How to Draw Cute Animals – Let’s get Started!
As we mentioned previously, in this guide on how to draw cute animals we shall be creating three cute critters.
We shall be starting with the turtle, as this little guy will be standing in front of the others.
We shall start simply for this one, and all you need to do is draw a line going up that curves and rounds to the left to create his little head.
Once you have that drawn, we shall start to draw his body in the next step.
Step 2 – Start to draw the shell
Now that you have the outline of the head started, we can begin to draw the shell for this part of your cute animals drawing.
Starting from near the top of the head, draw a curved line going left to form the top of the shell.
Then, there shall be a tiny tail near the end of this line. Finally, draw a small line underneath the chin of your animals drawing to create a bit more detail.
Step 3 – Finish off the body of the turtle
We will complete most of the turtle in this next step of our guide on how to draw cute animals.
Firstly, draw a line across the bottom of the neck, and then draw a thin oval around that to create the neck hole of the shell.
Then, use some wavy lines going horizontally to create the rim of the shell.
This turtle has some cute, stubby little legs, so you can use some flat circle-like shapes for the legs, and then add three small circles to the bottom of each for the nails.
Step 4 – Next, draw the pony
Let’s leave the final details of the turtle for now, and start on the pony. This is a step where you will definitely want to refer closely to the reference image for help!
Don’t be afraid to take it slow on this step of your cute animals drawing. The pony will be behind the turtle and pointing out to the left.
Carefully draw the mane of the pony while being sure to have the ear pointing out. Drawing with a pencil first could be very helpful in getting the layering looking correct!
Once you’re happy with it, you can always go over it with your pen.
Once you have the mane, you can draw in the face shape, and then have some straight lines coming don from the face for the legs.
Once you’re happy with the pony, we shall move on to the bunny!
Step 5 – Now, draw the bunny
In this step of our guide on how to draw cute animals, we shall add the adorable bunny! You can draw the head of the bunny directly over the shell of the turtle.
It will have a round, circular base, but you can use two curved lines at the top for the ears. You can then use some simple lines for the neck and paws of the bunny.
Step 6 – Draw a base for your cute animals drawing
In our cute animals drawing, we created a simple, grassy base for the adorable trio. You can create this look using a mixture of straight lines for the ground along with jagged lines for some grass.
This is a step where you can also add some details and a background of your own! Perhaps these animal friends are in a mystical forest or in a beautiful garden.
What kind of settings do you think would suit these cuties?
Step 7 – Finish off the final details
These adorable animals are almost done now, and they just need a few more details to have them ready for coloring! The main thing to add is some facial details.
You can give them some eyes using some rounded circles or ovals with a smaller circle within them.
Then, you can give each animal buddy a smiling mouth using a curved line on each face.
Don’t forget to add some details such as circles on the turtle’s shell and some lines to the hair of the pony to really finish it off!
Step 8 – Now finish off your cute animals drawing with some color
Now that all three of your animal pals are drawn, it’s time to have some fun with color!
We showed you how we would color ours in, but for this step of this guide on how to draw cute animals you should let your creativity flow and use any colors that you love!
Will you use musted and realistic colors, or will you go bright and beautiful by using mediums such as acrylic paints, colored pens and markers?
It’s all up to you now, and no matter what you choose I know it will look adorable and beautiful!
