Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Goat Face
How to Draw a Great Looking Goat Face for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin the goat face outline by drawing its eyes. First, use two curved lines to trace the double-pointed shape of each eye. Then, draw a curved line across the inner corner. Next, shade two overlapping ovals within each eye.
This forms the horizontal slit characteristic of goat eyes. These strangely shaped pupils allow goats to have a wide range of vision to look out for predators while limiting blinding light from the sun overhead.

2. Draw a short line near the inner corner of each eye, outlining the sides of the goat's nose. Use two curved lines to trace the top and bottom of the nose itself. Shade two thick curved lines to indicate the nostrils.
