Step 1

Budgie is a small parrot, and can imitate people’s speech very well! To draw one, start by shaping the top arch of the head with a curved line. Place a downward and left oblique line behind the arch drawn on the nape of the neck. The beak can be drawn with a small curved triangle in front, with a small oval above it.

Step 2

Now draw the eyes by making a circle right behind the beak. Draw a small teardrop shape below the eye to add the unique color swatch that Budgies have. Draw the cheeks by creating a curved line starting at the bottom of the beak, and slanting down and to the left, before curving up and to the left.

Step 3

Next, we draw the wings! Start with an oblique line going down and to the left from the back of the bird’s neck. It should be a long line, joining at one point with another drawn up and to the right, extending out of the wing with a few bumps to indicate feathers. Finish the wing shape with a dome near the top, connecting it into a large, long teardrop shape. Now add loops around the wings to create separate feathers.

Step 4

Now, draw the chest with a curve down and back, starting just below your bird’s ‘chin’.

Step 5

To draw the feet, create two crescent lines, one above the other, connecting at the outer ends. Add some small points at the top to create the claws and a line above the two pyramids to imply connection to the body.

Step 6

The final step is to draw the tail. From near the end of the wing, draw a downward curve, going down to a point. From the instep you drew, draw another curved line tangent to the first line. Add a few more lines in between the two to form the individual feathers.
