To draw this cartoon Donkey 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 donkey's eyes. Sketch lightly at first. Darken the lines only when you get the shapes right. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles to represent glare. Shade the insides of the eyes but don't overlap the tiny glare circles.
Step 2: To the left of the eyes, draw a line that curves up for the front part of the head. Below that, draw a smaller, C-shaped line for the cheek. Extend the line toward the right to create the bottom of the donkey's head.
Step 3: Inside the head, below the eyes, draw a long, curved line for the muzzle. The shape of the donkey's muzzle should be similar to an oval. Inside the shape, draw two dots for the nostrils.
Step 4: Above the eyes, draw a shape similar to a small, curved rectangle for the top of the cartoon donkey's mane. Use tiny zigzags for the top edge for a furry texture. Leave the right edge of the shape open.
Step 5: To the right of the mane, draw a tall, pointy arc for the donkey's first ear. Inside the shape, draw another curved vertical line for the ear's opening.
