Turkey Fun and Easy Landscape Step-out #FunAndEasyLandscape #Step-out #DrawingTutorial @ZebraPenUS

With the U.S. Thanksgiving Holiday coming up, it was mandatory that I create a turkey step-out.  It was hard!  Turkeys are a complexly (don't know if that was a word before, but it is now) built creature and deciding what was essential and what wasn't took me a while.

And push come to shove, even simplified you may have trouble with this one.  Birds are all about proportion and even boiled down to simple shapes, you will probably be unhappy until you feel the proportions are right.

I came up with a chart that gives you a few tips on what to think about as you draw your turkey.  Remember - these proportions don't have to be exact.  There's an old saying that 'close only counts in horseshoes and hand-grenades,' meaning you have to get things exactly right unless the rules or explosive force allow otherwise.  Well, in art both the rules and the explosive force of your expression DO allow otherwise.
