Lets look at how to draw a bird with a complex pattern and a more dynamic angle. Song Sparrows have finely streaked heads and breasts. The three-quarter view allows you to see the breast pattern and central dark spot. The first steps will look familiar as you block in the posture, proportions, and angles. Things get interesting when you start to add the guide lines that show the center of the chest and body angle.
