How to Draw a Cartoon Giraffe

Artist: Dawn / July 27, 2009

Step 1.

In order to draw a nicely drawn out cartoon giraffe, you need to draw some beginning shapes and lines. First draw a small circle for the head and then draw a long line for the neck. You will then draw lines for the legs and tail.

Step 2.

You will start step two with the lining of the cartoon giraffe's nose as you see here. Once that is drawn out you will draw the eyes and then nostril holes.

Step 3.

Finish off the face and shape of the head for the cartoon giraffe. You will then draw out the shape of the neck and some of the back line. Don't forget to add the pupil and then the horns too.

Step 4.

Start this step by drawing out the rest of the giraffe's upper body and then start sketching out the different shapes of spots on the giraffe.

Step 5.

Finish the shapes and style of the legs and hooves and then draw out the shape of the tail and the bushiness on the top of the tail. You can start erasing all the guidelines that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

When you are done your cartoon animal should look like this. Color him/her in and you have just learned "how to draw a cartoon giraffe" step by step.

Description: What animal has a really long neck, long eyelashes, and long twiggy legs? If you were thinking about a giraffe than you were absolutely right. I know that I already have a tutorial on this safari animal, but like the other cartoon animals I drew, I wanted to draw a much easier version of this animal so that everyone can enjoy it. Drawing a cartoon giraffe is really fun and I love the way he/she came out. The way that the body is positioned like, and how the face looks so young and cute is really epic. It took me a few hours to draw out this cartoon giraffe, but I doubt that it will take you other artists the same amount of time. The reason why it takes me so long to draw simple characters is because I have to first draw it out on a tablet, and then start drawing from the rough sketch. When that is done I begin shaping and shifting the drawing into what you see here. When I finish with a sketch, I will then color it in and lay it out as a tutorial for you all to learn from. If I were to just draw on plain old sketching paper using only a nice mechanical pencil, then I could get done a lot sooner. I hope you guys will have fun with this lesson on “how to draw a cartoon giraffe”, step by step. I know you will find this tutorial a blast, I will return with more drawing fun. Adios amigos‘!
