How to Draw an Easy Cow
Drawing a cow may seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be! With the right steps and tools, you can create a realistic and beautiful cow drawing in a few easy steps. Let’s get started!
To draw an easy cow, you’ll need basic drawing supplies – a pencil, erasers, and paper. You may also want to add a ruler and some colored pencils or markers for adding details. Gather all of your supplies in one place so you can get started quickly and stay focused.
Outline the Cow
Before adding details, you’ll need to start with the basic shape of the cow. Begin by sketching two curved, connected semi-circles for the body and head. Then, create a curving diagonal line to represent the back of the cow – this makes the body more three-dimensional. Finally, add a box-like shape for the legs.
Now that you’ve outlined the cow, it’s time to add the details. To do this, you can use finer detailing tools like felt-tip pens or colored pencils. You might want to sketch in details like eyes and a mouth or add muzzle markings and patterns of different colors. Don’t forget to add a curve on the bottom of the body for the tail, and draw in the ears, too!
Create Highlights and Shadow
Bring your cow drawing to life with highlights and shadows. Outline the edges of the body and legs with a thin, dark line for a contour, and fill in sections to create a mix of light and dark hues. For example, you can add a light circle to the head for the eyes, and fill in the muzzle and lower body for a deep, three-dimensional look.
Your cow drawing is almost complete! To give your drawing an extra spark, draw small details like spots, wisps of hair, and wrinkles. Choose colors that will bring out the best in your cow drawing, such as deep browns and whites. If you’re happy with your cow drawing, it’s time to display it and show off your work!
