OK! Let's start this drawing tutorial! Sketch the shape of your rabbit using simple black lines. Once you are done, use simple plain colors to enhance your illustration. We are creating a white rabbit, but don't hesitate to use various tones of grey for now. The image needs to be easy to read.
Select all shapes of your rabbit cartoon and use the gradient tool to apply linear fills. Make sure that the bottom part of each shape is darker that the top.
Next, create new shapes to illustrate shadows below the nose, below the head and on top of the front legs. Once you are finished, create circles to form reflections on the pupils and the eyes. You can also create a small round patch behind each white eyes to make these one easier to read since the skin is also white.
Complete your illustration by adding shadows below each ear, on the left side of the head and near the body and the back legs. Your rabbit should be done by now. Since the character is white, it is important to use a light grey tone of color to make the illustration visible. Good job! :)
