I invite you to a new simple drawing lesson in which you will learn how to draw a cartoon zebra step by step.
So, this instruction consists of nine steps, with the help of which you will learn how to draw a cartoon zebra step by step. Here is a very simple drawing method that is easy to master even for a beginner.
Before you start the lesson, I want to tell you some fascinating facts about this animal. The zebra is the closest relative of the horse, which has an unusual appearance due to the many stripes on the body. The stripes on animal skins are as unique as human fingerprints. Zebras have sharp eyesight and excellent memory, thanks to which they easily recognize each other by the pattern of stripes on the skin.
Zebras are intelligent animals, but they are difficult to tame, and attempts to breed fully domesticated zebras have been unsuccessful for several centuries. Zebras live in small groups and can sometimes form larger herds and migrate together in search of food. At the same time, zebras try not to move away from the reservoir in order to come to the watering place at least once a day.
I hope that you were interested in learning some information about zebras, and now you are ready to start the lesson. Grab your art supplies and follow the steps in this tutorial in sequence.
