How to Draw Cattle

Artist: Dawn / January 30, 2013

Step 1.

Make the back end of the cow which is a large circle, then draw a smaller circle for the head. Connect the two shapes to make the body, then draw the cows limbs.

Step 2.

Draw the head of the cattle, then sketch out the muzzle of the animal too. Draw the big floppy ears, then draw the bottom jaw or mouth.

Step 3.

Sketch in some fuzz on the cow's head, then sketch in all the defining detailing on the face and ears like so. Draw the eyes and color them in. Sketch out the nose, then proceed to step four.

Step 4.

Draw the thick shape of the cow's neck. Sketch out the shoulders, then draw the front legs and hooves. Make a V for the bottom part of the chest.

Step 5.

Draw the back, stomach, and hind quarters. Draw the tail, then add muscle detailing as well as bone detail on the legs. Erase your mistakes, then you're done.

Step 6.

Here is your cow or cattle when you're done. Color it in and show folks what you have done.

Description: Cows, cows, and more cows. This tutorial is going to show you "how to draw cattle", step by step. This is probably one of best cows I have drawn in quite some time. It looks like one of the cows down the street from my house. The only difference between this cow and the cows down the road is they are black and this one is brown. The lesson should be pretty easy to follow so I'm pretty confident that those of you that tackle it, will succeed. Anyways, have fun drawing cattle folks, and I will ready another tut.
