Before learning how to draw a rabbit: some fun facts before starting sketching!

  • A rabbit can see behind him without even turning its head!
  • The teeth of a rabbit never stop growing!
  • In winter, a rabbit will not hibernate.

Step 1

How to draw a rabbit step 1

How to draw a cartoon rabbit is easy when you know what you should look for in this sweet animal. Of course, the ears (2) are the first part of the rabbit that comes to mind. Look also for the little pink nose (1), big rear claws (5), and a puffy tail (4). The rabbit can be black, white, brown, or a mix of several colors.

Step 2

The rabbit is made mostly of circles. Notice how the lower body is strong and firm. This animal is fast and agile and it's important to display these elements in our drawings. 

The head is small compare to the rest of the body. It's not unusual to see a cartoon rabbit with long ears but as you can see, they are not that long after all. The neck is rather large but this only an illusion.

Step 3

For this example, let's try to sketch something with more style. First, draw the head, the ears and the body using circles and rectangles with round edges. Then, connect those parts using small rectangles. 

Sketch the feet and the legs of our character. Continue with the hands and the arms. Add the details on the face, the feet and the tail. Here you go!

Step 4

Rabbits have many physical uniqueness that you can exaggerate. Just choose the ones you want to put emphasis on (the ears, the nose, the teeth, the feet) and use your imagination to create some funny rabbits!
