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

Step 1: Today we are going to draw a goat! First, create one larger circle with another smaller circle off to the bottom right. Add a small curved line to give your goat a big smile.

Step 2: Next, give your guy an eye by adding a circle at the middle of the larger circle.

Step 3: Off to the right end of the smaller circle, add another very small curved line for the nostril.

Step 4: Next, at the base of the small circle, add a small patch of hair for your goat's beard.

Step 5: At the top of the head, we will want to create two ears. Do this by drawing in two cone-shaped ears, both with a line through the center.

Step 6: All goats need their horns! These will be drawn in between the two ears. Add some curve to the lines and make sure they are sharp and pointy at the end.

Step 7: It is now time to start the body. First, draw a slightly curved line down from the right side of the head. At the left end of the head, draw a horizontal line off to the left, curving it downward at the end.

Step 8: This is the tricky part - the legs! We want the front legs to overlap. First, draw two parallel lines in the vertical direction from the right end of the goat. Behind this, add another vertical line that is slightly diagnoal. On the back end, draw two shorter parallel lines for one hind leg. For the other hind leg, start the first line a bit further up on the body of the goat and create a vertical line downward. Draw in another line parallel to this one. At the base of all legs, draw in the hooves.

Step 9: There should be a space between the front and hind legs. Here, add in a slightly curved line for the belly.

Step 10: Lastly, we need to add a tail! At the left end of the goat, add a small cone-shaped tail.
