Before You Start

Let’s take a look at some bunnies first, shall we? You may know what a bunny looks like, but it’s always good to refresh your memory before you start drawing.

1. How to Draw a Bunny Head

Step 1

Draw an oval—this will be the forehead. Draw it very lightly, because it’s just a guide line for later. The smaller it is, the smaller the whole drawing will be, and drawing small is a good way to keep the proportions right! Also, you don’t need to draw the whole oval with one continuous line—draw it with short, subtle lines, and then connect them.

Step 2

Draw a circle below. Keep sketching, and don’t press too hard!

Cross the circle with a “smile”. This will help us place the cheeks properly.

3. How to Draw a Bunny Body

Step 1

Add a body to the head. You can choose any shape and size you wish. I decided to use a fat egg shape for a half-realistic, half-cartoon style.

4. How to Finish the Drawing of a Bunny

Step 1

Time to finish the drawing! If you’ve been drawing digitally, create a new layer for these final lines. If you’ve been drawing traditionally, either take a darker tool to cover the lightly drawn sketch, or put a new sheet of paper on top to draw the final lines here.

Outline the shape of the eyes.
