How to Draw a Rhinoceros

Step 1.

Alrighty, this is the step when we will draw the guidelines of the body and head. First start out with a huge oval for the body and a circle for the head. Don't forget to add the lines for the legging as well. This is an important process of the tutorial because it will help you layout the rest of the body with ease.

Step 2.

Now we are going to start drawing the huge horn and the snout below it. Add some of the fore and backlegs. The bottom of the rhino will extend upwards from the backleg and into the mid top of the oval. After that draw the cheek of the rhino. Once you have followed that, get ready to move on to the next step!

Step 3.

Now we will draw the some more details to the face as well. Draw the eye, nose, and the other horn and ear. Don't forget to sketch in the large hump that extends from the head. We will now start drawing the folds in the neck of the skin. Add in the rest of the backleg as well.

Step 4.

In this last step we will draw the folds in the skin once again. Draw the rest of the foreleg on the side of the other foreleg. Finish off the first foreleg we drew by adding in the rest of elbow and chest. After that shade in the darkest spot of the inner ear. Once you have completed all this draw the cute little tail at the back of the rhino.

Step 5.

Now now, this is what your lineart should look like after you've followed the steps above. Our rhino looks...sick and tired of being created! Lol I hope you had some fun with this lesson! I had to make sure I got the rhino looking right! I searched up alot of pictures to see if everything was included with this creature XD. Please tell me if this lesson on how to draw draw rhino step by step was useful to you! Enjoy your drawing!

Ok people, for the last tutorial we are going to be learning how to draw an animal I haven’t made a tutorial out of yet. We’re going to have an awesome lesson on "how to draw a rhinoceros" step by step! I don’t understand why no one has a tutorial on this creature. I looked all over the internet to find one. The rhino I drew was inspired by a picture I saw that had a blue rhino charging out of pink clouds. It was really pretty picture! I know my rhino is nothing compared to the painting that I saw. If you don’t know that much about rhino’s let me explain them to you! There are five rhino species that are exist. Three of the five are endangered. These three are the Javan, Black, and Sumatran rhinos. There’s also a white rhino, but I don’t know if it’s extinct or not. I seen pictures of them and they’re all albino. Did you know rhino’s have a thick protective coat of skin? The skin is 1.5 cm thick! That’s like 2 cm of callus on our bodies! Kinda gross but if you ask me. Rhino’s have poor eyesight but an acute sense of hearing. They can live up to sixty years without being hunted down by predators. There was this game I played that had a huge rhino with a whole bunch of armor on it. It had a girl sitting on it dressed in armor too. I forgot what game it was. I’m guessing it was Prince of Persia or something like that. There’s also a huge rhino looking thing in the movie Lord of the Rings 3. It was carrying the giant tower things to the castle and they were shooting catapults at it! It was an awesome scene! Anyways, I hope this tutorial will teach you "how to draw a rhinoceros", step by step! I had fun drawing this and the tutorial. I hope this helps!s
