Cute Turkey Drawing

A turkey drawing project is a kind of given, in any class or art room every November. But that shouldn’t mean you have only one choice, or that you have to do the same one every year.

Here’s a new tutorial that attempt to mix things up a little.

You have your fairly realistic body, but the face has kind of been put through the anime cute filter with an oversized head, beak and eye. Most students these days have been exposed to the look with Japanese cartoons, and most love to draw eyes with the little shiny spots inside. It is a fun way to feel like an actual cartoonist, so I don’t blame them!
