To draw this cartoon Bison step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two small ovals for the cartoon bison's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shapes right, darken the lines. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles to represent glare. Shade the bison's eyes but don't overlap the tiny glare circles.
Step 2: Below the eyes, draw a long, curved line for the bottom part of the cartoon bison's head. The left side of the head should be closer to the eye than the right side. Always sketch lightly to begin and only darken the lines when you get the shapes right.
Step 3: On both sides of the head, at the top, draw a small arc for the bison's ears. The ear on the right should be a bit bigger.
Step 4: Draw a long , curved line near the bottom of the head for the muzzle. Inside the cartoon bison's muzzle, draw two small circles for the nostrils.
Step 5: Draw a series of curved lines at the top for the fur on the bison's head. First draw the short, curved lines across the head. Then continue drawing them upward. The furry top of the head should be similar to a small cloud.
