Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Draw the head and face. The swallow head can be drawn like a dome with a sharp triangular beak pointing outwards. A large tuft, or plumage, shows where the head meets the body. A simple circle above the beak shows the swallowing eye.
Draw the wings as a long, round shape, ending in as many feathers as on the neck.
Add another layer of wings, diagonal and below the back of the first wing. These will also end up in the plumage of the coat.
Draw the tail. Use a long slope from the end of the large wing to a point and meet again with the smaller diagonal wings.
Draw the body. Connect the back of the head to the larger upper wing, then draw a soft L-shaped line from below the neck to below the tail and the smaller wing.
Draw wings and tail on the other side of the swallowing body. These will be small lines that only display bits of the edges of the wings and tail, just like the lines you drew on the front.
Finally, draw the feet. Two slanted diagonal lines from the bottom of the body make the legs, while a small crescent shape becomes the swallow leg. Coloring the bird.
