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

Step 1: Begin the mara by drawing its head. This can be done by drawing a curvy, sideways "V" shape, with a small triangle nose on the tip.

Step 2: Next, add the ears by drawing two leaf shapes at the top of the head, with the closer one having a curved line through the middle.

Step 3: Now, draw the eye by drawing a large, shaded circle with a smaller white circle within it.

Step 4: To draw the body, draw a curved line coming down from below the ear, and curving back away from the body, ending in a point. A second curved line should come down from the middle of the head.

Step 5: Finally, draw the legs by drawing 3 curved, open-topped rectangle shapes at the front. At the back, draw a curving "L" shaped line down, then follow it back up the other side. A second "L" shape goes behind this hind leg to form the second one.
