Hello Everyone. I hope you're all doing great.
I'd like to share this pen drawing of one of my favorite birds in the wild, the Kingfisher. I mean, What's there not to love about this beauties??
They are super fast, smart and very agile birds that love to prey on small fishes, hence their name. Their long pointy beaks help them in diving from great heights to catch their preys. Although, they're small but they are one of the wild's most fascinating birds. The drawing depicts va kingfisher sitting on a branch while awaiting its prey.

I used a black ball point pen and pelican paper for this drawing.
Here are the steps involved;

First, I drew the outline of the bird sitting on the tree branch. I also added its facial features in this stage.
Next, I shaded and added details to feathers to all parts of the bird's body.
Finally, I added some details to the tree branch on which it was sitting until I got a satisfactory result.
Thank you for reading and checking out my drawing. Stay Safe and enjoy the rest of your day.
