STEP 1. Begin by making two shapes, one circle for the head, and an egg shape for the body like so.   STEP 2. Next, begin sketching out the actual form of the cardinal's face and head. Notice how they have a spiked crown of feathers on top of their head. Draw the fluffy spot in the middle of the neck like so.   STEP 3. Here all you have to do is draw in the mask lining which will be colored in black when you are done with the drawing. Once the lining is made, draw out the beak, as well as the eye. Be sure to color in the eye.   STEP 4. Draw in the nicely rounded wing. Make sure that there is a couple layers of feathers that make up the wings form.   STEP 5. Now let's start drawing out the body almost completely. Start with making the lining for the back of the neck, then draw the raised feathers along the lower part of the back. Follow up with the tail feathers, then draw the chest feathers. Add detailing to the birds wing, then you can proceed to step six.   STEP 6. Draw out the small branch that this red cardinal is sitting or resting on like so, and be sure to add a few small leaves.   STEP 7. Finish things up by adding detail and definition to the branch like so, then draw in the small leaves at the ends of the small branches. Erase the mistakes so you end up with a clean image for coloring.   STEP 8. Here is what your cardinal looks like when you are finished. Color it in to perfection and show people what you have done.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8.
