Step-by-Step Guide: Drawing a Cute Unicorn

Paper Position

Step 1: Set the Stage

Position your paper horizontally, allowing you to utilize the entire space for your unicorn drawing.

Step 2: Shaping the Unicorn’s Head

Begin by sketching the basic shapes of the unicorn’s head. Start with a vertical line and gradually form a U shape for the mouth, followed by a gentle curve for the jaw, stopping slightly before the starting point.

Step 3: Defining the Unicorn’s Body

Now, draw the chest by extending a curved line down from the jaw.

Continue by sketching the front legs. Extend a straight line from the middle of the chest, curving it downward. Square off the bottom to form the hoof. Repeat this process for the other front leg, drawing a vertical line from the bottom of the chest and adding a small line to create the belly.

Next, draw the hind legs. Begin with a line extending downward from the rear of the unicorn’s body. Form wider thighs and add a curved section at the back of the knee, known as the hock. Connect another hind leg, following a similar shape, from the belly area.

Step 4: Crafting the Unicorn’s Mane

Create a line starting from the top of the unicorn’s face, then draw a curved line upward to form an ear. Continue by drawing a simple line down the back of the head to the base of the unicorn. To create a flowing mane, section it off with gentle curves, allowing you to add different colors to your unicorn’s hair later. Continue the sections until you reach the line from the back. Don’t forget a small piece of hair in front of the ear.

Step 5: Adding Extra Features

Draw the unicorn’s horn in a simple triangle shape at the front of its head. Extend the unicorn’s tail, following the same sectioning technique used for the mane.

Now, it’s time to add facial features. Sketch a curved line to form the mouth, creating a slight smile. For the eye, draw a small circle with a smaller circle inside.

Step 6: Perfecting Your Drawing

Erase any unnecessary lines from your unicorn drawing, leaving behind the refined contours. You can trace over the lines with a darker pencil or marker to enhance the final result. Once you’re satisfied with the simple lines, your unicorn drawing is complete.

Step 7: Infusing Magic with Colors

The final step is to color your unicorn drawing and bring it to life. Let your creativity run wild as you fill the mane with vibrant hues and add a splash of color to the iconic long horn. Make this artwork truly your own.
