How to Draw a Baby Hippopotamus - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Lets get started by drawing the Hippo's head. Draw two half circles to make the nose, and then a third to make the top of the head. Now all we have to do is add a little more detail. Draw two dots for the eyes and two for the nose, then add ears and the hippos teeth.

Step 2: Now we'll draw Hippo's back with a long curving line. We'll leave a little space though, and add a small tail as the last touch for this step.

Step 3: All that's left now is the feet! Draw two pairs of feet and then draw two lines to make the hippo's belly. One line will be short and the other longer connecting to the hind legs. Last, we'll draw two lines up from both pairs of legs finishing the hippo's body.
