How to draw a reindeer

Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Draw two ovals for the head and body of the reindeer. Draw a line, which will act as the center of its head.

Step 2

Draw shapes for the animal’s body and neck. Add a smooth guideline for its tail.

Step 3

Use guidelines to define places for the legs, and mouth of the reindeer.

Step 4

Sketch the legs, hoofs and snout of the animal. Define, with curved lines, the antlers.

Step 5

Draw the eyes, tail and partially draw the antlers of the reindeer. Detail the shape of its hoofs.

Step 6

Add the ears and joints. Add the deer’s nose, eye, snout and antlers.

Step 7

Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 8

Contour the reindeer, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
