How to Draw a Cute Reindeer – Step by Step Tutorial
Step 1. Start from a simple line! Draw a line from top to the bottom.
Step 2. Drawing his faceline. We want to give cute and round cheeks 🙂
Step 3. Let’s add some ears. Draw same shape of ears on both side.
Step 4. We’re drawing his head part. Remember, he has 2 big horns coming out, so we want to give 2 “bumps” – they are for horns. We will draw those at the end!
Step 5. Next we are drawing his face parts. Draw large cute eyes. He’s also got a big nose . Draw a line under the nose, we’re drawing a mouth that connects to it.
Step 6. He’s a happy Reindeer. Give a big smile! I am adding 2 circles on cheeks, after the drawing you can color them as pink 🙂
Step 7. How about giving him a big bell and a collar. The bell can be as big as his mouth!
Step 8. Draw zig-zag lines…. he’s wearing a warm fur.
Step 9. Now we are drawing his body. First, draw two front legs.
Then stomach – back leg. Draw a curvy line and connect on top of his fur.
Step 10. And the most fun part! Drawing his horns.
Draw big, nice looking horns! You can design however you want. If it’s a bit tricky, then you can go ahead and download my practice sheet of reindeer and trace my horns to practice.
FINISH! Yay! We did it – GOOD JOB!
On my video I’ve added some snow falling. You can do that too!
