Overall, there are six flamingo species living on planet Earth. Two of them are found in the so-called Old World, while the remaining four are in the Americas (that includes the entire continent). By the way, do you know where the name comes from? It’s a Spanish word that literally means “flame-colored”. They do, indeed, look like they’re burning up.

As wader birds, flamingos usually hang around in shorelines and/or mudflats searching for food. They feed on insects mainly. To this day, the taxonomy of these creatures is a subject of great debates. Some folks say they are waterfowl, while others claim flamingos belong to the same group as the doves. I wonder if the birds themselves care what we call them :).

Some Things To Keep In Mind…

These tutorials are only here to guide you. Your drawing does not need to look "identical" to mine.

Start with rough but light pencil strokes that you can work into the shapes you want.

Once you have your rough drawing completed, go over it in a darker stroke for your final drawing.

Add shading and/or color to complete if desired.

Using this technique you will be able to draw anything after some practice... even without following step-by-step tutorials.
