How to Draw a Cartoon Kangaroo - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Today we are drawing a kangaroo! Begin by creating a circular figure that is slightly pointed off to the right.
Step 2: At the top of the figure you just drew, add in two cones. One should be off to the left and the other is off to the right. Add a smaller cone in the middle of both original cones. These are the ears!
Step 3: Now, where you have the slight point at the right of the head, add a small dome to the bottom for the mouth.
Step 4: In the middle of the head, add two small dots next to one another.
Step 5: Above the mouth at the right-end of the face, add a circle for the nose!
Step 6: Now, off the base of the mouth, add in a vertical line that curves slightly at the end. Off to the left of this line, add another curved line that starts vertically, levels out horizontally and curves downward at the end.
Step 7: Next, time to add in the arms. Off to the left of the right-most vertical line, add two parallel vertical lines that curve and connect at the end. Now move to the right of the original vertical line and draw in two more parallel lines that also connect at the end.
Step 8: Let's add the legs. First, make a dome shape in the middle of the kangaroo's body and funnel it downward with two vertical lines very close together. At the base, continue these parallel lines in the horizontal direction and connect them at the end. For the other leg, just above the horizontal lines you just drew, add in another set of parallel lines that start vertical and change into horizontal, also connecting these at the end.
Step 9: Off to the left of the dome shape, add two parallel curved lines that go off to the left, connecting both with a point at the end.
