How to Draw A Zebra

Learn how to draw a zebra and enjoy a simple front view of this black and white cartoon animal! If you know how to draw a horse, then you probably already know how to draw this fun zebra. However, side views are always tougher to create. That's why I am offering this tutorial that should be easier and more amusing to complete!

Step 1

Let's begin this drawing lesson with the creation of the head. To draw this shape properly, start by sketching a large circular shape. As you can see below, I am not using a perfect circle, but rather a shape with rough corners. Then, create a smaller shape inside to illustrate the jaw.

Step 2

Next, use another circle to form the body. This new shape must be as large as the head. The legs are drawn using small rectangles. The hooves are illustrated with smaller triangles.

Step 3

The ears are represented by small triangles with round corners. The mane on top of the head is illustrated with curved lines. On the right of the illustration, you can draw a long tail using two more curved lines.

Step 4

Cool! Let's work on the eyes using large circular shapes. The pupils are also created using circles. Once you are ready, you can also draw the nose using small dots. The mouth is created from a single line.

Step 5

Time to make sure this character doesn't look like a horse! First, draw small triangles inside the ears. Then, add small oval shapes inside the pupils. Finally, draw small stripes on the head and the body. 

Step 6

Great! Now this cute cartoon character looks like a real zebra. All you need to do is fill this character with black, white and grey to end up with something simple, but really effective. 

As you can see, drawing a front version is much easier. You can also try a side version of a zebra made entirely from squares and rectangles. If you prefer to work on a more traditional design, this fun zebra made from simple shapes is also worth a look! :)
