Steps To Draw A Reindeer
You can see the short demo in the image below. And you can follow the stepwise instructions in detail below. Follow the steps below to easily draw a reindeer step by step.
We are starting by drawing a reindeer’s face. Draw the horizontal oval shape as shown in the image above. Note: use the pencil for this rough part as we will erase it in the further steps.
Draw Vertical Oval
Now draw the vertical oval in the lower part of the horizontal oval, also overlapping the horizontal oval that we drew in step 1 as in the image above. Note: use the pencil for this rough part as we will erase it in the further steps.
Now by using the rough references lines draw the outline of the reindeer as in the image above. Also, draw the reindeer’s ears as in the image above. Now use a pen or marker to draw the fair part of drawing.
Then draw the oval inside of the reindeer’s ears to complete the ears as in the image above. Also, draw the crown in the center of the reindeer’s head as in the image above.
As we are drawing the reindeer’s head, draw the rectangular antlers on both sides of the reindeer as in the image above. Make curved lines and join them to make antlers.
Draw More Antlers
As they have many antlers, draw some more small “r” shaped antlers as in the image above. Some antlers are “r” shaped and some are just half rectangular shaped as in the image above.
Draw More Antlers
As they have large antlers, draw some more small “r” shaped antlers as in the image above. The beautiful thing about reindeer is their large antlers. Reindeer are the only mammals that grow new sets of antlers annually.
Erase Rough Part
Now erase the rough part of the reindeer and you can see the clear face of the reindeer. Now in the next step, we will complete the reindeer’s face. We drew that rough lines just for the reference.
Draw Reindeer’s Eyes
We just finished drawing a reindeer’s face outlines and antlers. Now draw the oval dark black eyes inside the reindeer’s face as in the image above. Also, don’t forget to draw the eyebrows of the reindeer as in the image above.
Draw Reindeer’s Nose and Mouth
Now draw the horizontal oval inside of the reindeer’s face to make the nose of the reindeer as in the image above. And also draw curve lines and join them with another curve line to make a smiley reindeer’s mouth as in the image above. Finally, we finished drawing the cute cartoon reindeer.
Coloring a Reindeer
After the drawing of a reindeer is completed we move forward with coloring the reindeer. For coloring, we had chosen some basic colors.
Reindeer are mostly brown in color so we fill brown color in reindeer. We use white and black colors for the shading and finishing of the drawing as always. You can fill the color according to our wish too.
- Dark Brown
- Light Brown
- Dark Red
