How to Draw a Cartoon Kangaroo

Step 1.

To draw a cartoon kangaroo you will need to draw three circles. The first circle is for the kangaroo's head, you will then need to draw the facial guidelines in as well. Next draw the torso and butt end circles and then draw the leg, feet, and tail guidelines.

Step 2.

You will start sketching out the shape of the face which includes the nose and or muzzle, the bushy hair on top of the head, a cute friendly smile, and then a nice round eye that is colored in a bit. Draw the shape of the ears and then that is it.

Step 3.

Sketch out the rest of the ear and then add some detailing inside. You will proceed onto drawing out the chest, arms, and hands, as well as the back and inner thigh. Once that is done move to step four.

Step 4.

All you have to do here is draw out the thigh shape which is bent because this cartoon kangaroo is in a sitting position. Draw the lining for the pouch and then add some definition by sketching in a few wrinkle lines. You will also finish off the hand too.

Step 5.

Well you have come to your final drawing step and all you need to do is draw out the thick long tail for the cartoon kangaroo, and then finish off drawing out the legs and feet. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one and move to the last line art step.

Step 6.

Everyone loves the kangaroo and because of that I decided to do another lesson on this Australian animal. I already have a tutorial on a kangaroo, but that one is so realistic and I thought it would be kind of fun to do a lesson on “how to draw a cartoon kangaroo”, step by step. Like I said before, drawing cartoon animals is so fun and so incredibly easy. Instead of giving this cartoon animal some regular looking eyes, I switched it up a bit and drew in anime style eyes so that it would give this cartoon kangaroo some style and character. The body came out cool too, as you can see there is also a pouch so that she can carry her Joey around when they travel. One of the most amazing things about the kangaroo is that fact that they are born so incredibly small, and these little babies climb a distant journey to their mothers pouch. Absolutely amazing, how can an animal do such things? I guess we will never know because we didn’t create them. Anyways, I have to go because I have a long day ahead of me. I will be back though so keep an eye out for my presence around 6pm. In the mean time try on this tutorial for size that will teach you “how to draw a cartoon kangaroo step by step“. Peace out peeps and keep on drawing till your hand gives out!
