When you need something cute and sweet for a Valentine card, it’s time to learn how to draw Tweety Bird. The messages will just kind of write themselves.
Tweety (also known as Tweety Pie and Tweety Bird) is a yellow canary in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series. He made his first appearance in 1942 in “A Tale of Two Kitties”, directed by Bob Clampett, but was not paired with Sylvester The Cat until five years later. The 1947 cartoon “Tweetie Pie” pitted them against each other for the first time. The cartoon, which won an Academy Award, was the start of many short cartoons to come.
This Tweety tutorial is perfect for young artists as he is made from some very symmetrical simple shapes that are easy to draw. The oversized head is also a good lesson about proportion, as animals with large heads will always have a cute baby-like quality to them.
