Step 1

How to draw a cartoon kangaroo step 1

Let's try to draw a nice kangaroo! But how exactly does this animal looks like? The kangaroo has long and large ears (1), long four toed feet (4) and a long thick tail (3).

Ok, everything about this animal seems to be long! But wait before you see one jump! The female kangaroo is also well-known for her pouch located on her stomach.

Step 2

When looking at the shapes of a kangaroo, we can almost see a mix of the head of a deer, the tail of a mouse and the feet of a bunny! The head and the body are made of circles.

The tail, the arms and the legs are made with rectangles. Take a special look at the size of the feet, the tail and the neck. You can also draw a pouch if you prefer to draw a female.

Step 3

For this example, we will draw a simple jumping kangaroo. First, draw a big circle for the body and a small one for the head. Then, connect these two circles with a rectangle. You can also draw the feet with rectangles and the tail using a line as a guide. 

Continue your work by working on the outline. You can add the arms, the nose and the eyes. Finish your kangaroo by drawing details like the pupils and the ears.

Step 4

You can always play with the size of your kangaroo and draw a small one (3), a tall skinny one (4) or one with proportions being more accurate (1). Just remember to draw a long tail, big feet and a pouch if you want to make sure that your character really looks like a kangaroo!
