Bunnies are a super popular option for pet owners across the nation – and it is easy to see why. Their adorable faces, long thick fur, and inquisitive, curious natures mean that they’re very cute pets. If you are not fortunate enough to have your own bunny yet, read on to learn how to draw your very own!
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Use a gray pencil to draw a large round circular shape right in the center of your page.
Next, draw a tall “reverse teardrop” shape emerging from the top of this circle. Then, add another “reverse teardrop” just inside the first to create the first ear of your bunny.
Add a second, slightly smaller, ear to the left of the first. At the top of this, add another oval shape heading off to the left-hand side of the page.
Now, add a tiny flower shape just below the left-hand ear – this should be a small circle, surrounded by five other smaller circles to represent petals.
Add some detail to the flower by adding a series of small, pointed leaves all around the main body of the plant.
Then, add a series of trailing leaves emerging from the flower and moving up into the ears – this can be a curved line, with a series of small, pointed shapes emerging from either side to represent leaves.
Now, add two small, slightly curved lines, right in the center of the main circle you originally drew – this will be the eyes.
Add a small heart shape in between the eyes – every bunny needs a twitching nose!
Now, add a larger heart shape, just below the face of the bunny.
Let’s add a few details to the heart shape, by adding a small circle just inside the right-hand line, and a taller, thinner circular shape just above this.
Now, add two small circles overlapping the top curves of the heart.
From these circles, add a “half crescent moon” shape, moving backwards away from the circle and ending in a slight point at the top – this will be the hand and arm of your rabbit.
From the back of the arm on the left-hand side, bring a curved line round in a “C” shape, curving towards the bottom left-hand corner of the page, across horizontally, and ending in a slightly pointed shape. At the top of this point add another “reverse C” shape, to create the back leg of your rabbit.
Rabbits are known for their fluffy tails, so add a circle to the back of the leg and fill this in with a bumpy line to create a fluffy cotton wool tail.
Add a few lines on either side of each of the eyes, to create the whiskers for your rabbit.
Take a black liner and outline the drawing, following the pencil lines. Then use an eraser to remove the pencil marks.
Use a pink pen to fill in the inside of the ears and add a small dot just inside the whiskers on both sides.
Switch to a brown pen and use this to carefully outline the left-hand side of the heart.
Use a red pen to add another layer of color to the inside of the heart…
And use a light red pen to fill in the remainder of the heart shape; leave the smaller shapes you made blank for now.
Use a red pen to add color to the flowers at the top of the head…
And use a light green pen to fit in the foliage and detail.
Add pink color to the flower at the top of the bunny’s head.
And use the green pen to add color to the vine and trailing leaves on the left-hand ear.
Use a yellow pen to add color right in the middle of the flower.
And finish with a pale orange pencil all along the inside of the ears and body.
And there we have it; your very own bunny holding an adorable heart! Don’t forget to read on to learn everything you need to know about caring for your bunny, and making sure your pet is safe, contented and happy.
It is difficult to deny, when it comes to the cutest pets around, bunnies have to take the top spot. These sociable creatures prefer to live in groups of friends, and this is good news for bunny owners as it gives you a perfect excuse to have more than one!
Some bunnies can live up to 10 years at a time, so it is a good idea to get your bunny sprayed or neutered as soon as they come to live with you, to prevent unwanted litters.
Bunnies make great pets due to their friendly nature and are pretty easy to care for and look after – you need to make sure that you have somewhere warm and comfortable for them to sleep, with appropriate bedding such as hay, straw or shavings.
It is also important to ensure that the hutch is completely escape-proof – some bunnies take inspiration from Houdini and like to try to escape! Remember, the powerful front paws and claws make them natural diggers, so it is important to be sure that the bottom of your hutch or cage is secured – left unattended, they may dig their way out, create a tunnel, and undergo a bid for freedom!
Overall, A bunny is a wonderful addition to your home, just make sure you have all the facts you need to care for your pet properly before you proceed.
