How to Draw a Cute Baby Chick Step by Step
Kids or grown ups alike can follow these simple steps with this cute Chick Drawing guide! I would recommend creating this with a pencil, as you can erase if you have any mistakes. But you can always draw over him with an ink Pen or marker when you are done, to define him some more. Have fun creating some Baby Chicks!
Chick Drawing Step 1
Step 1: Let’s draw the Baby Chick’s body. Start by drawing 2 overlapping circles. A smaller one for the Head and a larger one for the body. You can trace around some round objects in your home if you like, in order to get perfectly round circles. Easy!
Step 2: Next let’s add some details for the Chick’s face. Draw a beak on the head with a line through it, where the beak would open and close. Draw a round circle for the eye and fill it in, leaving a white spot for a reflection. He has a sort of funny-ish quirky eye brow just above his eye, that makes him look a bit like an angry Chick! You can decide if you want to shape it differently for a different expression. Add a curved line from the bottom of his face over to about the midway point on his body, for his chest area.
Step 3: Now you’ll need to do a bit of erasing, to remove the intersecting lines. Add a little line on his beak as a highlight. Create a fluffy tail area and sketch in the tops of his legs.
Step 4: A little more erasing is needed here as well in his tail area, and where his leg connects to his body. Draw 2 feet as shown above. At this point you have a simple and cute Cartoon Chick Drawing, you could stop here if you like or continue on below to add more detail.
Step 5: We just need to draw in his tiny wing as seen above. As an optional step you can sketch in some grass, a flower and a little cross hatch area under his feet. So cute!
The only thing left to do now is to color in your adorable Baby Chick! Go grab your markers, Crayola crayons, oil pastels or color pencils, or whatever you have on hand, and finish your artwork masterpiece! I colored this guy in with a soft yellow shade, but you can let your creativity go wild and use whatever colors you like! You get to decide!
