To draw this cartoon Owl step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles next to each other for the cartoon owl's eyes. First make four small marks to indicate each circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a button or any other small object with a circular edge. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 2: Inside each eye, on the top left side, draw an oval to represent glare. Draw a smaller oval on the lower right side of each eye for extra glare.
Step 3: Draw a smaller circle in the middle of each eye for the pupils. These smaller circles are made up of short, curved lines that connect the glare ovals. When you get the shapes right, shade in the owl's pupils lightly. Don't overlap the glare ovals as you shade the pupils.
Step 4: Between the eyes, draw a small, curved line similar to the letter C on its side for the top of the beak. Below the curved line, draw a V- shaped line for the bottom part of the owl's beak.
Step 5: Lightly draw a line that slopes from the beak, over the eye on the left and up to the top left. When you get the line right, darken it using short strokes for the owl's feathery brow. Draw a sloping line over the eye on the right too. The combined lines should be similar to the letter V.
