How to Draw a Cow for Kids

Artist: Dawn / June 17, 2011

Step 1.

Draw a very boxy shape for the cows head framing shape like you see here. Once that is done draw out the body that actually looks like a sack. Add one face guide as well.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the actual structure of the cows distinct shape and then draw in the ears.

Step 3.

Draw the cow horns and then draw out the eyes, nostrils and then color in some pupils like so.

Step 4.

AS you can see you are moving along nicely with this lesson. All you have to do here is draw out the front legs and one of the nipples from the milk sack.

Step 5.

The next thing you are going to do is draw out the back of the neck, the back, and then the butt, hind leg, and thigh.

Step 6.

Draw in another nipple on the milk sack and then draw out the cow marking which is usually colored in black or a dark brown.

Step 7.

For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw out the tail. Because of this you can choose to erase the shapes and guides from step one now, or you can choose to do it after drawing out the cow tail.

Step 8.

Here is what the drawing should look like when you are all done. Now you can color in your animal, and add him/her to your barn or farm.

Description: Okay guys, I have a few kiddie tutorials for all the novice or beginning artists out there that can’t really draw too much of what is on Dragoart based on the front page. To start, I will show you "how to draw a cow for kids", step by step. Like I’ve said hundreds of times before, drawing simple animals that everyone can tackle is pretty sweet because I know for sure that there should be little to no complications with the tutorial. The cow is a very popular farm animal to draw, especially if you are drawing a farm and you want to fill that farm with some typical animals. Critters like pigs, horses, chickens, goats, and even a donkey, are just a few farm animals that one can expect to see when visiting a real farm. When you’re in the country driving down those winding side roads, there are tons of pastures with cows grazing the grass as their calves drink from their bellies. Anyways, this should be a fairly easy lesson to tackle. When you are done you can show everybody that you can actually "draw a cow" and make it look like one. Have fun guys and keep the creativity flowing by drawing until you fall asleep. Peace people!
