This post about step by step illustration was inspired by my being approached by a fellow blogger who would like to publish a post about me. She obviously loves illustration and likes to promote it and show insights into the world of illustration. The post will consist I think of an on-line interview and a step by step illustration.
One I haven’t shared with you is how to draw a peacock! So the following shows step by step sketches! Good luck!
Step 1 – sketch some basic shapes to form the skeleton of your drawing:
Step 2 – Start to add smaller basic shapes that will become feet, facial details, etc
Step 3 – Now you can start to add finer detailing on feet, crest, and tail.
Step 4 – Now start to sketch out very lightly the shapes within the fan of feathers
Step 5 – At this point finer detail to these shapes can be added.
Step 6 – Now that you’re really comfortable with the shape, you can finish off with much finer detail and maybe give a sense of where or what the peacock is standing.
