How to Draw Simple Animals

Step 1.

Start with a large circle for the head, and then another doughnut like shape for the body. Add the ear guidelines.

Step 2.

Now you can sketch out the actual shape of the face, and head, and then draw the ears like you see here.

Step 3.

Add the inner ear detailing, and then draw out and color in the jelly bean shaped eye. Add the nose and mouth like so, and then begin drawing the body shape like you see here.

Step 4.

For you last drawing step, all you need to do is draw the feet, and cap off the body. Lastly, add the toe lines, and then a puffy cotton like tail. Erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one to clean up your drawing.

Step 5.

When you are done, this is how your bunny should look. All you have to do now is color this simple animal in, and you are totally done. Great job everyone!
