STEP 1. Start with a circle for the head, and then draw the lining to form the shape of the chest, and back. Next draw an egg shape on the inside of the opening you just made. After that draw a line for the beak.   STEP 2. Start sketching out the shape of the woodpeckers head, and make sure you draw a tip for the crest on the back of the head. Once that is finished you can sketch out the shape of the beak, and then under the beak.   STEP 3. Now, sketch out the shape of the birds back, and then start drawing in the stripes that are on the side of the face like you see here. Draw the line in the middle of the beak to separate the top and bottom beak.   STEP 4. Continue to sketch out the woodpeckers body which includes the neck, chest, and belly. Once that is done you can begin sketching out the wing, and be sure to add some feather line detailing as well as draw in the lining for the tree.   STEP 5. Draw more of the tree like you see and then draw a hole and color it in. Detail the tree bark like so and move to step six.   STEP 6. For your last drawing step all you have to do is draw out the rest of the woodpeckers wing, and then the tail. Be sure to show the detailed lining for the feathers as seen here. Erase all the guidelines and shapes and you are done!   STEP 7. This is what the finished drawing looks like when you are done.
