Drawing Animals


Wanted to learn about drawing animals for a long time? I show you many simple techniques and shortcuts that will speed up and simplify your drawing endeavor significantly...

...because drawing animals is FUN



You will soon experience that it is easy to draw animals.
It may seem unbelievable for you how deceptively simple it is at first.

I always say that drawing is easy. It is true. But you cannot get better only by reading about drawing or watching other people’s drawings.

It is the same, as you cannot hire anyone to do the pushups for you and expect your muscles growing…

You have to get a pencil and draw and draw and draw.

Everyone is doing that in the beginning. I was doing it and still doing. Each drawing of an animal goes with an easy to follow step-by-step guide.

Follow the process and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by your own results. In many cases I started the picture with only a simple clumsy pencil line, almost ridiculously ugly.

You can then witness how easily and effortlessly I’ve developed the shape of that “difficult” animal.

The same process is now available to you.

There is very little difference in drawing humans or animals or any other object. It is only in how we see the object.

Once you learn how to capture the shapes, it will be gradually easier and easier.

Yes, I admit, there are easy to draw animals and so called: “not so easy animals” to draw…but, let’s be honest here; isn’t it again only in a way how we see and observe them?




If you are totally clueless, one of the best ways is to get a tracing paper and copy as many pictures of animals as possible.

This technique lets you capture the contours and the perfect shape of an animal.

Your hand remembers the pencil strokes you make!  It is very interesting!

This is also one of the learning techniques and is very effective.

Try it and you’ll see surprising results. It works.

You can also begin drawing cartoon animals first. Consider it as a training exercise. They are very easy to follow and you will proceed really fast.

After practicing a few cartoon animals first, come back here and start drawing some real animals.
