Use layers to build your drawing.
Drawing digitally is easier and faster than traditional mediums when you use layers. Layers allow you to draw over your sketch of base drawing without having to erase it later. Layers can be found on the right side of your workspace and can be hidden or revealed by tapping on the Layers icon. You can add a new layer using the + button. Drag layers up or down to reposition them above and below one another.
Sketching the shape of the beak, body and tail.
On your first layer, draw the basic shapes of your bird. Take into consideration what your bird is perching on. Are the feet flat on the ground or wrapped around a branch?
