Drawing a cartoon giraffe is not so difficult since this animal has so many physical uniqueness to choose from! Whether it's the long neck (3), the brown manes (6) or the short hairy horns (1), this animal is very easy to recognize, so therefore, should be easy to draw too!

Step 2

Let's take a look at our giraffe! The body is made of a simple circle. The neck could be represented by small rectangles to imitate the flexibility of the bones. The legs are made with long but thin rectangles.

The head is a little more irregular but still easy to draw. The horns and the ears are made, in this case, with simple straight lines.

Step 3
