Drawing A Sheep

This cute little design can be a good starting point on your quest to drawing a sheep made from simple shapes! Colors are mostly grey and black and the posture was also selected because of its simplicity and effectiveness. 

The illustration below is the one you must duplicate in this drawing lesson. You can use the illustration on the bottom with all six steps on it if you prefer.

However, some important tips are available with each step, so it's up to you whether you prefer to draw on your own or use my technique to come up with a fun character like this one! :)

Drawing a sheep

Step 1

Drawing a sheep

Great! Let's start with this tutorial by adding the head using a square. All corners must be polished and slightly round. You can use a dark grey color to fill the shape and use an outline with an irregular width.

Step 2

Next, you can draw the body using small circles. Once again, I like to use outlines that are thick in the middle, but pointed on both ends. The body must be filled with a light grey color. You can also use a white color, but if the background is also white, then the result can be harder to read.

Step 3

Cool! Let's add both front legs using small rectangles. You can use the same color as the one used to fill the head.

Step 4

Then, you can also add the legs that are located on the back (not the back of the character, but the back of the drawing and/or the posture). These legs can be filled with a darker color to add some contrast.

Step 5

On top of the head of the cartoon sheep, draw two ears using small triangles. Notice how the ears are pointing towards the ground. For the eyes, simply use two small oval shapes filled in black.

Step 6

Finally, complete this lesson with the addition of the mouth and the nose. Both must be made from curved lines and joined by a single (vertical) straight line. Nice work!

Here is a preview of all steps drawn in a single illustration. Yes, drawing a sheep can be easy using this lesson. Don't hesitate to try more characters from the same series. All animals are different and practicing is always a good idea! :)
