As with all my tutorials, start with a circle and the face guidelines, basically a cross over the circle.

Add a long oval circle below the head but slightly overlapping it. This will serve as the body.

Add the swirvy tail behind the oval, and a smaller oval inside for the wing.

The feet can either be easily made or take more time. What I do is draw a circle for where the claws would be, and then draw a line from the circle to the body so they connect. I'm sure you're lost by reading this, and that's why there is always a picture next to what I type. xD
Also add the other wing showing slightly from behind the body oval.

Now we can start with the face. The guidelines will help you decide where to add the eyes and beak. I put the oval for the beak right below where the two face guidelines cross, and then drew the eyes beside it.

Finish the details for the beak and add a little scruffle on top. (Everything looks better with sruffles! xD)

Now with the full body, you should have the feet, most of the head and the body. For the shape of the head, notice that the curves come in where the face guidelines are.

You can now add in the details for the wings and scruffles everywhere else the feathers would show.

I drew two circles on the feet since they have two claws.

And a check for how it should look by now. x3

Pteri tails are VERY simple. Just draw a diamond. <3

Add the slashes in the tail, then the details for the eyes.

Coloring!
Outlining time! ^^ Create a new layer if you're drawing this on your computer, then outline. If you're working on paper and you sketched it with pencil, get a good inking pen and go over the final outline, then erase all the guidelines.

The next coloring steps are extremely simple.
