drawing a yak step by step

Drawing a Yak Step by Step

Step 1.

Begin by drawing the massive guide shape for your Yak's body and then add the guide shape for the head. Sketch in the leg guidelines as well.

Step 2.

Up next, we will start to draw in the head which is just a thick bush of hair. Draw the snout and then draw the nose.

Step 3.

Complete the head and face by drawing the upper lip and bottom jaw. Sketch in the jaw shape or cheek and then draw in the Yak's bull like horns.

Step 4.

We will define the shape of the Yak's body. To do this just refine the lining and draw thick long hair at the bottom of the body. These hairs should be separated. Add some layers to the coat and then proceed to step five.

Step 5.

We will complete this lesson by drawing the stubby, sturdy legs and hooves for your Yak. Once completed erase the guides (if visible) as well as the mistakes.

Step 6.

And here you have the line art for your Yak. Color in this animal and show someone what you have just drawn.

It's been a long while since I made a lesson on a cartoon animal. That's why I wanted to make a new one and that new one is going to be on drawing a Yak in cartoon form, step by step. Now, I always wondered if Yaks are closer to cattle, rams or goats so I did some reserch and found out that they are of the genus Bos, which are closely related to cattle. Most Yaks are domesticated and can be found in areas like Central Asia, Tibet, Mongolia and Russia. These bulky animals have a strong build, sturdy legs and can carry much more than it's weight. They also have long coats of fur that covers their bodies and this helps protect them from the elements wherever they may live. Anyways, this Yak is not only going to be fun to replicate, it's also going to be very easy. I do hope you like the lesson, I will be back with some other fun tuts in a bit.
