How to Draw a Bunny

  1. Sketch the head and the torso.

    Start by drawing two overlapping ovals, one for the head and the other for the body. Position the smaller oval slightly to the left of the larger one, ensuring they intersect at the head’s lower right side. These ovals act as guides, helping to shape the overall form and ensuring proportionality in later stages.

  2. Sketch the eyes of the bunny.

    Add the bunny’s eyes by sketching two small, rounded circles on the smaller oval, spaced evenly to the left and right of the vertical centerline. The eyes should be positioned at roughly the middle of the head. The position of the eyes should convey the general position of the bunny’s head.

  3. Sketch the bunny cheeks.

    Draw a tiny triangular nose at the bottom of the smaller oval. Illustrate the bunny’s mouth by extending two short, curved lines from the bottom of its nose, splitting downwards and to the left and right. Enhance the bunny’s cheeks by sketching soft, rounded lines from the nose down to the body’s oval.

  4. Draw bunny ears.

    Sketch two elongated, slightly pointed ovals for the bunny’s ears, emerging from the top of its head. The ovals should angle slightly outward and be positioned symmetrically, with one to the left and one to the right. The ear outlines should be somewhat rounded and soft, giving a gentle appearance.

  5. Draw the front legs of the bunny.

    Sketch two small, elongated ovals extending down from its lower body, slightly to the left and right of its midline. Position these legs symmetrically, curving towards the body’s outline, and include slight bends at the knees.

  6. Add the hind legs of the bunny.

    Add two rounded shapes on the lower body, slightly behind and below the front legs. These rounded shapes should curve downwards and then inward towards the bunny’s belly, suggesting a sitting posture. Position them symmetrically, with the lower part of the legs blending into the body’s curve.

  7. Illustrate the tail and chest.

    Add the bunny’s tail by drawing a small, rounded shape at the back of its body, aligning it symmetrically with its lower body. Position the tail slightly upward, making it distinct from the hind legs. To add more detail and texture to the bunny, drawing fur on its chest.

  8. Erase the guidelines from the artwork.

    Refine the bunny drawing by tracing over the initial ovals and curved lines with smoother, more precise strokes, connecting all features seamlessly. Remove any unnecessary guidelines, creating a finished outline. This final contour should highlight the bunny’s roundness, emphasizing its natural curves.

  9. Color the bunny drawing.

    Fill in the bunny’s eyes with solid black, leaving small white dots to suggest a reflective gleam. For the body, apply a very light grey color. Alternatively, you can color the bunny’s body in varying shades of brown, with lighter patches or streaks of white to add further texture and natural variation.
