Description: I'm going to try and knock out all of my bird tutorial requests this month starting with this tutorial. I originally drew a flying great horned owl a while ago but someone requested a portrait of one. So, since I've improved since the last time I drew this majestic bird I decided to give it a shot! Enjoy!
Description: Now, start your details at the eyes. Use a 2B pencil for dark lines and a 4B pencil for the darkest shading, like in the pupils. Use a 5H pencil for the light parts of the eyes and the feather details. Use an F pencil for general shading and details.
Description: After you finish up the eye area move up to the forehead. I went ahead and blended in my shading with a blending stump then erased in some spots for the light feathers. After that start shading in the areas above the eyes. Us 2B and F pencils for the dark feathers and 5H and F for the light ones. Only use a 4B pencil for the darkest values. You can also start building up your background with a 4B pencil.
Description: Finish shading the top half of the head then move on to the beak. Start by blending in your shading. If the beak seems too large or too small fix it during this step before you start final details.
Description: Finish up the drawing by shading in the rest of the feathers, cleaning up your details, and smoothing out your background. I hope you all enjoy this one. Leave any comments or questions below!
