In this simple drawing lesson featuring a lamb clipart, you will learn how to sketch this fun cartoon animal using only four basic steps and simple shapes. Not only can you create this animal within minutes, but you can also duplicate this illustration using either a vector application or a simple pencil quickly and easily.
Lambs are young sheep mostly found in Europe and Asia. Domestic sheep are herbivorous animals and more than one billion of these creatures can be found around the world.
You can see below the final illustration once all four steps are completed. As you can see, you can use mostly circles and rectangles to illustrate this cartoon lamb. Ready to draw? Let's proceed with the first step now! :)
Start by adding a large rectangle done using a thick outline. Make sure this rectangle is short and large. Then, draw two ears on both sides of the head using mostly curved lines. These ears must be aligned with the top of the rectangle.
Nice work! In this second step, you can sketch large circular shapes to form the eyes. As you can see below, the eyes are partially hidden. Then, you can draw small circles inside the eyes to illustrate pupils.
On the bottom of the eyes, draw a broken line to create the nose and another small curved line to form the mouth. Both of these lines can be joined by a third straight vertical line.
In this third step, create the wool of the animal using small curved lines. You can add a large shape made of small circular lines on top of the head and on the bottom of the body. The legs are done using small straight lines while the hooves are done using small rectangles.
It's time to add colors! To make sure the wool is visible, you can use a very light grey color to fill in the shape on top and on the bottom of the character. The body and ears are filled with a dark grey color. The pupils and the hooves can be slightly darker. That's it! This adorable lamb clipart is now completed!
