This instructable will show you how to draw that iconic "Red Bird", step-by-step. The Red Bird is the first bird that you encounter on your Angry Birds journey to smartphone finger-flickin' addiction. It will not take long until you realize that this bird is about as effective as throwing ping pong balls at an artillery bunker. Nonetheless, here is an easy-to-follow, step-by-step drawing of the Red Bird. Now, just grab a pen/pencil/marker and click through each step and draw accordingly. Before you know it, you will have sketched your very own Angry Bird!

Step 1: Step 1 - Drawing the Body

Start your sketch by drawing the number "3" basically sideways/horizontally, instead of right-side up (this will be the bird's hair). Then draw a circle for the the angry birds body as you see here.

Step 2: Step 2 - Drawing the Tail-Feathers

Simply draw three rectangles on the left-lower side of the circle. This will be the tail-feather. *Hint - Shape the rectangles at the ends as shown below*

Step 3: Step 3 - Drawing the Upper Beak

To draw the beak it helps me to think of it as a Hershey's Kiss that melted on its right side (I hope you follow me? lol) That is what the shape reminds me of anyways.

Step 4: Step 4 - Lower Beak

This part is basically just mimicking the previous step, but upside down. Just don't forget to leave that little space on the left side of the beak so it will showcase the grimacing face the Red Bird is known for.

Step 5: Step 5 - Drawing the Eye Lids

Short and Sweet... Just draw two mirrored capital L's. One drawn normal, one drawn backwards.

Step 6: Step 6 - Drawing the Eyebrows

Just drawing a blocky-style V with the valley of the V meeting at the top of the eyelids.

Step 7: Step 7 - Drawing the Eyes

To draw the eyes, start a the top of the eye brow and draw a slightly curved line towards the end of the eyelid. Do the same for each side of the brow. After the eyes are drawn simply finish it off with a black dot on each side to represent the pupils.

Step 8: The Finished Product

Color in the spaces if you like or take a crayon to this baby. Either way, at this point you should have a decent looking Angry Bird that you can draw in a snap. Now you have something to doodle at your next office meeting, class, lecture, etc. Enjoy!
