How To Draw A Bunny
Here’s how to draw a simple bunny step-by-step:
Step 1: Draw a circle
Draw a skewered circle
Step 2: Draw the body
Draw another skewered oval, but instead of making the edge round towards the end, make it sharp.
Step 3: Draw the hind leg
Next, we draw a circle towards the bottom, within that skewered oval we drew.
Step 4: Draw the feet
Now draw 3 pill-shaped ovals for the feet. For the two on the left, make them close together.
Step 5: Draw the ears
Starting from the top of the head, draw two elongated circles at the top, close together.
Step 6: Link together everything
Starting from the back of the head, draw a curved line linking the bunny’s body to the head. After that, draw a curved line starting from the chin area down to the two feet you drew earlier.
Do the same for the back foot. Draw a curved line linking the back foot to the oval you drew earlier.
Step 7: Draw the mid stomach
Sketch a line in the middle between the back feet and the two feet in the front. This will be the stomach. Above that to the upper left, draw a line for the arm joint.
Step 8: Draw the eye
Now, draw a skewered circle for the eye. Start by drawing a curved line at the top, and a half circle at the bottom.
Step 9: Detail the eye
Now add a curved line on top of the eye for the eye socket and two lines for the lacrimal caruncle, and another line below the eye.
Step 10: Draw the shape of the face
To the left of the eye, draw a half-diamond shape at the inner edge of the circle, about eye level with the bunny. This is the nose bridge.
Step 11: Draw the mouth
Draw an “M” at the outer area of the circle for the mouth.
Step 12: Draw the nose
Now, draw the nose. Curved at the top and straight corner going down.
Step 13: Draw the inner ear
Draw two “C” shapes within the elongated circle you drew earlier.
Step 14: Cleanup the head
Erase part of the oval for the top of the head where the ears are. After that, erase the outer oval line outside the lines you drew for the nose bridge. Erase the inner oval line where the “M” is, but leave the right area intact for the lip below the nose.
Step 15: Cleanup the body
Erase the ovals used for the body and legs. make sure to leave half a circle for the hind leg.
Step 16: Draw the paws
Draw lines on each foreleg and the hind leg for the paws.
Step 17: Darken the eye
Now darken the eye.
Step 18: Add highlights to the eye
Now add highlights to the eye! Two highlights will do.
Step 20: Draw whiskers
Draw curved lines coming out of the face.
Step 21: Draw shadows
Draw shadows in the ear, right side of the face, between the legs, and on the back of the bunny. Do cross-hatching on areas that should be darker, like on the very back of the bunny. Press lightly as it’ll be hard to fix mistakes if you draw too hard. Consider using a tablet as it’s easier to erase mistakes. Here’s a list of the best cheap tablets for you.
Step 22: Add furry outline
Erase part of the chest and hind leg and start drawing curved “peaks” for the fur outline. make them fluffy!
