Step-By-Step Guide On How To Draw A Cute Cow

each step in this drawing lesson for making a cute cow. Dotted lines represent each line to draw per step

Step 1. Draw The Body

Begin by sketching two circles of equal size, leaving a small gap between them.

Step 2. Connect the Body Shapes

Now, draw a curved line connecting the tops of the circles to form the cow’s back. Add a wider curve at the bottom to shape the belly.

Step 3. Create The Hind Legs

step for drawing the bulls legs, dotted lines represent what to draw

On the left side of the body, around the middle of the circle, draw a narrow, diagonally angled triangle. Erase the circle.

Then, create two rectangles for the hind legs, slightly angled away from each other at the bottom.

Step 4. Draw The Front Legs

rectangles for front legs to be created

Now draw two more rectangles for the front legs. The leg on the left side is wider than the right.

Therefore, both legs are placed more to the right side of the circle rather than centered.

Step 5. Make The Hooves And Udder

Erase the front circle and the lines on top of the legs. Draw triangular-shaped hooves with rounded peaks resembling mountains.

The back hooves peak on the right side of the leg, while the front hooves peak closer to the middle. Add a half-circle udder extending slightly past the back left leg and forward.

Step 6. Draw The Head

step for drawing a bull's face

Outline the head with three basic shapes: a wide, curved “C” for the top of the head, a broad oval for the cheek area extending beyond the sides of the top of the head, and a circular shape for the chin.

Now add teats diagonally on each side.

Step 7. Create The Horn And Ears

Erase the lines connecting the teats to the udders. Then draw small oval ears just above the cheeks, with pointed outside tips. Next, add inner ear details, repeating the same shape but smaller.

Position the cow’s horns slightly higher on the head, slightly to the sides, each consisting of two curved lines meeting.

Step 8. Draw The Cute Eyes

ovals made for creating the eyes

These sweet farm animals use their eyes to express emotions, so keep that in mind when drawing the shapes of the eyes. 

Sketch two ovals in the middle of the upper head, starting from where the cheek meets the upper portion. Create smaller ovals inside each for pupils.

Now draw circles inside the pupils and color them white for a cartoonish effect. Then add a wavy line for the tail, with a rounded wedge shape at the end to depict the hair switch.

Step 9. Add Details To The Cow’s Face And Body

step for drawing the bull's body and facial details

First, draw the muzzle, the same width as the outer edges of the eyes, touching the bottom of the eyes.

Now create two “C” shapes facing each other and connecting with a subtle curve in the middle.

Then place two small circles in the middle of each “C” for the nostrils.

Next, add eyebrows and two long teardrop shapes above each eye. Lastly, include irregularly shaped spots on the fur, placed randomly.
