Of course, any creature can be drawn very difficult and very simple. And the fewer details, the easier it will be to draw this or that creature.
To simplify the process of drawing a bunny, I made the drawing itself in the simplest possible manner, removing all unnecessary details and lines.
So, what do you need to know before starting the lesson on how to draw a rabbit?
First, remember that you need to start with simple and large shapes, gradually moving to small details.
Secondly, try not to press too hard on the pencil in the first stages, so that later it will be easier to remove unnecessary lines.
Thirdly, try not to concentrate too much on one detail, from time to time moving the drawing away from you and examining it to find inaccuracies and imbalances.

How to draw a bunny for kids
- Sketch the head and the torso.
Firstly, draw two circles to outline the head and body of our bunny. Notice how these two details convey the volume of the drawing already at this stage.
- Sketch the eyes of the bunny.
Draw two ovals to mark the outlines of the bunny’s eyes. They should be at a sufficiently large distance from each other. Ovals differ in shape and size due to the perspective.
- Sketch the bunny cheeks.
First, outline the nose using two short lines. Then draw the outline of the visible part of the mouth. After that, draw the cheeks using a lot of short lines.
- Draw bunny ears.
First draw the outer lines of the ears. Then sketch the internal ones as shown. Please note that already at this stage you can see where the ears of this cute creature are turned.
- Draw the front paws of the bunny.
The front legs of the bunny appear as small, rounded shapes. Draw it with light lines. To make your bunny drawing more convincing, add some fur to the top of the front legs.
- Draw the hind legs of the bunny.
The hind legs look a little more complex than the front ones, don’t they? In fact, they are just two rounded shapes of different sizes.
- Draw the tail and chest.
Start by drawing out the front of the chest using short, furry lines. Then draw the tail, trying to convey its fluffy texture.
- Erase the guidelines from the artwork.
To give your bunny drawing a finished look, delete all unnecessary guidelines. At this stage, you can study your drawing more carefully to find and correct any inaccuracies.
- Color the bunny drawing.
Don’t forget to paint white highlights inside the black rabbit eyes. First of all, color your eyes, not forgetting to leave highlights in them. Then color the rabbit’s fur light grey. Finish the bunny’s coloring process by turning the nose and inside of the ears pink.
