Gather Your Supplies
The first step to drawing a Thanksgiving turkey is to make sure you have all the necessary supplies. You will need a pencil, eraser, paper, and colored pencils or markers if you want to add some color to your drawing.
Start with the Body
Begin by drawing the body of the turkey. Draw an oval shape for the body and a smaller oval for the head. Connect these two shapes with a curved line to create the neck of the turkey.
Add the Feathers
Next, it’s time to add the feathers. Draw long, curved lines coming from the top of the turkey’s body to create the feathers. Make sure to vary the length and direction of the lines to give the turkey a realistic look.
Draw the Wing
Now it’s time to draw the turkey’s wing. Draw a curved line coming from the side of the turkey’s body and another line for the bottom of the wing. Add some feathers to the wing by drawing curved lines coming from the top of the wing.
Draw the Legs and Feet
Draw two long, thin lines coming from the bottom of the turkey’s body for the legs. Add some curved lines to create the toes and claws on the feet.
Add the Details
Now it’s time to add some details to your turkey. Draw a beak and a wattle on the turkey’s head. Add an eye to give the turkey some personality. You can also add some texture to the feathers by drawing small lines throughout the feathers.
Color Your Turkey
If you want to add some color to your turkey, use colored pencils or markers to color in the feathers, beak, and wattle. You can use shades of brown, red, and yellow to create a realistic-looking turkey.
Practice Makes Perfect
Don’t worry if your turkey doesn’t turn out perfectly the first time. Drawing takes practice, so keep trying until you create a turkey you’re proud of.
Remember, drawing should be fun! Don’t worry too much about making everything perfect. Just enjoy the process and have fun creating your Thanksgiving turkey.
