How to draw a bunny – A step by step tutorial
Once you have gathered your materials, you can start drawing. Just make sure that you don’t apply too much pressure on the pencil until step 7 because we will have several excess lines that we will erase later. The easiest way to do this is to apply gentle pressure to the pencil until then.
First, draw the head of the rabbit. In our drawing, the head looks a little bit like a big “C” which is slightly protruding to the left side and has a small wave for the mouth in the lower part.
Tip: If you have difficulties drawing the body of the rabbit in separate parts, you can jump directly to step 4. There you will see how the individual lines will match with each other.
Next is the back, which is directly attached to the head. The curve of this half-curved line extends beyond the head at its highest point by a small amount.
The chest area is marked with a short, slightly curved line.
Now draw the hind legs and the tail of the bunny.
Complete the front legs with two more swinging lines. The excess line that covers the front paw is erased later. Make sure that the soles of all paws are at about the same level. As if they were resting on the ground.
If you want to learn how to draw a rabbit, you should pay special attention to the ears. Start with the first ear that is facing you. A small bulge in the inner part of the ear indicates the area of the inner ear. The back ear is turned away from the observer so that the inner ear is not visible.
Just add the eye and the nose, and you have drawn the cute bunny. Erase all redundant lines on the front legs and ears to complete the drawing. Draw the outlines again with a pencil or use a dark felt tip marker.
Step 8 in how to draw a bunny: Paint it!
Once you have completed the outline of the rabbit, you are welcome to add a little color. In our example, we used a very faint pink for most of the fur. On the ears and cheek, we have added small accents in a slightly stronger pink.
But feel free to experiment while you are coloring the bunny. Take your favorite colors and paint the areas. If you are familiar with watercolor painting, you can also use watercolor for the fur.
