Begin with a light pencil that you can erase easily. The first two lines will be erased later but will be a guide to start the drawing with.

First, draw a crooked "t," but the cross-bar is twice as long as the body. Imagine the letter "t" is doing a one handed push up that is what it will look like at first. The long line is for the wings and the short line is for the body.

On the line for the body draw an oval for the body of the eagle, this oval starts at the point where the two lines cross and will go halfway to the bottom of the line.

Draw a large triangle for the tail feathers below the oval on the line. Use the line to keep the triangle and the oval centered on the eagle and on the line.

Draw a circle for the head and two lines to connect the head to the line for the wing.

Draw a sweeping curved line from the bottom of the body, where the tail starts to the tip of the outside edge of the wing to finish the wing shape.

None of these lines need to be perfect, just go over them until you have a nice outline of the eagle.

Add the beak and the eyes.

The feathers take time and if you take time it will look great. There are about 24 feathers on each wing. Before you draw them make marks where you want them to be. Keep them spaced evenly except for the last (on the tip- farthest away from the body), five or six, these last feathers are more spread out.

There are rows of feathers. If you overdo it the results might not look god.

Add details to the head. The eye has a black center. The beak is a triangle but bent downward at the end.

The feet start at the bottom edge of the wing the tail. The claws look like ugly bony hands.

Color the body dark brown, leave the head white, color the beak and claws yellow.
