How to Draw a Stork, Step by Step

There is a superstition that where a stoke makes a nest is where people will find happiness. Whether or not you believe this, the stork grace and beauty is bound to impress anyone. Unfortunately, it might be challenging to draw a stork in real life for the city dweller, so if you'd like to draw a stork sitting in a nest, look for a suitable picture on the Internet. Before you try drawing a stork that is standing or sitting down in its nest, let's first attempt at drawing a flying stork, step by step in pencil.

Step 1

Try to expand the bird's figure so much that it takes up the entire sheet of paper. I figured it might be good to start out by first drawing an elongated oval for the stork's body. Back off a little to the right and draw a small oval for the stock's head. Connect the head to the body and for now only draw a sloped line for the legs.

Now that you got the basic contours down, drawing a stork should be easy as you add more and more details, as when putting Lego pieces together. Do a rough sketch the bird's long beak. Next draw the tail and then outline the initial contours of the wings.

Step 3

In order to make it easy on yourself, first draw the second line of the right wing, followed by the one on the left. After that you need to draw another line for the feet, with a slight curve upwards on the edge. After erasing the extra contour lines on the drawing, work some more on the beak. Let's revise the contours of the stork's beak and neck at this point. Sharpen the beak and connect it to the head with a curved line, then shade in the bird's body. In order to do this, slightly bend the bottom line of the neck.

Step 4

This step of drawing a stork is simple, but still requires some focus. After drawing the stork's legs, draw its eyeball and separate the head from the rest of the body with a distinct line. Now begin to draw the most complex element of the drawing: the wings. Sketch the smaller feathers first and then draw large feathers, a few pieces on each wing.

Step 5

Erase the extra contour lines from the wings of your stork, and start drawing wings in more detail, highlighting the large feathers. As you can see, the stork needs an extra touch. Split the beak into two parts and then highlight the bird's belly.

Stork's plumage bright colors, so it will suffice to use #2 pencil to make your drawing look realistic. However, if you want to be creative, you can use colored pencils and even paints. Be sure to add some sort of landscape below the flying stork.
