Ever heard that sometimes annoying “twit-twoo, twit-twoo,” in the late hours of the evening? They are calling for their mates to come as Big Owl has spotted their favorite meal—a mouse in the underbrush, in fact there seems to be a nest scratching around with the poor mice not knowing their fate!
There are some lovely owl drawings on the Pinterest site, in fact I have many images there from pencil sketches to pen and ink studies. Shoot over there and copy a few to get ideas.
Owls are fairly simple to draw if you follow along with me in these easy steps. These are rough, quick owl drawings.
You draw the basic owl shape which is an elongated oval—like an egg that’s been stretched a bit. The most redeeming feature of the owl is of course the eyes, large and piercing. These are placed near the top of the head.
Next is the classic V-shape you see usually on the
horned owl which start from the “nose-like” beak-shape running upwards to form
the “ears” although they are not really ears. An owl would not be an owl
without those spiteful looking claws that grip their prey in a vice-grip! The
claws are just as important if you want to draw an owl realistically.
The Wise Old Owl
Does your drawing look like an owl? You can use these basics also for cartoon owls which I will put up here soon. Meanwhile get drawing owls.
