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

Step 1: We can start by drawing the hippo's head. Draw a curve a bit like a backwards 'C'.

Step 2: Next you can add some features to the face. Add a small circle for the eye, two tiny bean shapes for the ears, a line for the nose and a smiley mouth!

Step 3: Now we can draw the body. Draw one curve leading down from the left ear and curving at the bottom of the body. Join the head between the ears. Finally add a straight line down from the chin

Step 4: The last step is to add the legs. Draw two little semi-circles for the front legs in the middle of the tummy, then two at the bottom of the body for the hind legs.
