Once you draw the shape of the tomtit's feet, you need to separate its fingers with three fingers upfront and one curving behind the branch. Next, draw the feather pattern on the bird's wing and tail. Lastly, draw the lines on the tomtit's chest and head that will separate the white and black parts of its feathers coloring.
