes to create the rainbow lorikeet's body. Add some curved lines in the body for the feathers on the chest. Darken the outer edges of the guides on the right and on the left to add the shape of this Australian parrot's body. Darken the outer edges of the guides on the right and on the left to add the shape of the body. Use short strokes for a feathery texture. Add some short strokes along the bottom too.
