I am glad to offer you another very useful and exciting drawing lesson in which you can learn how to draw a kangaroo step by step. This is another useful lesson dedicated to drawing animals.
Surely, you have seen kangaroos in many films, cartoons, or books. Kangaroo is a very interesting and funny animal. This animal feeds on grass, fruits, roots, extracting them from the ground with its strong front paws.
The way the kangaroo moves looks very interesting. Since the hind legs of a kangaroo are several times longer than the front ones, they do not walk or run, but only jump. At the same time, they help themselves to jump with a long, strong tail. Kangaroo is considered the most famous symbol of Australia. This animal is depicted even on the coat of arms of this country.
A distinctive feature of these animals is that on their front part of the body there is a so-called bag in which they carry their cubs.
In this lesson, you will be able to learn how to draw a cartoon style kangaroo. This style will make your drawing look cute and funny. Right now, you can start drawing this animal!
