How to Draw a Penguin Clipart

Sponsored Links

Illustrating a penguin clipart is the most enjoyable thing to do in my honest opinion. Even if it might seem like the simplest character to create, adding all shapes in the right place is still challenging and fun to achieved. Penguins have been drawn in million ways, so adding another picture to this huge list is always a nice exercise. 

To create an original version of this animal, I suggest using the same template used for all characters in this series: a large rectangle to represent the body and some circular shapes to create all other parts of the penguin. Yes, it's a fun and easy tutorial to follow, so don't hesitate to add your own personal touch to this lesson by modifying some aspects of this illustration to make it different ... or simply better! :)

Step 1

You can start this lesson by sketching a huge rectangle to form the body of the animal. Then, you can draw two large circular shapes to illustrate the eyes. Finally, two smaller circles can be drawn inside the eyes to form the pupils. All these shapes can be drawn using a thick outline to make the character visually more interesting.

Step 2

Next, you can add the feet using small oval shapes as shown in the illustration below. The beak is made from irregular lines and must be slightly pointed on the bottom and on top. Once you are finished with this step, you can proceed with the next one.

Step 3

In this final step before adding colors, you can draw the wings of the cartoon penguin using simple curved lines. On the stomach of the animal, another long curved line can be drawn to represent the white patch usually seen on the body of the penguin. Nice work! Let's add more colors to make this character even more appealing.

Step 4

Of course, adding black inside the wings and the body is a good idea. You can also use a dark grey color if you prefer to make the character visually more easy to read. I also selected a bright blue color for the eyes of the character. Finally, the beak and the feet are filled with a bright orange color.

The result? The cutest penguin clipart ever! ;)

Well done! You can see below all four steps needed to come up with a fun cartoon character like this one. It's easy to achieved and fun to work with. If you really enjoy creating cartoon penguins, then you are invited to try this other version mostly made from circles and lines. It's a fun alternative to this character and once again, don't forget to practice often to become even better at drawing. Enjoy!
