Step 1.

Begin by making the guides for the deer head like so. When that is done sketch in the facial guidelines.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the shape of the head and forehead like so, then sketch in the straight line for the snout. Add the round nose and then the upper lip or mouth line.

Step 3.

Sketch out the full shape of the bottom mandible along with the jaw line. You will then sketch out the shape of the buck's neck like so, then draw in the large ears. Add some detailing around the back part of the jaw and on the chin.

Step 4.

Next, sketch out the shapes of the eyes, then draw in the shaggy markings around the eyes. Add detailing to the deer's nose like drawing the nostril holes. You will then add some fuzz on the neck, then proceed to step five.

Description: Before I get to my last for kids lesson for the day I wanted to break things up and make a tutorial on "how to draw a deer head", step by step. The buck you see before you now looks almost like one of the three deer I seen yesterday when I was doing my daily walk. Deer season is coming near which means there will be a lot of bright orange hats and vests around town once again. People around where I live wait for deer hunting season like kids wait for summer. I tried to incorporate the look of Bambi's father into the creation of this deer or buck. I do hope that when you draw animal heads you take your time with the sketch because they are truly fun making when you have a steady calm pace. Anyways, enjoy drawing this deer head folks and keep those requests rolling in I promise I will get to them eventually. happy hunting folks, (if you are into that type of sport).
