How to draw a rubber duck
The rubber ducky has long been considered a favorite bath toy among American children. Not only was it a fun toy to play with as a youngster, but it was remarkably cute as well!
In this next hub, I will be demonstrating how to draw a cute little rubber ducky on paper and pencil. You can learn how to draw a ducky similar to the one on the right. I won't be showing you how to color it, as that is entirely up to you how and if you want to include color in the finished drawing. :)
A rubber duck has a very round shaped head, almost a complete circle. In this first step, draw 3/4 of a circle, leaving an opening at the bottom. The is where the body will meet later on.
Draw the basic shape of the duck's body. The way that a rubber duck is posed, it is usually in a folded up and rounded shape. Feet tucked under he body. But since a rubber ducky doesn't have any legs by default, we are mainly going to focus on the overall shape of the body.
Now draw in the back tail portion of the duck. Just a basic tail shaped that goes up a bit at the top. Now that we have completed drawing the overall outline, it's time to move our focus to the finer features of our rubber duck.
In this step, draw a bill at the front of your duck's face. Draw a bill that is similar to the one shown here. This duck's bill will have both the upper and lower one.

Now, draw a simple outline of the rubber duck's wing. Since our duck is faced toward the side, only one wing will be shown.
Add little feather lines on the duck's wing. Maybe just 2 or 3 lines going downward just to start. Since this isn't the most detailed of drawings, you don't want to overdue the lines and end up crowding the drawing too much.
In this last step, all you will be doing is drawing an eye. The eye can be circular in shape and somewhat big to increase its appeal.
After you are finished with this final step, feel free to throw in some color! I highly recommend coloring your drawings, as they help to make them pop out more and they just look more interesting when in color.
