No need a night vision to learn how to draw an owl with such a cute and adorable design! This fun bird can be drawn using only six easy steps and a few basic shapes. It might be a little bit more challenging than the other characters from the same series, but it is still a tutorial that beginners can achieve. 

Below is a colored sample of the cartoon owl that you are about to create. As you can see, this fun character is mostly sketched using circles. A few triangles are needed to illustrate the beak and the hair on top of the head.
