Required Drawing Supplies
To begin your bunny-drawing journey, all you need is a medium of your choice, such as pen, pencil, or crayon, and a piece of paper. No fancy tools are required! However, if you’re looking for high-quality drawing supplies, check out the best tools for drawing here.
Step 1: Drawing the Bunny Head
Start by drawing an oval at a slight angle, with the downward-facing side serving as a guide for the head’s details.
Step 2: Adding the Bunny Nose, Mouth, and Jaw Shape
Extend a rounded shape from the bottom of the oval. It should resemble a U-shape with a slight point in the middle, connecting the top and bottom of the circle.
Step 3: Incorporating the Bunny Ear
Return to the top of the circle and draw a carrot-shaped structure to form the bunny’s ear.
Step 4: Sketching the Bunny’s Body Shape
Move to the back of the bunny and draw a larger oval at an angle. Make it approximately one and a half times the size of the head oval, positioning it behind the ear.
Step 5: Connecting Bunny’s Body to Head
Create an arc starting slightly before the bottom of the back oval and extending towards the chin of the bunny (the U shape). Leave some space between the arc and the point.
Step 6: Drawing the Second Bunny Ear
Behind the ear and head, draw a small line to connect the top of the larger oval with the smaller oval. Here, you will also add the second ear. Sketch an elongated “D” shape next to the first ear, making it slightly thinner.
Step 7: Adding Bunny’s Back Feet
At the base of the larger oval, create a foot shape. Begin with a carrot shape and flatten it out at the bottom where it meets the ground. Then, leave space for the heel and draw a gentle line upwards toward the larger oval. Repeat the process for the second back foot, omitting the heel halfway up the bottom arc.
Step 8: Including Bunny’s Front Feet
It’s time for the front feet! Draw an inward curve from a quarter of the way into the arc’s space. Extend the curve outward to create a slight bump for the toes. Finish it off with a flat line at the same level as the back feet. Repeat this step for the second front foot.
Step 9: Drawing Bunny’s Tail
Add a cute cottontail on the outer side of the larger oval. Draw a simple half-circle to represent the bunny’s tail.
Step 10: Adding Details by Overlapping Shapes
Similar to the dragon-drawing technique, erase the overlapping lines, but leave a few visible to define the jaw, chin, bottom, and where the hip meets the foot. Remember not to erase the arc for the front foot facing away from us.
Step 11: Drawing the Bunny’s Eye
At the pointed area of the earlier U-shape, draw a short diagonal line as the nose. A little further back, create an almond-shaped black dot for the bunny’s eye.
Step 12: Finalize the Bunny Details
Now it’s time to add the inside of the ears. Complete the inside of the ear facing towards us, but leave the other one incomplete. Add wispy whiskers, highlight the eyes, and voila! You’ve drawn an adorable little bunny rabbit.
