Step 1: Sketch Out the Idea
As always, I started off with a light sketch using a white eyeliner pencil.
Step 2: Red Parts
Then, I start filling in the parts (head, goblet, feathers) with some color, starting with red.
Step 3: Orange
Then, I went into my orange....
Step 4: Yellow
...and then yellow...
Step 5: Brown
...and finally my dark brown!
Step 6: Outlining and Detailing
Then, I used black and white to fill in the features on the turkey, including his face, goblet, and feathers, along with a few strokes of white for highlights throughout.
Step 7: Gobble-Gobble!
To pose, keep your thumb in tact, and spread the rest of your fingers out to represent the turkey's feathers!
