N04 Emma Emu

In this project, you draw the fascinating face and spiffy hairstyle (or should I say feather-style) of Emma the Emu. Very few people would consider emus to be the most beautiful birds in the world; yet their funny faces present them as incredibly appealing and memorable. The neck and head of an adult Emu is mostly bald except for a few shaggy, unruly feathers. Emus are the tallest birds in their native Australia, ranging in height from 5 to 6 feet, with long powerful legs that allow them to run very quickly. As with other flightless birds such as penguins, emus’ wings are not designed to give flight to their disproportionately large bodies.
