This lesson will help you learn to draw a cartoon rhino! This heavy and well-equipped animal (with its two horns) is, strangely, very fragile. The population of rhinos is constantly decreasing!
It would be a shame to lose this big and friendly animal forever! So why not try to draw a nice rhinoceros before loosing all animals from this species, just like we did with dinosaurs!
Let's begin our lesson by sketching the head! Draw a large rectangle to form the jaw of our rhinoceros. Then, add a small circle on top (you can cheat to the right a little) to create the forehead.
Then, add two rectangles to illustrate the ears. For the horns, sketch two triangles, the large one being the one in front.
Now let's create the body! Draw a large and massive rectangle. You can make the bottom a little bit larger. For the legs, just sketch two rectangles for now. The tail can be represented by a single line for the moment.
OK! Time to refine the outline of the head of our rhino! Don't hesitate to sketch a large and strong jaw. You can use straight lines to achieve this effect. The ears can be tiny and pointed.
Now let's give some personality to our animal! Sketch some small oval shapes inside the ears. It will be used to create a subtle shadow. For the eyes, draw some circles or oval shapes, as you prefer. You can draw the nose and add a line around it to isolate this part a little better. Draw a long and curved line to illustrate the mouth.
The body of the rhino should be big and heavy. Just like an elephant, but a little shorter. In my case, I decided to draw the head a little lower. This way, the rhinoceros looks heavier (even slower).
Finally, add some finger to each feet. Don't forget to draw the feet on the opposite side of the rhino. You can also work on the tail to turn your single line into a nice and thick shape.
Just color the whole thing grey and you are done! A nice and colorful (just kidding!) rhino ready to take a long bath in the water followed by a nap under a tree!
Remember to make this animal large and strong. You can also use straight lines to make it more mean and impressive! I hope you had fun drawing this cute cartoon rhino! Happy drawing!
