Step 6: On the lower, right side of the body, draw a long, pointy, triangular shape as a guide for the Gouldian finch's tail.
Step 7: Under the body, draw two long lines that curve downward as guides for the Gouldian finch's feet.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing of a Gouldian finch.
Step 8: Inside the head, draw a small circle for the eye. Use the initial lines as guides to place the bird's eye. Draw a few curved lines around the eye for the bare skin and eyelid. Inside the Gouldian finch's eye, draw a tiny circle off to the side for a highlight and a bigger circle in the middle for the pupil.
Step 9: Darken the top part of the angled line on the left for the first part of the finch's beak. Make the line curvier. Draw a short line across the middle of the shape for the mouth. Darken the bottom part of the initial guide for the lower half of the beak. Add another short line at the bottom that extends the beak inside the bird's head. Draw a series of short strokes along the right side of the beak for the feathery base.
