To draw this cartoon Cow 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 cow'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 insides of the eyes using a dark value but don't overlap the tiny glare circles.
Step 2: Draw a line that starts to the right of the eyes and curves to the top, left side for the cow's head. Notice how high above the eyes the top of the head is. Don't forget to sketch lightly at first and only darken the line when you get the shape right.
Step 3: To the right of the eyes, draw a short, curved line for the cheek. Continue to draw the line below the eyes to create the bottom of the cow's head. Curve the line upward so that it almost meets the top to finish the shape of the cartoon cow's head.
Step 4: Inside the head, below the eyes, draw a long, curved line for the cow's muzzle. The line should be pretty wide. Inside the shape, draw two tiny circles for the nostrils.
Step 5: Draw a small triangular shape on the top, left side of the head for the first horn. Draw a similar shape on the top, right side of the head for the cow's other horn.
