This cute and funny species lives mostly in South America – in Chile and Argentina and the surrounding islands. However, sometimes, they travel all the way to Brazil and can be found in Rio. By the way, do you know why they’re called that? Well, the Portuguese explorer that found them was Mr. Magellan, and he gave them his name.

He saw these birds back in 1520. Sadly, even though they’re still alive after so many years (almost 5 centuries), they are classified as Near Threatened. The average Magellanic Penguin weighs 2.5-6.5 kilograms and is 60-75 centimeters tall. And, as often in nature, the males are bigger and stronger than the females.

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.
