How to Draw an American Goldfinch – Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Sketch two curves, one long and one short, with ends meeting at a sharp point. Draw a mirror such that each shape’s short curves meet at a sharp point.

Step 2: Create a bend close to where the beak ends, with a long hook extending to the head’s tip. Draw a dot next to it with one curve underneath and one to the side of it. To create a cap, add another curve to the top of the head.

Step 3: Sketch a lengthy downward curve starting at the back of the head. Add multiple more curves that come to a sharp point at the end of this one.

Step 4: Add another curve for the belly at the base of the neck.

Step 5: Draw two downward and forward lines beneath the belly, ending in three forward and one back lines. Repeat. From the legs to the back, keep the belly curve going, leaving a tiny opening.

Step 6: Draw one big curve and one small curve with a sharp point at the end in the gap. Done!.
