     * The eyes are half way between the top of the head and the chin,.
     * The nose is halfway between the eyes and the chin.
     * The mouth is half way between the nose and the chin.
A little of the cheek on the far side of the nose will show.

CLOTHING
The clothing should wrap around the body and show some of the lines of the body; this gives her a sense of movement. The skirt goes all the way to the ground and hides her feet. There is a second skirt or apron around the waist.  If you want to draw feet then do not give her shoes.  Her blouse will be white but she has a black vest over it.  A shawl or wrap will go over the shoulders or around the back. Give the skirt lots of folds or pleats.

DETAILS
Do the hair last with a lot of waves and curls; draw a hat or cloth over her head it could be a rectangle or triangle. The hand is like a square,  Give her a basket or shepherd's staff to hold that way the picture starts to tell a story.

How To Draw A Toucan Bird, Free Printable Worksheet

These beautiful birds are fun to draw and this drawing worksheet offers one way to draw a picture that the young artist can be proud of while developing confidence in drawing.

FIRST, A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT: Do not get discouraged if your drawings do not turn out the way you hoped they would learning to draw takes practice and time. A true artist is harder on themselves than anybody else so remember keep drawing that way your skill will catch up to your talent. Come back often and try some of my other projects- soon you will be making wonderful pictures.



To print this worksheet just highlight it and send it to your printer or save to your device to print later.

BEGINNING
The body is shaped like a cone on its side. Draw it with a curved line for the chest, next a straight horizontal line at the bottom of the curve going back as far as the curve went high, this line should tilt down just slightly. Then draw a line from the top of the curve going down to the tip of the horizontal line.

Draw a circle for the head but it is inside the top of the cone shape not above it.

The tail feathers are two straight lines going down

THE BEAK
The starting point for the beak begins at the top center of the cone shape where the head is.  From there draw a long slowly curving line from the head out past the back of the tail. The bottom of the beak starts just below the first line even with the top of the head going almost straight back, if it curves a little that is OK since some toucans have a little curve in the bottom. The line that divides the top from the bottom is nearer the bottom by two/thirds, and curves downward at the end.

DEVELOPING FORM:
The wing is a curving line from below the chin all the way to the start of the tail.
The feet have two toes going forward and two going back. Start them out like stick figures then draw around them to give them thickness. There are bumps at the joints.
The eye is high on the head and near the beak. It is a dark circle with a lighter circle around it.
Then end of the tail is rounded.

COLORING:
The toucan is mostly black but do not color him black if you can help it use gray if you can, and then use a little black for the shadows and details.
The legs and feet are blue.
There is a white area on the chest like a baby's bib.
Some toucans have a white stripe at the beginning of the tail.
The bill is very colorful. Mostly green but the tip is red. There is orange on the upper bill and green with some blue on the bottom. You cannot make a mistake because there are many different kinds of toucans and they all have different colors on their beaks.

How to Draw A Robot Dog, Free Worksheet.


BEGINNINGS:
Use some basic shapes to work out the ideas. Our example is a beagle like robot with short legs and a medium body. Use circles to get a rough peanut shape for the body, draw lightly since you will be erasing later. The head starts like a teardrop pointing sideways. Use stick figure technique to get the legs positioned.

DEVELOPING THE DETAILS:
The body is more boxy so go over the peanut shape with some straight lines. Go around the stick figure legs and make them wider. Add circles for nuts, bolts and for hinges.

DEVELOPING THE HEAD:
Use an oval for the ears. Draw a rectangle for the nose and snout. Sketch a narrower rectangle for the  lower jaw. Draw a window for the eyes it could be round or any shape you want.  Go around these basic shapes again to make them look more dog like but not too much.

DETAILS
Add buttons and knobs and antenna.

SHADING:
Use shading technique to give the robot dog roundness and thickness. The legs an the far side are in shadow and so they are darker. Find some places to make dark for contrast.

The bottom line is not really curved but is made up of three lines that are almost straight. One for the tail to the waist, the second is from the waist going to the neck or jaw, and the third is from the jaw to the tip

FINS.
There are more than one kind of orca and they have the back fin in different places some are in the middle and some are more forward. The Orca fin is like a triangle but narrow, draw it with two curving lines curving backward. The two front fins are large ovals.

WATER
The splash is a lot of lines that curl back and forth. There are layers of splash inside layers. To make the splash look white and foamy make the water dark.The water is darker in the foreground near the bottom and lighter at the top near the horizon. The mountains can be any way you want

COLORING
The orca is black but don' start with black if you have grey do it all in grey first then do the darkest areas in black and leave some grey so it has a rounded look. There is whie behind teh ear, under the chin and under the belly.
