Illustrating a rhino clipart from a front perspective can be a challenging task. Clipart images are usually quite simple and rhinos are often harder to draw from such a view compared to other animals. Fortunately, this simple drawing lesson should help you reach this goal easily and quickly.
Rhinos are large animals that can weigh up to a single tonne. That are easily recognizable because they have two large horns right above the mouth. Below you can see the version of this animal you are about to illustrate. It's relatively simple and mostly made from basic shapes. Ready? Let's start this tutorial now! :)
First, you can draw the body of the cartoon rhino using a large rectangle. I like to use a thick outline to make the cartoon character easier to read and more enjoyable to look at. Next, draw two large circles to form the eyes and two smaller ones to create the pupils. When you are done, you can proceed to the next step!
Ears are made from a simple triangle that is slightly modified. Make sure these ears are pointed and raised above the head. The horn just below the eyes is also made from a triangle. The second one is smaller and hidden behind the large one, so we don't have to draw this part of the rhino. Next, create a small tail using another triangle with a sharp end. Finally, four lines are drawn to create the front legs.
Below the horn, two small circular shapes are drawn to represent the nose. A long curved line is added to form the mouth. Once again, this one is done using small pointed ends. Continue adding details by sketching small oval shapes on the feet. That's pretty much it for the drawing aspect of this lesson. It's time to add colors! :)
Most of the cartoon character is filled with a dark grey color. The pupils are much darker, just like the nose. The eyes and the horns are white. Great job! This beautiful rhino clipart is now completed.
Below you can see all four steps needed to create the animal. As you can see, only basic shapes are needed to end up with this amusing rhino. Only the ears and the horn are slightly more challenging to duplicate. If you want to try more rhinos, then you are invited to draw this fun cartoon rhino as well as this other interesting version of the animal. Have fun with these tutorials and happy drawing! :)
