Outline The Head
Outline the shape of the cow’s head by creating a rounded shape.
Draw The Face, Ears And Horns
Let’s start drawing the face by making two shaded circles. To form the snout, draw a bumpy round shape with two dots for the nostrils. Create a line curving upwards to draw the mouth. Now, let’s outline the shape of its cute little horns. Then, draw pointed shapes on each side of its head to form its ears.
Form The Body
First, draw an oval to outline the cow’s body. Next, form the cow udder below the body by drawing a curved shape with three small bumps. Now, add the cow’s tail by making two curved lines with a pointed shape at the tip.
Add The Legs
Draw the shape of the cow’s legs attached to the bottom of its body similar to the illustration. Create horizontal lines near the bottom of each leg to form the hooves.
Draw The Pattern
Let’s draw the cow’s spot pattern by creating blob shapes around its face and body.
