How to Draw Rudolph for Kids
- Draw the head.
Draw a circle, after which on the left side you need to select the pointed part of the future face. See example instructions.
- Draw the horns.
To make it easier, imagine inverted chicken legs in front of you. Please note that the horns are located at a short distance from each other and should be approximately the same shape.
- Add details for the head.
First, draw an arched ear on the right side of the head. From one point inside the ear, draw two short lines, slightly different in length. Also, on the sharp protrusion of the head (muzzle), draw a circle of small diameter – you get a nose. Then add two small black ovals for the eyes. Draw lines above the eyes – the deer now has eyebrows. On the right side of the head, at the bottom, draw the mouth with a small, curved line.
- Draw the body.
The body of a deer is an oval, the upper side of which is slightly concave inward.
- Draw the front legs.
Please note: one leg is straight in place, and the other is slightly bent at the knee. Draw a narrow rectangle, next to it – the second, divided into two legs by a fold.
- Draw the hind legs.
This step of the lesson is similar to the previous one: draw a pair of rectangles of different lengths in the opposite part of the body.
- Draw the hooves and neck.
Draw horizontal lines at the bottom of each leg to represent the deer’s hooves. Don’t forget about the neck: connect the head and torso with two straight lines.
- Draw the tail and bell.
Now you can move on to the tail. Draw a curved line with three vertices. To add a bell to the deer, draw a semi-oval at the junction of the neck and torso and close it with a short line. Draw a bell tongue with a tiny semi-oval underneath.
- Color your drawing.
We painted the picture like this: the body and legs of the deer are painted light brown, and the tail, ear and horns are darker browns, the hooves are dark gray, the nose is bright red, the bell is yellow. Feel free to get creative at this stage.
