Since many of you have enjoyed our Turkey drawing tutorial that we posted the other day, I decided to do a second turkey drawing lesson for those of you who want a different cartoon-style turkey to draw. I have put together a step-by-step tutorial that will help you figure out how to draw cartoon turkeys by using simple shapes to build up this turkey’s form. This is an intermediate cartooning tutorial that kids, teens, and adults will enjoy. Even some younger children might be able to draw turkeys if you stand by to help with the instructions. Enjoy!
How to Draw Turkeys for Thanksgiving and Farm Animals Step by Step Drawing Tutorial for Kids, Teens, and Adults – VERSION 2
The above picture of a cartoon turkey is what we will be drawing step by step today. Find this drawing tutorial below. Get out a piece of paper, a pencil, and a black marker. Good luck.
Take out your piece of paper and your pencil..we are about to sketch. Look at the picture above. I know that this doesn’t look anything like the finished turkey picture that you are attempting to draw…but I will explain why the picture above looks so strange. Well, what I was trying to show you (in the picture above) was that the turkey is made up of a bunch of simple shapes. Well, I want you to be able to visualize this so you can start to draw images more easily. So take out your pencil and lightly draw the turkey’s simpler shapes the way that I did above. Don’t worry about mistakes because you can erase these later. Later, you will be using a pen or marker to outline the ‘right’ lines.
Draw a large half circle behind the turkey as well as rectangles below the body (parts of the turkey’s legs).
Draw 2 circles for the turkey’s eyes…also draw his eyelids.
Draw the turkey’s pupils and one of his eyebrows.
Now draw an oval shape for the turkey’s beak as well as a smile.
Draw the turkey’s ‘snood’ (the thing that hangs down over the turkey’s beak. You can draw it to sort of look like a spoon.
