Drawing a zebra scares you? Well, if you already now how to draw a horse, you should not be! But if a horse is a great challenge for you, then try this tutorial! What does the zebra have that the horse doesn't?

The zebra has black and white stripes (2) and a mane (3) on top of the head. This is pretty basic. But the two animals are really similar otherwise.

Step 2

The shape of the zebra are simple to figure out. A big oval represents the body. The legs are made of rectangles. The head is made of a circle and the jaw is drawn with a rectangle. 

The tail is composed of a small oval shape while the mane is made of a curved line. But don't worry. We will draw a much simpler zebra for this example.

Step 3

First, draw two rectangles, one for the head and another one for the body. Then, join these two shapes by working the outline of your zebra. Add a line to form the nose of your character. 

Then, you can add some ears, the mane and the tail. Continue your creation by sketching the legs. Finally, draw the eyes, the nose and the stripes.

Step 4
