How To Draw A Cow That Looks Cool Using Rectangles

Learning how to draw a cow using small rectangles and squares can be a fun exercise. Indeed, this cute character is usually drawn using long curved lines and circular shapes. Using simpler and sharper shapes like a rectangle can help you sketch a more accessible version of this animal.

The fun thing about cows is that they are easily recognizable. The most noticeable aspect of a cow are the patches. If you can draw small horns and a basic udder, then it's even better. The body is large and the tail is drawn using a thin shape. Ready? Let's see how we can illustrate the character above using only a few basic elements.

First, you can start this tutorial by sketching the body using a large rectangle. Make sure this one is wide enough so that it can hold more body parts like the head and the tail. You also need enough space to sketch several dark patches.
