Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Rabbit
How to Draw a Great Looking Rabbit for Kids, Beginners, and Adults - Step 1
1. Begin the rabbit outline by drawing the face. This cute bunny has big, round eyes that are slightly pointed at the corners.
Inside the eye, draw a curved line, and shade the round shape to indicate the pupil. Draw a small boomerang shape for the wiggly nose, and trace the front of the face using a curved line.

2. Draw the ear of the cartoon rabbit using a pair of curved lines that meet at a gentle point. At the base of the ear, overlap short curved lines in a jagged fashion to lend the appearance of fur.
Draw a rounded “W” below the nose to outline the mouth. On one side, let the arm of the “W” touch the nose. Draw the bunny rabbit’s lower jaw using a curved line.

Color Your Rabbit Drawing
Color your cartoon rabbit. We’ve shaded ours brown with white markings. In the wild, most rabbits are brown and grey to blend in with their surroundings.
Some turn white in the winter so that they are camouflaged in the snow. Pet bunnies come in many colors, including black, brown, white, grey, and spotted.
