How to Draw a Cartoon Duck

Step 1.

Start by drawing a circle for the head. Add the facial guidelines and then draw a long line for the cartoon ducks neck. Add some leg lines as well.

Step 2.

You will now draw out the bill of the mallard duck and then draw the beginning lines for the eyes. Add raised arched cheek lines and then move to the next step.

Step 3.

Finish off the face of the cartoon duck by drawing the rest of the eyes and coloring in the pupil. Draw the jaw of the beak and then finish off the shape of the head and make sure you add a few pieces of duck feathers. Next draw the shape and thickness of the neck as well as drawing out the shoulder line and but end.

Step 4.

Draw the front of the cartoons ducks body which would be the chest and then sketch out the legs and feet.

Step 5.

All you have to do here is sketch out the line for the wing and then add some detailing feathers. Draw a neck marking and then detail the front parts of the ducks legs. Erase the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one and move to see what your duck should look like.

Step 6.

Here is what your duck looks like when you are done. Color him/her in and you have just finished yourself a lesson on "how to draw a cartoon duck step by step".

How to draw any kind of animal can be a challenge. But when you want to draw a cartoon animal, than you have to say to yourself “this is going to be easy”. I love ducks and there are so many different types of ducks in existence. One of my favorite ducks are the ones you see in the ponds, lakes, and rivers, and they are called the “mallard duck”. Although you will be drawing a cartoon duck, the actual duck that I used as a reference was a mallard duck. I think the drawing came out cool and full of color. The cartoon duck looks like he could be Daffy Ducks cousin because they both have that dumb gaze about them. This is a good lesson for kids to draw for their dads if their dads go duck hunting, and hunting season is coming up. I hope you enjoy this lesson on “how to draw a cartoon duck step by step”. It is a very simple lesson to follow and understand, so anybody can do it. I shall return later with some more tutorials for you all. Peace out gang and keep on drawing.
