Helpful Tips:

  1. Before using markers or pens to draw permanent lines on the bunny, you can lightly sketch guide lines with a pencil.
  2. There’s no need to purchase special art pens! A regular fine tip Sharpie or black marker works perfectly for creating the main bunny outline. You can achieve thicker lines by holding the marker at an angle, or create thinner lines by keeping the marker more vertical.

How to Draw a Bunny for Beginners

Take your time, exercise patience, and be kind to yourself! Drawing a bunny is all about having fun and combining simple shapes and lines together. Approach the drawing one line at a time, and it’s perfectly okay to start with a pencil outline and erase any lines that you’re not satisfied with!

Versatile Bunny Designs

Do you have to draw the bunny with a carrot? Absolutely not! You can easily modify the design of your bunny while adhering to the same basic concept. Begin by drawing the head, then let your imagination transform the body as you desire. See below for examples of our Year of the Rabbit Bunny and Easter Egg Bunny:

Ideal Paper for Bunny Drawings

Feel free to use any type of paper for your bunny drawing! We used regular printer paper for our illustrations. Drawing paper or sketch paper is a good option because it allows for easy erasing on its thicker surface. Marker paper is also great as it prevents ink from bleeding through the page!

Recommended Pens and Markers for Drawing

Thicker pens or markers work well for outlining the bunny, providing a distinct shape. While we used specific art marker pens, a Sharpie marker will also do the job! When it comes to coloring the bunnies, we utilized regular Crayola markers, but colored pencils or even crayons can be used as well.
