How to draw a Penguin?

Let’s start learning how to draw a penguin in the easiest way step by step.


Let’s start by drawing the beak of the penguin. Draw two curved lines parallel to each other and unite them at the end to form a sharp beak.


Draw another line inside the beak. This will represent the mouth opening of the penguin.


Now, we are going to draw the cute little Dot inside the beak of the penguin. 


Let’s draw the head of a penguin. For this purpose, trace the curved line from the middle of the beak and extend it down to reach at the level of the beak. 


Draw two small circular shaped eyes of the penguin as shown in the figure. 


It’s my turn to draw the wings of a penguin. Extend the same line which was used to draw the head and then curve it to reach the mid-length. This rod-shaped line suggests the wing of the penguin.


To complete the body of the penguin, draw the curved line from the beak to the bottom. Now, curve this line and join it to the wing of the penguin. This will form the belly of the penguin.


Let’s draw the feet of a penguin. Draw two rectangles adjacent to each other. These will serve the pads of penguins.


Draw an oval shaped figure inside the belly of a penguin. YES! The drawing of a super cute penguin is complete! You can draw penguins by this super easy method.
