Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Bunny

How to draw an easy bunny rabbit

1. Draw an irregular circular shape, a bit wider at the bottom than at the top. This will form the bunny's head.

2. Draw the bunny's ears. For each ear, enclose a long, narrow shape using a curved line.

3. Draw an oval beneath the bunny's head. This will form the body.

4. Connect the head and the body using curved lines. On the bunny's chest, overlap several curved lines to indicate fur.

5. Erase the guide lines from the bunny's body.

6. Draw a curved line through the bunny's body, nearly enclosing a circle. This is the bunny's leg. Draw the foot, using a curved line to enclose a rounded shape beneath the leg.

7. Draw the bunny's front feet. Use a curved line to enclose an irregular shape beneath the bunny's chest. Then, enclose a second shape behind the first using a short, curved line.

8. Draw the bunny's fluffy tail. Use a number of curved lines to enclose an irregular shape.

9. Add detail to the bunny's face. Enclose a long, narrow shape within each ear. Draw a dot for each eye, perhaps leaving a tiny speck uncolored to indicate the shine of the eyes. Enclose a small round shape to form the nose, and extend a short line beneath it. From the short line, draw two short, curved lines to form the mouth. Then, enclose a rounded square beneath the mouth to outline the teeth. Draw a vertical line down the middle to separate the teeth. Finally, draw long, curved lines extending outward from the nose to form whiskers.

10. Color your bunny. Our example is cream colored, but rabbits come in a variety of colors and patterns - black, white, brown, grey, blonde, and spotted.
