How to draw a cute chick with a pencil step-by-step drawing tutorial

Updated: Feb 17

Today, we will learn to draw a cute small chick in our drawing tutorial. As usual, we will learn to draw the chick step-by-step. For our drawing, we show the chick just born next to the broken eggshell.


Step 1. Outline the body and the eggshell.

First, we want to outline the main composition of our drawing to position and size the eggshell and the chick correctly in our drawing.

Step 4. Draw the chick's down. Draw the chick's eyes and start hatching.

Chicks have small, underdeveloped feathers. These soft feathers are called down. Down keeps the chicks warm. As chicks get bigger, they grow adult feathers. They lose their down as the adult feathers grow. In this step, we start to draw our chicks down. We draw the eye of the chick in more detail. Then, we start to add hatching to our drawing to show shading.
