Here’s how to draw a seagull, and have him fill up the paper. All you need to do is turn his head so his beak is actually over his back.
You can use this turned head position with any bird, especially those with long beaks. It’s a small detail, but makes a nice composition, and adds a bit of layering if you also add the fish coming down from the beak.
