How to Draw Angry Birds (Yellow)
Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw a Yellow Angry Bird from Angry Birds. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: To draw the Yellow Angry Bird, start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start drawing the Yellow Angry Bird by sketching a triangle. The triangle doesn’t have to be perfect; it will only be used as a guide for the Yellow Angry Bird's head/body.
Step 2: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the triangle. Draw one horizontal line near the bottom and one vertical line that begins at the top and slopes slightly to the right. These will be construction lines that will help you place the Yellow Angry Bird's features later on.
Step 3: Using the construction lines as guides, draw a diamond shape where they intersect. The shape will look kind of like a kite. This is a guide for the Yellow Angry Bird’s beak.
Step 4: That's it for the initial sketch of the Yellow Angry Bird! You have the basic Yellow Angry Bird shape, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil when drawing in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
Step 5: Using the initial diamond guide, tighten the shape of the beak. Make the points of the diamond more round and the lines more curvy. Draw the top half of the beak so it curves over and overlaps the smaller bottom half.
Step 6: Draw a semi-circle for the eye on the left side of the beak above the horizontal construction line. Do the same on the right side but hide part of it behind the Yellow Angry Bird's beak.
Step 7: Over each eye, draw a long narrow rectangle that slopes toward the beak a bit. These are the Yellow Angry Bird's eyebrows. Inside the eyes, draw in two big dots for the eyes.
Step 8: Tighten the shape of the Yellow Angry Bird's body by darkening it and making the points of the triangle more round and the connecting lines more curvy so it seems to be bulging out.
Step 9: Draw some feathers on the top of the Yellow Angry Bird's head by drawing a series of curved triangles that look like spikes. Draw a total of four spikes with the middle ones being the biggest.
Step 10: Draw a similar tuft of feathers for the Yellow Angry Bird's tail on the left side of the body and above the horizontal construction line. Only draw three spikes this time.
Step 11: That’s it! You now have a nice sketch of the Yellow Angry Bird. You can stop at this quick drawing for a rough, sketchy look or go for a more finished look by continuing to the step below.
Step 12: For a more finished, inked look, carefully go over the final sketch lines with a pen or marker. Wait for the ink to dry, and then get rid of every pencil mark with an eraser. You now have a finished inked drawing of a Yellow Angry Bird! You can stop here or go to the final step to complete your Angry Bird drawing.
Final Step: For a completely finished Yellow Angry Bird drawing, you have to color it. You can use markers, color pencils or even crayons! Color the eyebrows brown and the beak yellow-orange. The Yellow Angry Bird's head and tail feathers are black. Color the face/body yellow except for a small semi-circle at the bottom. That’s it! You now have a completed drawing of the Yellow Angry bird.
