Hare How to Draw

Step 1: Let’s draw the basic shapes and lines, applying gentle pressure on the pencil. We’ll start with the largest oval and then draw two more ovals for the head and the hind leg. The last oval is almost vertical.

Step 2: Draw two lines on the head to mark the proportions of the face. Add the lines of the ears and the legs. Notice that the line of the foreleg is curved at the top.

Step 3: Now we start drawing the contours, pressing on the pencil normally. Let’s outline the head. The line follows the basic oval, but at the bottom the contour is a bit elongated and curves slightly inward near the nose. Mark the nose and the eye with two dashes.

Step 4: Outline the neck and the body. Mark two folds of skin on the back of the neck with two hooked lines. Detail the breast and the neck with some fur.

Step 5: Draw the forelegs. One of them hides behind the other. Notice that the foreground leg bends at the top a bit. The hare’s forelegs are rather thin.

Step 6: Draw a short fluffy tail and the hind leg. The rounded part overlaps the bottom part of the leg. Draw the rounded part, outlining about half of the basic oval. And don’t forget about the fur! Mark the second hind leg with a zigzag.

Step 7: Now let’s draw the ears. They start very close to each other and then one goes almost vertical and the other slants to the right.

Step 8: Finally, draw the hare’s face: a sleepy oval eye, half-covered with the eyelid, a small triangular nose (right below the curve of the contour) and a round cheek. The other cheek is barely visible for us, we can see only a small part. Erase all the basic shapes and lines before coloring.

Step 9: Color the hare with three shades of gray; the background legs are the darkest, and the cheeks, the edge of the tail and the inside of the ears are the lightest. Trace over the contours again if they got blurred after coloring, and the hare is complete!
