My next lesson is gong to be on a very cute cartoon donkey. Everyone loves donkeys and I can remember going to the petting zoo to see and pet animals that I think are cool. One of my favorite farm animals to visit is the donkey. I think donkeys are misunderstood because everyone seems to think they are lazy and stupid. The people that think that are obviously wrong. There is three animals that differ from the horse and most people think that these animals are a lot like the horse. The fact is donkeys, zebras and mules may look like the horse but they are in fact very different. This tutorial is about the donkey so that is what I will talk about. The donkey has longer ears than the regular horse, and they also have shorter necks. The mane and tail hair on a donkey is extremely coarse and upright. The hair that flows down the back of the donkeys neck is stiff to touch and feels like a brush. The hooves of a donkey is shorter and rounder than a horses, and their voices are also very different. Donkeys do not nay, instead they EE-Aw. The vocals of a donkey are raspy and brassy and because of this they let out a “EE-Aw” sound when they decide to talk. Most of these animals are a slate grey color and even a dark brown color. The color of the donkey can also be white as well and when they are this color they can be very pretty. Anyways, this tutorial will show you “how to draw a cartoon donkey” step by step. He came out absolutely adorable and I know that you will all love this tutorial. I will be back soon with more drawing fun guys so stay tuned in. Peace out and happy drawing.

The first thing I like to do is draw out some basic guidelines and shapes that will aid you to draw a perfect cartoon donkey. Start with a big circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw a neck line and then attach it to the egg shaped body. Lastly draw four legs lines.
