Seriously peeps, how awesome was that last lesson on the simple pig? I've had so many ideas for simple tutorials lately and it seems the hard work has paid off. People seem to enjoy the simplicity of them, so today in this awesome lesson we will be learning "how to draw a simple cow", step by step. My sister is in love with farm animals. One of her favorites would have to be the cow. I have plenty of cow tutorials on the site but not a very simple one. I wanted the image of this cow to have the essence of simplicity and likability at the same time. Learning how to draw cows can be a fun filled lesson with a child, sibling, teacher, or friends! The lesson breaks down every detail to make this learning experience lots of fun. When you analyze this tutorial, look on how the head is a simple shape different to the body's shape. That technique is used so you can be able to define the difference between the head and body. The markings were a snap to draw, make sure you keep the markings apart from each other. Once you understand all of this, you're on your way to drawing the most simplest cow! Don't hesitate to share this easy lesson with your friends and family! For this tutorial you will need a pencil, paper, eraser, ruler, and compass for the guidelines. Make sure you pay attention on where to place the guidelines. It's very important that you draw the guides exactly the way they are. It would probably be better if you print out the guideline and trace over them. This will make things easier. Anyways, I hope you'll enjoy this lesson, I put effort into it so that it's simple as possible. Remember to comment, rate, favorite, and post your simple cow in the DragoArt gallery. Thanks for viewing peeps, and have fun!

This step is pretty straight forward. All you have to do is sketch the basic guidelines so you can start drawing the core details. Draw a shape similar to the one in the main picture. In that shape, draw some guidelines to build the proportions of the face correctly. Afterwards, draw a large circle for the body.
