How To Draw Cartoon Rabbit

Drawing cartoon rabbit may seem little complicated, I know. This time I have chosen a typical cartoon pose of rabbit holding a carrot.


I am absolutely sure that you can draw it, simply by following this tutorial.

Some people cannot even imagine themselves to be able to draw not only this rabbit but anything at all.

Yet, when they follow this tutorial, it would be nearly impossible not to be able to draw it :)

Before you begin the drawing observe the picture for a while. Observe the size and proportions of the body, head, and ears.

Let’s Draw Cartoon Rabbit

Draw a circle and a noodle (or pear / bean) shaped thing as you see on the picture. The circle is the head and the pear-shape is the body.

Bottom of the pear is fatter that the upper part. Notice how the upper part overlaps the head circle – but only a little.

Add the perspective guidelines around the head as you see on the picture. These guidelines will help you to correctly position the eyes and the nose of your rabbit.

Draw the eyes above the horizontal guideline. The nose is placed where the guidelines cross.

Draw the cheeks. Add the ears and the arms as you see on this picture. It is OK if the shapes of the ears are a little different than this.

When you draw the arms, notice how the arm contour curve naturally comes out from behind the shoulders. Try to make it this way.

Draw the legs and the tail. The arm curves and the legs curves may look a little difficult…so use your pencil tenderly. Do not push the pencil hard!

The shape of your cartoon rabbit is now clearly visible.

Now, let’s concentrate on the face. Draw the inner line in the ear and iris ellipse inside of the eyes. Add the nose. Draw the mouth and the teeth.

Since rabbits like carrots, this one likes carrot too :) Outline the contours of the carrot. Draw the eyebrows and add the fingers on the legs.

As you may have noticed, I messed up the teeth on the previous picture so I erased unnecessary thick black pencil lines.

Now, take a softer pencil; B4 or B6 (if you don’t have them then use HB) and outline the contours of the entire character. Darken the nose but leave a small bright dot on it.

Erase everything that is not necessary. Your rabbit should look something like this.

Except standard or kneaded eraser I also recommend using pencil-type-eraser.

You can color your rabbit only by graphite pencil - the same as this one – or you can use colored pencils instead.

If you use graphite pencil, then shade the whole rabbit’s body as you see on the picture. The cheeks, inside of the ear, belly, the paws and the tail can remain white or brighter.

Cool :) Your cartoon rabbit is ready. I recommend to RE-draw it again – it will be much quicker, and then show or give it to someone :)
