Little, fluffy bunnies give us so much joy! But with a few simple steps, you can bring their loved and adorable little faces to life. Allow your child, or inner child, to explore the world of fantasy and drawings with this easy to follow guide on drawing a baby bunny.
The first thing to keep in mind when drawing a baby bunny is its size. They are much smaller than adult bunnies so your drawing should reflect this. You’ll want to start near the top right-hand corner of the page and draw a small circle. This will be your bunny’s head.
After the head has been drawn, you’ll want to add the body. You’ll want to draw two upside down U’s connected in the middle. Make sure to make the arms and legs short, as baby bunnies tend to be short and stubby.
Next you will draw the eyes. Use two curved lines to gently shape the eyes. Your bunny should appear to be in a state of gentle awe at the world around them. That’s what makes them so endearing.
Finally, add the ears. This is one of the most important aspects of a bunny so be careful to get them right. Draw two crescent shapes, pointing towards the back of the head, emphasizing the roundness of their lovely little ears.
Definition to Add Depth
When you are done with the basic outline, it’s time to add definition to your drawing. To achieve this you can draw small wisps of fur to give the bunny its fuzzy look. You may also want to draw a small nose and mouth, or add a tiny tail as a whimsical touch. Just make sure that none of these details take away from the baby’s size. They should remain very small and dainty.
Enhance the Details
Once the outline is complete and all of the body parts have been drawn, it’s time to add some color and texture. Start by selecting a soft, muted color to fill in the entire drawing with. This will give your bunny a gentle and sweet look. You may also want to add some texture to the fur in certain areas. This can be done by lightly stippling the fur with small dots or lines. This will give the bunny added depth and dimension.
Polish for Perfection
Lastly it’s time to finalize the bunny. Take a few minutes to go over the drawing and add any last-minute details such as shadows and highlights to give the drawing depth and life. And if you want to, you may also want to pop in a few stars or sparkles to make your baby bunny look extra magical.
Drawing a baby bunny may seem difficult and overwhelming at first, but with a bit of practice and patience you’ll soon be able to easily sketch out the most fluffy, sweet, and lifelike baby bunnies with ease. So what harm is there in spending a lazy afternoon huddled up with a piece of paper and a pencil, sketching out your favorite little animals?
