Drawing something awesome is easier than you think. Just take this cute penguin for example! Acclaimed picture book creator and Taupō local Donovan Bixley shows us how to draw a penguin, in 4 easy-peasy steps
Let’s draw a penguin:
- To draw a penguin, I start with a long pear shape.
- Add circle eyes and a diamond– shaped beak.
- Use triangles for ﬂippers and feet.
- Round out the sharp corners to make the penguin softer.
