How to Draw a Cartoon Giraffe - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Let's go! We will start by drawing the head and mouth. First, draw a small circle and off to the bottom left, add another small circle for the mouth. Add on a cute smile to your giraffe.

Step 2: Next, it's time to add the eyes and nose. Place two dots next to one another and another dot below those two, placed right in the middle.

Step 3: Time for the ears. Near the top of the bigger circle, add two almond-shaped ears with a line through the middle of both.

Step 4: In between the two ears, now add two tiny horns to your giraffe.

Step 5: We will now start the body of our giraffe! From the base of both circles, draw two lines downward. They should be parallel to one another. We now have the neck!

Step 6: Continue to left-most line a little further down. For the right-most line, draw a horizontal line off to the right with a slight downwards curve at the end.

Step 7: Now there's the fun part! It's time to draw the legs. We will start off to the left with the first front leg. Draw a vertical line downward and very close to that, draw another line parallel to the first. Repeat this step once more. At the base of the three vertical lines, draw in two hooves. Move a bit off to the right and repeat the previous steps to create the back legs.

Step 8: There should be a space between each set of legs. Here, draw a slightly curved horizonal line to connect the legs and create the giraffe's stomach.

Step 9: You are so close! At the end of the giraffe's body, draw in a curved tail with a tuft of hair on the end.

Step 10: Use your creativity and draw in all the shapes and sizes to create the giraffe's unique coat.
