Hi! Japanese Illustrator, Koko here.
Today we’re drawing a Unicorn! A cute, kawaii unicorn.
This drawing can be a bit difficult, it has a lot of lines and a complicated posture. 😅
Don’t feel frustrated if you can’t draw good, keep practicing!

How to draw a cute Unicorn
Are you ready to draw a cute Unicorn? Let’s start!
|On this drawing I recommend to draw with a pencil first , and trace the finished line with a pen.
The reason is on Step 7, the front hair covers a forehead – if you don’t like this crossing line you can erase if you use a pencil.
But if you don’t bother, then go ahead and draw with a pen to begin with – up to you!
Step 1. Simply we start from drawing an ear. Triangle shape.
Step 2. Draw from the ear, we’re drawing Unicorn’s face. It’s a bit difficult line, try to give a nice puffy cheek because it looks cuter 😁
Step 3. From the other side of the ear, we’re going to draw his (or her??? I can’t decide whether it’s a boy or girl 😂 ) neck line, and extend to a bit of chest.
Step 4. Let’s draw his (okay, I decided that it’s a boy ☺️) front leg. It looks cuter when the legs are a bit thick and short. And the width is wider on the bottom – try this style, it’s like Japanese anime character that way and very cute I think!
Step 6. This is his back leg. Same style as the first leg – round and thick leg looks cute 🙂 The bottom part if a bit wider.
Step 7. Now adding hair. Let’s try to draw fluffly, airy, nice soft hair…
Step 8. Don’t forget the front hair. Now here, the hair may covers the forehead a bit of it.
Step 9. Here we are adding a horn! 😁 It’s the most characteristic part of Unicorn,
Step 10. We’re now drawing his full body. Try to draw a curvy line like the sample below. We start off from under his chin, draw a neck and go round his cute butt, then continue to back leg.
|Please draw this leg’s hoof as well! I forgot to add here… 😅 it’s on Step 21, very end, if you want to see. Sorry about this!|
Step 11. Draw a line of his stomach, connecting between the legs.
Step 12. Now we draw his tail! He has a very nice tail with soft hair.
Step 13. Continue drawing a tail, Let’s go dynamic! Give a lot of curves, this way the tail looks like fluffy.
Step 14. Finishing the tail.
Step 15. Now we’re moving on to his face 🙂 So far So good? Let’s start from eyebrows. They look nice when eyebrows are small lines.
Step 16. Let’s give big eyes! Draw an egg-shaped eye here. Add 1 line on the side, it’s an eyelash.
Then add a line inside, you can fill it in if you want, up to you!
Step 17. Repeat for the other side of the eye. Note: the shape of the eye is going to be different because of the angle. Let’s try to draw a bit skinnier eye-shape.
Step 18. Adding nose. Two small lines.. we’re almost finished – keep going!
Step 19. This is going to his mouth. Nice line, slightly up at the end …
Step 20, Finished! Now doesn’t he look like happy, cute Unicorn?
Step 21. …but HEY. Have you noticed, that I forgot to add his hoof? (nail part.) 😅 Sorry about that – here I am adding, at last.
FINISHED!!!!!!! whew, it was a long tutorial maybe… hope you could follow!
This is all for today!
