Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
For the first step of our how to draw a bald eagle tutorial, you will use a light pencil to draw some lines that will guide you for the rest of the picture.
This step will be made easier for you if you follow the reference image closely.
While carefully refering to the reference image, you can draw some rough shapes to serve as the basis for the outlines in later steps.
These guide lines will form the eagle’s head, neck, wings, body, and talons.
Once you have these pencil lines, you can use the pen to re-fill the pencil lines with some more subtle lines for the final drawing. Now draw the top of the head and beak for this step.
Step 2 – Continue to sketch the pen for your bald eagle drawing
Continuing from the previous step, you can continue to extend the pen lines for the rest of the outline of your bald eagle drawing.
As you can see in the reference image, this means you can extend the lines for the wings, tail, hooves, and other areas.
You can focus on the background elements for now, as we’ll be adding some more inside soon. Once satisfied with the stroke, you are ready for step 3!
Step 3 – Now draw some interior details for the bald eagle
This step of our tutorial on how to draw a bald eagle will help you add some inner details to your drawing.
To do this, you can start with some sharp lines on the neck for some fur detail. You can then add another jagged line on the base of the tail for more feather detail.
Step 4 – Finalize the details on the face and nails
Continuing the details for your eagle drawing, you can now draw some face and claw details to complete it nicely.
Focus on the face now, you can draw the eyes using some simple circles. You can then use a sharp curve above it to give the eagle a focused look.
Then you can perfect the mine to perfect the head. Then just add some details before continuing.
First, you can perfect the toes and claws of the eagle’s claws. You can then add some curves to the inner wings to start their feather details.
Once you’ve drawn all of these elements, you’re ready for some final details to complete!
Step 5 – Now you can add some final details to your bald eagle drawing
This fifth step of our tutorial on how to draw a bald eagle will help you add the final details before we finish with some color.
This step may look complicated, but if you follow the steps and take it slow, you’re sure to make it!
The main elements that you will be adding will mainly consist of some feathered wing details. You can achieve this look by adding rows of curves to create feathered wings.
Then there are some final details you can add to areas like the legs and tail along with other areas throughout the eagle to really complete it.
Once you’ve completed all the details we added to our eagle, you can take this image a step further by adding some of your own!
You can do this by adding or subtracting details on the eagle, by adding your own details or by drawing a beautiful background.
How would you put your own rotation on this drawing before the final step?
Step 6 – Finish your bald eagle drawing with some colors
Step 6 of our tutorial focuses on bringing some nice color to your bald eagle painting. In our reference image, we went for the typical coloration of a bald eagle.
These colors include brown, yellow, white and gray for a more realistic look. If you want a realistic look like this, you can still change it up a bit in a few ways!
These can include using different shades of these colors or by varying them up a bit.
Also, if you’ve already drawn the background of your image, you can add more splashes of color to that element.
You can also get some color variation by varying the art media you use. Watercolors and crayons can give an image a softer look, so they work great for an image like this.
Also, acrylic paints and crayons work great for more vibrant colors. How would you bring some color to this bald eagle painting to finish it off?
