STEP 1. Let us start by making a few circles. One for the head (which is smallest), and another for the body. You will then draw the wing guideline as well as the neck line which attaches the two shapes together.   STEP 2. Starting with the head guide, begin sketching out the shape of the mockingjay's head and then the beak. The beak should be long and pointed and there should also be a tuft or crown on top of the birds head. Draw and color in a simple eye, and then make the marking line for the beak and face. Sketch the shape of the neck and some of the chest.   STEP 3. You will draw the thick but stubby legs of the mockingjay like so, and then draw in the feet and all the toes.   STEP 4. Here is where we start getting down to the nitty gritty. Begin by sketching the wing bone line or motion, and then from there, you will begin sketching out the large wing. The feathers should be drawn in a slow manner to make sure that it comes out neatly. The feather tips should start out large, but then they get smaller the more you move down to the base of the body.   STEP 5. Draw in the other wing like so, and then sketch in some of the feathery detailing like so.   STEP 6. Before drawing the rest of the mockingbird's body, we will need to sketch in the definition and texture detailing to the body we have already drawn. Start with the wing and add all the small feathers, and then sketch in the even smaller feathers on the chest and belly like you see here.   STEP 7. Now we can proceed to draw in the rest of the body as well as the slanted tipped tail. Draw feathering lines to make the tail defined, and then clean up your drawing.   STEP 8. Here you have the finished drawing of a mockingjay from the Hunger Games series or trilogy!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8.
