How To Draw Cartoon Penguin

This cartoon penguin is one of the easiest things to draw. It is a cute baby penguin and I hope you will like it.

Even if you are an absolute beginner, you can have this simple penguin drawing ready very quickly.

Penguins are one of the easiest animals to draw because of their relatively simple body shape.

It doesn’t matter much whether you want to draw cartoon or a realistic penguin.





Let’s Draw Cartoon Penguin

Draw a circle and a noodle as you see on this picture. Circle will be the head and the noodle is the body. The space between them will be the neck of the penguin.

Join the body and the head by slightly curved lines. From the lower part of the head circle draw a continuous curved line to the bottom of the body. This line divides the white belly from the dark back.

Draw a horizontally positioned half circle inside of the head circle. This will be the guideline for positioning the eyes and the beak.

Draw the outer contours of the beak as you see on the picture and draw the eye ellipse sitting on the curved line. See how the curved line partially overlaps the lower part of the eye ellipse.

Draw the wings, the legs, and short tail. Draw a cheek line that partially overlaps the lower part of the eye. Cheek line is important. It makes the character look cute and child-like.

Notice that the wings line – they look more like hands than wings – continues naturally from the original (border) line between belly and the back.




Now let’s work out the face part of our cartoon penguin. Draw the opened beak. This penguin is still a child and opened smiling beak makes it look so. Draw the inner ellipses inside the eye as you see on the picture.

Now, use a softer pencil (B4 or B6) and outline the contours of the penguin as you see here. If you don’t have soft pencils it’s OK, a standard HB pencil will be OK too.

Erase all previous pencil lines. I recommend using pencil-type-eraser.

The final step is to darken the back part of penguin’s body and the eye. I recommend working out the eye first and then darkening the rest of the body.

Leave a small white spot inside of the eye iris as light reflection so that it looks more natural. The rest of the iris can be darkened all with same intensity.
