How to Draw a Giraffe
- Sketch out the head.
As you can see, it should be depicted as a simple oval.
- Sketch the neck and torso.
First, depict the oval torso, then connect it to the head with the neck.
- Add the legs.
Use long and smooth lines like in my example.
- Draw the horns and ears.
First sketch out the horns with simple lines, then rounded ears on the sides of them.
- Add the facial details.
First sketch out the rounded eyes and nostrils, then the line separating the nose from the rest of the face.
- Add the tail.
First sketch out the base of the tail, then the tuft at the end.
- Sketch out the hooves.
This should be done using four slightly curved lines.
- Add a giraffe pattern.
Do not try to repeat everything as in my example. Simply place the spots in random order.
- Color the giraffe drawing.
To do this, use yellow, orange, and brown colors.
