Step 1

Draw the rabbit’s silhouette on the paper. Use simple geometric shapes like sphere and oval to draw the rabbit’s head and body respectively.

Step 2

Use simple lines to draw the rabbit’s trunk, ears, and legs. This will serve as your outline. Do not forget to sketch a lower lip.

Step 3

Sketch the rabbit’s eyes, nose, mouth and cheek. Start drawing the animal’s feet and tail too.

Step 4

Mark the most fluffy rabbit’s parts with single strokes.

Step 5

Now start working on fur: erase or intensify lines, make fur “layer” look denser or vice versa. Do not forget to erase unnecessary lines and intensify your strokes. So, the rabbit is ready!
