Draw an inverted triangle and a small circle beside it for the beak. Then, add an oval-shaped body.
Draw two lines above the body for the wing outline and a trapezoid on the left part for the tail.
Draw the feet using overlapping curved lines. At the end of the toes, use two short, curved lines to form a curved triangle shape. Add texture to the feet by drawing several short lines across each toe.
From the first wing, extend a number of curved lines. The lines toward the tip of the wing should enclose long, narrow shapes. Those near the base of the wing should be shorter, wider, and more “U” shaped.

There are about sixty different kinds of eagles in the world, and they live on every continent except snowy Antarctica. Eagles are birds of prey and are known for their amazing eyesight – some eagles can spot a mouse scurrying in the grass from over a mile away. Eagles have even been trained to hunt for sport through the art of falconry.

Notice that each step in this drawing how-to guide is accompanied by a detailed illustration. In each picture, the lines highlighted in blue represent those added in the current step. Lines added in previous steps are shown in black. Notice, too, that some lines, called guide lines, will need to be erased as you complete the drawing.
Some of the largest species of eagles can achieve a wingspan of 3.35 meters, or nearly eleven feet. The large wings allow the eagle to soar high in the sky on thermal air columns, using little energy and rarely flapping its wings. These graceful birds have become the symbols of sports teams, schools, and even entire nations. The most famous eagle may be the bald eagle, the national bird of the United States of America.

Draw three quadrilaterals, one slightly bigger than the other two. Add two small circles for the feet.
Draw a second series of short, curved lines meeting in jagged points, extending from the belly of the eagle.
Follow the steps in method 3. It will help you draw a cartoon bird. You could also try tweaking it if necessary.
Most of the 60 species of eagles exist in Eurasia and Africa. They have extremely keen eyesight which enables them to spot potential prey from a very long distance. Many species lay two eggs, but the older, larger chick frequently kills its younger sibling once it has hatched.
The parents take no action to stop the killing. The eaglets do not develop adult markings until their third year, when they leave parental protection and seek their own mates and territories. Their nests can become enormous, measuring up to ten feet across and weighing well over 1,000 pounds.
Complete the head, body, and feet based on the outlines, darken the necessary outlines and draw the details.
Draw two long, curved lines extending from the head and neck of the eagle. Allow the lines to meet in a rounded point.
Add details to the head, like eyes and feathers. The feathers can be outlined using zigzag lines.
To the right of the oval, extend a series of connected, curved lines, returning to the oval. This enclosed shape will form the feathers of the eagle’s neck.

Based on the outlines, draw the head and beak along with the eyes. Make pointed curves below the head to complete it.
Draw a long, curved line extending from the large oval. Between the end of the line and the oval, draw a series of connected, curved lines to form the feathers of the wing.
