How to Draw A Deer

Dear, let's learn how to draw a deer that consists of a simple cartoon character that you and I can easily duplicate! It's true! This cartoon illustration was created from a simple template and most people won't have any trouble duplicating this fun character.

It might be a little bit more complex than the other ones from the same collection, but overall it is still a simple design to draw. Take a quick look at the illustration below and when you are ready, let's proceed with the first step! :)

Step 1

Good! Let's begin with the addition of the head using a large circle. Don't use a perfect circular shape, but rather something closer to a square. Use a similar shape to form the mouth area just below the head.

Step 2

Next, draw another circular shape to illustrate the body. Make sure this new shape is slightly smaller than the one used to form the head. The legs are made from long rectangles. Each hoof is made from small rectangles.

The antlers are made from large circles filled with small triangles. In this case, they are symmetrical, but you can change the patterns and create something more irregular. Both eyes are made from large circles.
