How to Draw a Chicken Step by Step
Kids or grown ups alike can follow these simple steps with this fun Hen Drawing guide! I would recommend creating your drawing with a pencil, as you can erase if you have any mistakes. But you can always draw over it with an ink Pen or marker when you are done, to define it some more. Have fun creating some of these Hens!
Chicken Drawing Step 1
Step 1: First Draw a Spiral for the basis of the Head and draw a circle for the eye… with a filled in circle inside of it.
Step 2: Next add a large curved line for the underside of your Hen’s body. It will reach up to just under the head.
Step 3: Now you’ll sketch in another curved line for her back that curves down to her underside to create the tail.
Step 4: Now we’ll draw a 2 straight lines for her tail and another curve to define her wing. You will also make a tiny triangle for her beak and a little ruffled comb on top of her head.
Step 5: Let’s create her feet at the bottom of the lines that we made for her legs. Add in some lines on her tail and wing to define her feathers. At this point you have a simple and cute Cartoon Chicken Drawing! You could stop here if you like or continue on below to add more detail.
Step 6: We just need to add some additional detail as shown above. Some narrow strokes on her neck and under her wing to define more feathers. A few other details you can add are a curved line above her eye, and the additional detail under her beak. And lastly add some shading where you defined the feathers, especially on her tail.
The only thing left to do now is to color in your cute Hen! Go grab your markers, Crayola crayons, oil pastels or color pencils, or whatever you have on hand, and finish your artwork masterpiece! I colored in mine with a soft yellow and then added some read to her Comb and orange to her beak, but you can let your creativity go wild and use whatever colors you like! It’s totally up to you!
