To draw this cartoon giraffe 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.
Below you can watch a Narrated 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 a small, curved line that's similar to the letter C for this cartoon giraffe's eye. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shape right, darken the line and make it thicker for the eyelashes. The shape should be like a half-circle minus the bottom. Make the tips pointy.
Step 2: Under the eye, near the right, draw a small circle for the iris. In the middle of the iris, draw a smaller circle and shade it in for this cute giraffe's pupil.
Step 3: On either side of the pupil, draw a tiny circle for highlights. You can draw only one circle if you'd like. Above the eye, draw a long, curved line for the giraffe's brow.
Step 4: To the left of the giraffe's eye, draw a line that curves up and to the right for the giraffe's head. Pay attention to how high above the eye the top of the head is. Below the line for the head, draw a C-shaped line for the muzzle and smile. Add a shorter line on the left side for a smile line.
Step 5: Under the giraffe's mouth, draw a short, curved line for the bottom of the head. Inside the muzzle, near the top, draw a small circle with a curved line on top of it for the nostril.
