How to Draw a Rabbit Step by Step Tutorial
This step-by-step tutorial demonstrates how to draw a rabbit from the side view, with examples for each step. When using pencil and paper, be sure to make light lines that you can easily erase until you reach the final step.
Step 1 – Draw the Major Shapes of the Rabbit Body
The front and back shapes of a rabbit in this position can be broken down into two parts, with the back shape being drawn with a single curve.
Step 2 – Draw the Legs
Draw the overall shape of the rabbit’s legs, with the bottom part of the front leg narrowing slightly from the elbow area to the toes. For added effect, draw a tiny hint of the other front leg in the back (really just one line).
Step 3 – Draw the Ears & Tail
Draw the shape of the rabbit’s ears from the side view, with each ear pointing slightly towards the viewer and slightly to the left. Because rabbits have small tails, this stage of the drawing can be done with just two curves. Drawing the ears as described above in the side view helps create this effect.
Step 4 – Draw the Details of the Head
Add details to the rabbit’s head, such as the smaller bends and curves, as well as the mouth, cheeks, nose, eye, and bottom portion of the front ear.
Step 5 – Draw the Very Small Details
