How to Draw a Simple Animal

Artist: Dawn / August 26, 2010

Step 1.

Draw two circles for the heads, and then two more for the bodies. Lastly, add the guidelines for their faces.

Step 2.

Draw the shape of their heads and or faces, and then draw the floppy ears for the pig, and the pointed ears for the horse. Don't forget to add some head fuzz too which is a simplified version of a mane.

Step 3.

You will then add the shapes of their legs both front and hind, and make sure to draw in the hooves.

Step 4.

Lastly, color in some eyes, draw a shape for the pigs nose, and then color in the nostrils for both animals. Erase the lines and shapes you drew in step one.

Step 5.

Look at that, I bet it too five minutes or less to draw two animal characters right? Well you have to color them in so that may tack on a few more minutes. Either way, you just learned how to draw a simple animal, very easily.

Description: Here is another simplified lesson on some really cute looking animals. I have been on this animal drawing kick for a week now, and with each passing day I somehow get more and more ideas for cute animals to draw. Today, I thought that a lesson on "how to draw a simple animal", step by step would be pretty cool since I don’t have one yet. In the tutorial you will not only draw a pig as the main image shows, you will also draw a cute version of a simplified horse. My little sister really enjoyed this lesson because she only had to draw two shapes, one for the head, and one for the body. In the shapes she colored in dots for the eyes, and nose, and then she drew the legs, and ears. It took her five minutes to create her own pig and horse, and they both came out great. I think she may one day be the next Dragon_Queen...(-: Anyways, there really isn’t too much for me to say with this description because the two animals you will be drawing are super easy. This would make a great lesson to make for a friend, or relative, and the best part is, you can add some accessories like straw hats, a pieces of hay coming from the mouths, and a few pumpkins along the sides of them. What will these extra features do? Make a great picture for Halloween. OMG, I can’t believe that Halloween is almost here. Wicked! Well, that’s it. Have fun learning "how to draw a simple animal", and remember, you have the option to make a horse, pig, or both. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of yoru drawing day, be sure to rate and comment on every lesson you visit. Peace people!
