Sketch out shapes for the head and the body, including facial marker lines. Refine the head's shape and add a tuft of hair on top if the penguin is a baby. Draw in large eyes using the guidelines and finish the head with the beak and cheek bumps.
For the body, add a small pair of wings and a small amount of definition for the legs. Finish the drawing with the penguin's feet, then add color.
Another version of the penguin involves an egg shape that incorporates the head and body. The top of the egg houses the facial features, while ovals added at the center sides and the bottom represent the penguin's wings and feet.
