How to Draw a Reindeer for Christmas

Artist: Dawn / December 20, 2022

Step 1.


The first thing you need to do is draw a circle for the head and then another shape for the body. Once that is done you can draw the facial guidelines and guidelines for the antlers and limbs.

Step 2.


Next, draw the actual shape and structure of the reindeer's face. Once that is done you can color in some eyes, then draw the nose, mouth and ears.

Step 3.


Fill in that gap at the top of the head with large antlers. They should also be thick the tips should be rounded.

Step 4.


Finish the head shape, then add detailing to the ears.

Step 5.


Now that the head, face and antlers are all done you can draw the body starting with the neck and front legs.

Step 6.


Before drawing more of the body, go ahead and give this reindeer a jingle bell collar.

Step 7.


Finish up the body and then draw the hooves and hoof lines on the front legs.

Step 8.


Lastly, give this reindeer a saddle and a fluffy tail. When that is done draw the marking line on the chest and belly, then add some detailing to the saddle. Erase the mistakes if you made any as well as the guides.

Step 9.


Here is the line art folks. Color in your Christmas reindeer and give it a wonderful background.
