STEP 1. Okay are you ready for another fun drawing lesson or what? Good, then start this first step by drawing out some basic guidelines and shapes for the frame of your pretty bird. Draw two arched half circles for the fan like tail and then cap it off at the bottom as shown. You will then draw a small circle for the head and then a long line for the neck. Lastly add the shape of the body and the leg lines as well.   STEP 2. Okay now in this next step you will start drawing out the long oval like shapes for his tail feathers and then a puffy looking behind feather shape. Once that is done draw out the actual shape and thickness of the birds body and then draw out his legs and feet. Once you are done add a hint of a wing line.   STEP 3. You are already on your third step which means you are almost done. What you will do next is draw out and add more feather shapes as shown to you here and then give this peacock a cute beak and wide open eye. Add three curls on his head and then move to the next step. See so far this is pretty easy right?   STEP 4. Wow you are already on the fourth step which means you now only have two more steps to go. What you will do here is add another set of feather shapes which are larger then the other two sets you drew previously. Once that is done you will then draw out more shape to the butt end of the tail and then move to the last drawing step.   STEP 5. Well you have done it! You are now on your last drawing step and what you will do now is draw out all the remaining feathers that are called the "eyes". This is very easy to do. All you have to do is draw straight lines coming from behind the peacock and draw out a tear wide tear drop shape for the feather. Add detail inside of the feather shape until it resembles and eye. You can then erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. Once your complete your bird should come out looking like the one you see here. All you have to do now is color him in to add the vivid brightness that makes this bird unique. I hope you liked this lesson on how to draw a peacock bird step by step.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3.
