This tutorial will help you learn how to draw a cartoon hippo. This big and slow animal can be really cute with its two small teeth and large body. An Hippopotamus can live on land as well as in the water! Let's see if you are up to the task of drawing a nice and funny hippo!
The first step is quite simple. Just draw a big circle to create the mouth and then add two small circles on top to form the eyes. Just make sure the eyes are a little more on the right (compare to the mouth).
Next, sketch another circle behind the eyes to form the head of the hippo. When you are done, draw a big oval shape to represent the body. This shape should touch the head and the mouth of the hippo.
Continue sketching your hippo by adding four rectangles. Two will be used for the ears and the other two for the legs. Make sure that the legs are short but very large.
Now it's time to refine our drawing. Work on the outline of the mouth of your animal. You should sketch a little round shape to illustrate the nose of the hippo on the top right section of its mouth.
The outline of the body shouldn't be too hard to achieved. Just make sure that the body looks heavy and round.
We are almost done! You can now add the legs on the opposite side of the hippo. Once you are done, just draw a small tail on the back of the body. Yo can also work on the ears to make them more enjoyable.
Finally, just work on the eyes and add the pupils. Next, add some circles to create the nose and draw some rectangles to illustrate the teeth.
If you wish, you can add some purple or some gray to complete your drawing. And there you have it! A lovely hippo ready to play in the water! I hope you enjoy this tutorial!
