How to Draw A Unicorn

Step 1

This first step is the most important one. Start with the creation of the head using a large oval shape. Add a smaller circle on the bottom to illustrate the jaw. The body is also made from a large oval shape and both front legs are created from rectangles.

Step 2

When you are done, draw two large circles to represent the eyes. As you can see below, the eyes are almost touching each other and they are pretty close to the jaw. Next, draw the back legs using rectangles with round corners.

On top of the head of the unicorn, you can draw a long horn using a pointed triangle. A mane can also be drawn using a long curved line. Finally, sketch some hooves using small rectangles with pointed ends.
