Step 1.

Okay, very simple first step. Just draw one medium sized circle for the head, a short curved line, and then a larger circle for the body.

Step 2.

Step 3.

Now in this next step you will start working on his face. Using the guidelines that you drew on the face, make the oval circles for his eyes and then the butt shape for his rabbit nose. Draw a small square for his tooth. You will now start sketching    

Step 4.

You have made it to the forth step and here you will start shaping out Thumper's head and then the large circles over his eye shapes. Make the detailing lines for his puffy cheeks as shown and then draw the rest of the lines for his legs and feet.

Description: Okay wait, before I put up that other tutorial I was telling you about I have to submit this one first. This next lesson is going to be on how to draw Thumper from Bambi. Now I know many of you know who Thumper is; he is a grayish blue colored rabbit that hangs around Bambi and Flower. As a matter of fact I think Thumper, Bambi, and Flower are all best friends. Thumpers character is portrayed as somewhat of a rebel that often gets tattled tailed on by his younger siblings. He is often being corrected on the proper thing to say and his mother is often heard asking him “what did your father tell you”? And of course little Thumper stands there with his hands behind his back swirling his front foot reciting what it was his father teaches and tells him. Young Bambi is first introduced to Thumper as the “young prince” as his mother is flooded with all the animal visitors from the forest. A popular phrase that was used by Thumper during that particular scene was when Bambi tries to stand for the first time and Thumper says “he’s kinda wobbly”. That is when his mother corrects him to recite what his father tells him which is, “If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin at all”. I love Thumper’s character because he is bold, funny and also caring when it comes to his friends. Not only is he one of the characters in Bambi, he also returns in the second flick Bambi II which is even more cute and funny at the same time. In this tutorial you will have a chance to learn how to draw Thumper from Bambi step by step. The instructions help make this tutorial easy to follow and understand. I will be back with more lessons for you all so stay tuned there is much more in store.
