Step 1: Creating the Head and Facial Features

Begin by drawing a circle as a guide for the rabbit’s head. To draw the circle accurately, you can make four marks to determine its height and width, then connect the marks with curved lines. If you find it challenging to draw a perfect circle, you can trace the outer rim of a circular object like a coin or bottle cap. Inside the circle, draw two curved lines as guides to help you position the facial features later.

Step 2: Outlining the Muzzle and Ears

On the bottom-left side of the head, draw a small circle as a guide for the bunny’s muzzle. Pay attention to the size and placement of the muzzle in relation to the head circle. Above, draw two tall arcs as guides for the ears. The ear on the left should be slightly smaller and thinner than the one on the right.

Step 3: Sketching the Body

Below the head, draw two additional circles as guides for the rabbit’s body. The upper body circle should be approximately one and a half times the size of the head circle, while the lower body circle should be nearly twice as big. Draw the circles slightly to the right of the head.

Step 4: Guiding the Limbs

Under the upper body circle, draw two small curved lines as guides for the bunny’s front leg. These lines should resemble the shape of the letter “U” and should be drawn along the edge of the lower body circle. Under the lower body circle, create a curved shape as a guide for the hind foot. This guide should resemble an arc on its side.

Step 5: Outlining Additional Legs and Connecting the Body

To the left of the front leg, draw two more short curved lines as guides for the rabbit’s other front leg. Only draw the visible section of this leg as part of it will be hidden behind the first leg. At the bottom, draw another arc on its side as a guide for the hind foot. To complete the guide for the torso, connect the head to the body using short lines to form the neck. Finally, connect the body circles on the right side with a long line.

That’s it for the guidelines! From this point on, you can press down harder with your pencil to create a more defined drawing of a rabbit standing up.

Step 6: Adding Facial and Body Details

Inside the head circle, draw a small circle for the bunny’s eye. Use the initial lines as guides to position the eye correctly within the head. Add a few strokes at the top to depict eyelashes and curved lines around the shape to represent bare skin. Within the eye, draw a tiny circle for a highlight and a larger circle for the pupil. Shade in the pupil, using a darker value to create contrast. On the left side of the muzzle, draw a triangular shape for the nose. Complete the nose by adding a curved line on the right side to represent the nostril.

Step 7: Refining the Facial Features

Draw a line beneath the nose that divides into two at the bottom to form the rabbit’s mouth. Utilize short strokes to give the mouth a furry texture. Add a few short strokes along the path of the initial circle to enhance the muzzle’s appearance. Keep in mind that not every part of the circle should be darkened; leave some gaps to maintain a realistic effect.

Enjoy the Process!
