How to Draw a Deer Head - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Let's start our deer head by making a backwards 3, with the bottom line a little more curved than the top.

Step 2: Next, draw a line just below that which curves around. This is the lower jaw.

Step 3: Now we'll add the ears. They are leaf shaped. Draw one just above and on either side of your deer's head.

Step 4: You can draw the antlers now, in any pattern you like. They look like branches of a tree.

Step 5: Draw a line down just below the ear and another near the snout to make the neck.

Step 6: Last, add facial details. Draw an oval for the nose, add another set of lines inside the ears, and draw an eye. If you'd like to color your picture, most deer are tan to brown.
