STEP 1. Start this first step by drawing out some basic guidelines and shapes to form a frame for the parrot. You will first draw a circle for the head and add a vertical line in the middle. Next draw out the shape of the body which looks like a nut. Once that is done you can then draw out the guidelines for the tail, legs and branch.   STEP 2. In this next step you will start sketching out the actual shape for the birds body as shown to you here. Make sure that the lining is jagged so that you end up with feather like lines. You will then sketch out the shape of the macaw's beak and feet, and then draw a tint circle for his eye. Thicken out the shape of the tail and then add a nub of a branch to the wood he is sitting on.   STEP 3. Well you made it to the third step and you know what that means right? Yup you are almost done. What you will be doing here is detailing and defining the parrot by adding feathers and the shape of his wing. You will then draw out the markings on his face as seen and detail the beak better. Once that is done you are all set to move to the next step.   STEP 4. This is your forth step and what you will do is add more detailing definition feather shapes on his face as well as his stomach and wing. Sketch in more detail on the beak and on the toe nails as seen here. Once that is complete you can move onto your fifth and final step.   STEP 5. Now that you have made it to your last drawing step, all you will have to do is add all the detailing lines on the tree trunk like branch that he is resting upon. Once that is complete you can than start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. Once you are finished your macaw parrot should come out looking like the one you see here. All that is left to do now is add some vivid colors and your done.
