STEP 1. An important part of drawing a typical bird wing, is to understand the feather placement to create accurate wings. Primaries are attached to the 'hand' part of the wing; basically imagine your fingers as feathers. Primaries usually have 9 - 11 feathers in their region. Secondaries are feathers that are attached to the forearm region of the wing; imagine your armpit and elbow covered in feathers.   STEP 2. Lets start drawing our eagle. Make some shapes for the head, torso, wings, and legs. Once those basic framing shapes are drawn out, you can then draw in the beak.   STEP 3. Now you can start sketching out the shape of the head, and then some of the wing parts like the shoulder dip. Don't forget to add that jagged look in back of the head which is some feathery detailing for texture.   STEP 4. Sketch out the shape and style of the eagles beak like so, and then draw out the eye. Since this is a basic easy eagle drawing, your bird is going to look a bit cartoony. When the face is done, you can begin drawing out the wings in full detail. Remember what we were talking about in the tip steps.   STEP 5. Finish drawing out the eagles eye, and then add some fin detailing to the beak like you see here. When that is done, sketch out the wide spread eagle tail, and then the thighs and one of the legs and clawed feet. Sketch in some feathery detailing like you see here.   STEP 6. You have now reached your last drawing step. All you have to do now is draw in the other foot, add some claws or nails, and then draw the thigh line to the leg. Erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one to clean up your newly drawn bird.   STEP 7. When you are all done your eagle should look like the one you see here. Now you can color it in, and you will have yourself a simple looking eagle that still holds its bold presence.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
