How to draw a condor, a quick lesson in a video instruction and step by step still images. I have been doing drawing study of birds for about a week now. My subject is mostly birds of pray and this time I choose California condor to make a tutorial. I always thought it is a very majestic creature in its own right. It reminds me of some twisted beautiful but scary mysterious creature.
The California Condor is a New World vulture, the largest North American land bird. The plumage is black with patches of white on the underside of the wings and the head is largely bald, with skin color ranging from gray on young birds to yellow and bright orange on breeding adults. Its huge 3.0 m (9.8 ft) wingspan is the largest of any North American bird.
Birds of pray are always fascinated me, every bird has its own unique skill sets. There are wide range of diversity within this group of birds. It is amazing. This sketch is done with Photoshop CS5 and a Wacom tablet. They are my weapon of choices because it is so convenient.
Here is a final sketch of a condor. I spend about 20-25 minutes on it.
