1. Cartoon Deer
2. Step 1.
Start this lesson on your cartoon deer by drawing out the shape of the head and then add the facial guidelines as well as the antler guidelines. Next, draw a neckline and attach it to another circle for the torso of the animal that you are drawing. Draw another smaller shape for the butt end, and then add the four limb guidelines.
3. Step 2.
Start drawing out the shape of the deer’s face and snout and then draw a solid eye. Draw the back of the head and under the head which is the neck and chest.
4. Step 3.
Start sketching out the shape and design of the antlers as you see here and then sketch out the deer ear. You will add a nose tip and then draw more of the chest as well as the front lifted leg and hoof.
5. Step 4.
Draw the other front leg and hoof and then draw the shape of the cartoon deer’s belly and some of the hind leg.
6. Step 5.
This is your last drawing step and all you have to do now is finish drawing out the hind legs and hooves and then sketch in a cute little deer tail. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one and move to the line art step to see what your cartoon deer should look like.
