How to Draw Animals Clipart

Sponsored Links

In this section of the website, you will learn to draw animals clipart that are mostly made from simple elements (like circles, rectangles and squares) and filled with plain colors. 

You can use a simple vector application to create these illustrations. These software are now designed to make your life easier and each character can take a few minutes only to create. 

Of course, you can also use a piece of paper and a pencil to sketch and draw these cartoon animals. It's still the best technique to learn how to draw since vector applications are doing most of the hard work for you (which can be great, but not as rewarding as drawing the animal yourself!). 

It's true that the result can be visually more interesting using a vector application, but you won't learn much by dragging a simple square to create a character compared to the feeling of drawing it yourself. 

Below is an example of a typical drawing lesson found in this section. As you can see, the bat clipart is done using a large rectangle and a few circular shapes. Only the wings are made from irregular lines and elements.


Take your time to draw each character carefully. Even if all animals are done using simple lines and shapes, it's important to keep all proportions accurate and make sure that some parts like the eyes and the mouth are placed properly.

My goal in this section of the site is to deliver simple images that are easy to duplicate. That's why I like to use clipart images which are usually simpler and easier to draw compared to a typical cartoon illustration.

Most animals are done using a similar template, so once you are familiar with technique behind the creation of these animals, sketching your own characters and animals should be quite easy. 

As usual, don't forget to practice as often as needed. Even if these clipart images are easy to create, you must sketch and sketch again until you are 100% comfortable duplicating these images perfectly without using any guideline or tutorial. 

Below you can find the list of all animals clipart available in this section of the site. I hope you will have fun sketching these clipart animals! Enjoy! :)
