To draw this cartoon Unicorn 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: Lightly sketch two small ovals for the cartoon unicorn's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shapes of the eyes right, darken the lines. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles to represent glare. Shade the inside of the unicorn's eyes using a dark value. Don't overlap the tiny glare circles as you shade the eyes. On the outer edge of each eye, draw three tiny lines for eyelashes.
Step 2: To the left of the eyes, draw a short line for the side of the face. Below that, draw a curved line for the cheek. Curve the line toward the right to create the bottom part of the head. There should be a big space between the unicorn's eyes and the bottom of the head. Below the eye on the left, draw two small circles and shade them in for the nostrils.
Step 3: High above the unicorn's eyes, draw a long, curved, horizontal line for the first part of the mane. Add a jagged spike near the middle of the line to represent a chunk of mane.
Step 4: Above that, draw a curved, sloping line for the parted mane. For the horn, draw a triangular line sitting on top of the line. Inside the cartoon unicorn's horn, draw a couple of curved lines to give it some ridges.
Step 5: To the right, draw a small, pointy arc with a line inside for the ear. To the left of the ear, draw a curved line for the rest of the unicorn's mane. Give the line a little spike for a clump of mane and don't overlap the horn as you draw the line.
