Rabbit Drawing Cartoon Lesson

Here in this simple rabbit drawing lesson...

I wanted to keep things as easy as possible - while at the very same time, make for a situation, where you can still *branch off* - and tap into your own creativity and imagination, a chance to make the final outcome, uniquely yours.

And yes, while it will have some resemblance to mine, when your done - here, it's all about "letting go", being free with your pencil strokes, and of course...

Having fun!

Let's begin...

A Simple Rabbit Drawing, Step by Step

OK, so with this cartoon rabbit - let's begin like usual, with a framework of basic shapes - something to help us visualize what we're going to draw, before we actually lay down any lines.

Circles and ovals doing the trick - here's a rough idea, of what yours could look like...

Next up - fading our blues lines to something very light in color...

Go ahead now, and give you rabbit drawing a face - marking off the mouth, nose area, and also the eyes.

Just simple lines here, is all it takes.

And don't worry about perfection!

Draw a simple face for your cartoon rabbit drawing

Here with the eyes and teeth, I kept the lines rough and sketchy-looking, something I did on purpose, as I'd like to see you attempt this - will little concern in this area.

Keep your hand loose. Just have fun, roughly laying down the lines. Erase if you like - but really, there's no need.

Just keep on flowing along...

Next, on to the head - mapped out ahead of time by an oval (mouth area) and a circle (top of the head)...

Go ahead - and using quick, wispy strokes of your pencil or stylus - gradually bring in the perimeter into view like so.

You don't have to worry about lines connecting either. Here it's all about shape and form - marking off that "rough idea"...

Fading what we've previously drawn - out to light grey...

This helps to focus on the next step, free your mind up (hopefully!) even more. :-)

Again, you can see how easy I've made this lesson. And when I say "easy" - I'm not saying that sure, it's easy for anyone to draw. But I do mean in the approach, and in the amount of care taken with each line.

You can just freely, lay them down - an an order, style and sequence "close enough" to what I've done.

Here's how the body begins...

More of those simple, disconnected, sketchy, messy looking lines - and when all is said and drawn...

We've got a cute, simple rabbit drawing - one that if you like, can be stylized even further to take on a look of your own.

Here it is...

And then, with some color...

And that's it!

Going back to the start of the lesson again for a second, I'd just like to point out - that by sketching out those simple shapes ahead of time - can really help.

It doesn't always have to be shapes.

It could just be some basic lines - to help give you the "gist" of what you're going to be drawing.

Point being - anything to help the creative mind stay free along the path, is well worth it.

Well, hope you enjoyed the lesson.

See you soon for another! :-)
