This is a basic shape of the sparrow but we want to draw here a realistic sparrow. So to draw a realistic sparrow, I am using here a refference image to draw it very realistically. We have to do some changes in the shape of the body according to the refference image. Here we start.

Step 1: Draw the head shape

Because prisma colour pencil are wax based so we have to blend it. You can use a blender pencil or baby oil or paint thinner to blend colour. l am using here baby oil.

If you are using a paint thinner or baby oil then leave the paper for half an hour to dry.

Step 7 : Draw the beak and the eyes of the bird
