No need to count until ten to learn how to draw a sheep that can be used to help you get some sleep! This tutorial is perfect if you want to depict this cute animal using a simple template. I will show you all you need to know to draw a nice sheep that is easy to recognize and fun to duplicate.
Drawing a sheep might not be the most exciting subject that you can use when learning to draw. It's not so true when you can use a fun template to create a cool version of this animal. Let's see how you could sketch a similar version using only six easy steps.
First, you can illustrate the head with a circular shape. Make this one round, but not too perfect. Think of a square with round corners. A perfect circle can also be fine, but we are looking for something different here.
Next, many small circles are necessary to depict the body and the top of the head of this adorable animal. Since I used a vector software to create this lesson everything is symmetrical. Of course, you don't need to create a perfect shape like this one. In fact, irregular lines are even better and will give more appeal to the cartoon character.
Legs and hooves are illustrated with small rectangles. Notice that both front legs are slightly separated. Also, back legs are higher to give some depth to the final image. When you are done, you can proceed with the next step.
For the ears, you can use small oval shapes that are placed on both sides of the head. Circles used for the eyes are huge while the ones used to create the pupils are smaller.
Complete this lesson by drawing a long and thin nose with a straight line. Use a long curved line to form the mouth. On the pupils, you can also add small oval shapes to give more life to the illustration.
Nice work. With just a few basic shapes and some creativity, you can draw a nice sheep in just minutes. Don't hesitate to try your own version. It's always fun to draw something using our own imagination, our own style.
These are all steps that you need to practice to illustrate this sheep. I hope you had fun learning how to draw a sheep and have fun! :)
