Time Needed: 30 minutes
Outline The Head
Start by making an outline of the reindeer’s head.
Form The Face
Now, draw an oval for its eye. Next, add a rounded triangle on its snout to draw the nose. Then, form the mouth by drawing curved lines attached to the bottom of the nose.
Attach The Ears
Draw the pointed outline of the reindeer’s ears. Next, draw a curved line to form the inner ear.
Draw The Antlers
Next, form its long branch-like antlers attached to the top of its head.
Outline The Body
Now, outline its elongated body connected to its head. Then, add the triangular shape of its tail.
Attach The Legs
Form the shape of its thin, long legs attached to the bottom of its body. Draw horizontal lines near the ends of its legs to form the hooves.
Draw The Harness
Draw the harness on the reindeer’s snout and body similar to the illustration. Make sure to erase parts of its body that overlap with the harness!
Add A Collar
First, outline the rectangular shape of the collar. Then, draw circles below the collar to form the bells.
Complete The Christmas Reindeer Drawing
Now, let’s add some festive colors to our Christmas reindeer! First, fill in the eyes with a black crayon and add some shimmer using a white crayon. Next, use a red crayon to color the harness and collar. Use a yellow crayon to fill in the bells on the collar. Now, use a dark brown crayon to shade the antlers, nose and hooves. Then, use a cream colored crayon to color the inner ears, snout and underbelly. Finally, use a brown crayon to shade the rest of the reindeer’s head and body.
