When these main shapes are developed let's get into them and try to define a line that will mark the position of the eyes and another line marking the mouth line. I have drawn both lines in green and I have tried to follow the volume of the shapes.

So, for instance, the eye-line is curved as it is expected to follow the curvature of the head. Exact same thing for the beak.

What I have done in this step is simply to wrap the seleton lines within a summary that offer us a reference for where the actual body of the eagle is. I have actually likewise drawn a basic circle for the eye and marked in black the beak line.

Let's carry on.

The first touch to finish our drawing would be to thicken the outline to give more contrast and character to it.

Secondly, we will include a light grey tone to produce a shadow in some vital areas. I have actually utilized digital coloring in this case. Think of the light originates from the upper-right of the scene. Shadow will form under the eyebrow, beak and clearly on the front part of the body.
