Drawing a Unicorn: A Simple Step-by-Step Tutorial

If your child is eager to learn how to draw a unicorn, we’re here to help with our comprehensive unicorn drawing tutorials. Drawing a cute baby unicorn might initially seem challenging, with its horse-shaped head and flowing locks. However, by following our step-by-step instructions, you’ll discover that it’s easier than you think.

Before you dive in, open the “How to Draw: Unicorn” page on the Caribu app. This page provides a visual guide and a list of art supplies that correspond to our instructions. You can use the blank space on the app to draw your unicorn. If you have a stylus, it may be helpful to use it for more precise drawing. Now, let’s choose the outline style you prefer, such as fine point or thick, bold lines. Once you’re ready, let’s begin!

Step 1 – Head, Nose, and Neck

Start by sketching the head, nose, and neck of the unicorn. Using a sketch pencil or a permanent marker pen, draw a U-shaped head, similar to that of a white horse, with a slight wave on the underside. Then, extend a line downwards to form the neck, leaving the other side of the neck open for the unicorn’s mane in a later step. Finally, draw a line across the bottom part of the head to create the nose.

Step 2 – Horn and Eye

Now, let’s tackle the iconic unicorn horn and eye. Begin drawing the horn from where the head line ends, forming a twisted, spiral shape. Connect the sides of the horn with small lines to enhance the twisted effect. Next, draw a small curved line centered below the horn, resembling a smile. From this eye line, draw eyelashes pointing downwards.

Step 3 – Mane and Ears

Drawing the mane and ears requires attention to detail. Start by drawing the unicorn’s bangs on one side of the horn. Then, create a backward C-shaped curve from the side of the eye, moving up to the unicorn horn, and then towards the back of the head (using the neckline as a reference). Connect this line back to itself just below the top line.

For the ears, draw a curved triangle shape resembling a sail, leaving off the bottom line. Inside the ear, draw another triangle following the outer shape, and don’t forget the back ear – a small triangle on top of the bangs. To complete the mane, start behind the ear and draw a long S-shaped line that ends near the bottom of the ear. You can add smaller mane pieces curling under the ear for added detail.

Step 4 – More Mane

To give the unicorn’s hair more depth, add additional mane pieces using various curved lines. Refer to the visual guide for inspiration, but feel free to get creative with your own style. Place these strands beneath the longer piece of the mane you drew in the previous step.

Step 5 – Stars

To add a magical touch, draw a necklace of stars below the head. These stars will enhance the unicorn’s neckline. Draw three big stars across the neckline, and sprinkle a few smaller stars for extra sparkle.

Step 6 – Color

Finally, it’s time to bring your unicorn to life with colors! Unicorns are renowned for their vibrant rainbow hues, so let your imagination run wild. Experiment with shades of yellow, brown, golden orange, or any other colors that strike your fancy.
