Don't be intimidated by the complexity of this tutorial on how to draw a bull! It's actually quite easy and can be done by anyone even kids! Really! Most parts of this cartoon character are created from basic shapes and no complex patterns or strange elements are required.
It's the perfect tutorial if you are a beginner or don't want to waste time with an advanced tutorial. As you can see below, all you need to know is how to draw a circle of a basic shape to create a similar cartoon animal. :)
First, draw the head using an oval shape like shown below. For the body, simply draw a similar shape. The legs are made from short rectangles with round corners.
Next, you can draw the mouth area using a small rectangle. When you are done, draw the back legs using two additional small rectangles.
The tail can be made from two small curved lines. Ears are illustrated with triangles and the horns are made from a rectangle and a triangle. See illustration below if you need a reference.
Great! We are almost done! The eyes and the pupils can be drawn from large circular shapes. The nose is simply represented by two small dots.
You can complete this drawing lesson with the addition of smaller details. First, add a line inside the ears. Next, draw two oval shapes that should be placed inside the pupils. Finally, draw a long line to form the mouth.
There you have it! A nice cartoon bull. You can draw a bull with more complex shapes if you want to. This version is relatively easy, but it's a good exercise if you want to draw a simple version using a front posture.
These are all six steps needed to sketch this animal. Have fun and don't hesitate to draw more animals from the same series. :)
