Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Flamingo" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a big circle as a guide for the flamingo's body. Leave enough room at the top and bottom for the head and feet. Don't worry about the circle being perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle on the top right side as a guide for the flamingo's head. The higher up you place the circle, the longer the neck will be.
Step 3: Draw two arcs on the right side of the flamingo's head as a guide for the beak. Place the second smaller arc under the first to create the bent beak.
Step 4: Draw a curved line under the head as a guide for the flamingo's neck. Draw the line lightly at first to get the S shape right.
Step 5: Draw a long line under the body as a guide for the flamingo's leg. Bend the end a bit for the foot.
