You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
For the first step of the tutorial on how to draw a falcon, we will draw the head of the bird.
The falcon has a relatively small and rounded head with a small beak, so for the outline of the upper part we will use a smooth, rounded line.
Then you can use some smaller curves for the left protruding beak.
The eye of the falcon will be drawn with a horizontal curve above, and it will have a rounded bottom half. Use some more rounded lines to create its large inner pupil to complete the eye.
Finally, draw the bottom of the bird’s neck, then we can move on to step 2 of the tutorial.
Step 2 – Now draw the wings and some details of the body
In the second part of your falcon drawing, we’ll add the wings as well as a bit of the body.
For the outline of the wing, we’ll use lots of thick, curved lines that connect together to create the contour.
The wing will be thin and pointed, and as shown in the reference image, the angle will be almost horizontal.
Then use some more curved lines to stretch the bust down a bit.
The reason that we connected these curves instead of using a solid line is to make it look like these areas are covered with feathers. Then you’ll be ready to move on to step 3 of the tutorial!
Step 3 – Now draw the legs and start the tail of the falcon
We will now work with the bottom half of the bird for this step of the how to draw a falcon tutorial.
For the top half of the legs, use some more curved but sharp lines to create a furry top half.
For the leather bottom half, use some bumpy lines that extend down, then you can draw the toes with the sharp claw at the end.
We’ll also use some circles to create a rocky surface on which the falcon is standing.
Once you’ve finished drawing, finish this step by drawing a few spiky feathers sticking out under the wings, as this will be the beginning of the tail.
Step 4 – Next, draw the remaining tail for the falcon
We’ll perfect the outline of this falcon in this step, and then you’ll be ready for some final details in the next step.
The main thing we will focus on in this step will be finishing the tail that you started in the previous step.
To complete this tail, simply draw a few long, straight feathers sticking out from the back. There will be a long one above and two smaller ones below.
Then it will be the final details in the next step!
Step 5 – Add the final details to your falcon drawing
Soon we’ll start coloring your drawing, but first, we have some final touches to add to this step of the how to draw a falcon tutorial.
It already looks great, but we’ll make it look even better by painting some texture details on the body.
They can be drawn using some small, sharp lines all over the hairy parts of the body, and these lines will help make it look more textured.
Once they’re drawn, you’re ready for the final step! You can also keep this drawing going by adding your own additional details and elements.
You can paint the background or add some other objects and animals to interact with. We can’t wait to see how you accomplish this!
Step 6 – Finish your falcon drawing with color
Now you are ready to complete this falcon drawing as you color. Real life falcons are pretty tight-lipped in their coloration, and we used that look in our example image.
We used various shades of fawn and light brown to color it, and by using smaller brown spots we accentuated the texture details.
You can use our example images as a guide if you want similar colors, but you should also feel free to use your own color choices. What colors and mediums will you choose for yourself?
