How to Draw Chickens & Hens with Easy Step by Step Drawing Lesson
First draw a circle for the eye, and a smaller circle (filled in with black) for the pupil. Around this, draw a sideways number ‘9 that isn’t completely closed, for the chicken’s head.
For the bottom of the chicken’s body draw a curved line, like a sideways letter ‘c’.
Now draw the hen’s tail by drawing a curved line similar to a sideways letter ‘J’.
Now draw a curved line for the hen’s wing feathers. Draw 2 slanted lines that sort of resemble a number ’11’. Draw a beak by drawing a sideways letter ‘v’. And draw the thing on the top of the chicken’s head, called the comb, by drawing a bunch of wiggly lines.
Draw a line through the beak for the part that opens and closes. Draw a bunch of feathers by by drawing sideways letter ‘J’ curves. Also draw the claws on each of the hen’s feet, which sort of resemble a pointy letter ‘M’ or a letter ‘V’ with a line in the center.
