By following the simple steps, you too can easily draw a perfect Eeyore.
"It's not much of a tail, but I'm sort of attached to it."
Eeyore describes himself as "just a gloomy old donkey." He is known for eating thistles and losing his tail. Eeyore has also been known to write poetry. Since Eeyore is a stuffed animal, Christopher Robin can always reattach his tail with a pin.
Eeyore first appeared in the children's book Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne. He got his name from the braying sound that a donkey makes.

Eeyore makes his home at the southeast corner of the Hundred Acre Wood, a place labeled as "Eeyore's Gloomy Place: Rather Boggy and Sad." There, he builds a hut of sticks which often falls on him and offers no protection from the rain.
Eeyore has appeared in numerous books, movies, television series, and articles of merchandise. Eeyore can be met "in person" at various Disney World and Disneyland parks, near the Pooh attractions.

3. Draw Eeyore's eyes, erasing as necessary. For each eye, enclose an egg shape. Draw a curved line across it to indicate the eyelid, and draw a small partial circle at the bottom to form the pupil.

9. Draw Eeyore's famous tail. First, use a curved line to enclose the rounded shape of the pin that holds the tail on. Then, extend a pair of curved lines to form the tail. Draw a circle at the bottom, forming the center of the bow. Enclose a rounded shape on each side of the knot, and contour it with a curved line. Finally, use several curved lines that meet at jagged points to form the tuft at the end of the tail.
