How to draw cartoon cows
Drawing cartoon cows: some fun facts before starting sketching!
- A cow can sleep standing on its feet.
- The stomach of the cow is divided in four separate sections.
- A dairy cow can produce, each day, around 100 to 130 lbs of saliva.
Before drawing some cows, let's take a look at the anatomy of this very well-known animal.
The muzzle of the cow (2) is a little flat and not very long. They have two little horns (1) and small ears.
Of course, it's almost impossible not to mention the black patches (5) and the fore udder (4).
When we take a look at the shapes of the cow, we can see that the legs are rather small and the body looks really heavy. You can also notice that two circles are needed to form the head.
The tail is thin and about two feet in size. So, whether you draw a cow cartoon style or just like a real one, it's important to give a good sense of weight to the body!
For this example, we are going to draw a really cool cow! Start by drawing a rectangle for the body and a circle for the muzzle. Next, let's add the fore udder and the rest of the head.
Draw the outline of the head and the body and erase the rectangles and the circles. Then, add some details to the head like the horns, the ears and the eyes. Complete your drawing with the legs and put some colors to create a perfect cartoon cow!
It's really easy to know how to draw a cow since this animal has many particular physical attributes. It's your turn to try drawing some realistic cows (5) or to go for a more "cartoonish" style (2)(3)(6)!
Just put emphasis on the black patches and the fore udder and you can't go wrong!
