Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin by using a black pen to draw an oval shape in the left-hand half of your page.
Add a bumpy line to the top of the shape.
Add two black dots below this for the eyes, and then a curve to the bottom of the face for the smile. Add a small mark to the right end of this.
Add two pointed shapes to the top of the head, one on either side and add two smaller triangles inside these for ears. Then, add a curved horn inside each of the ears.
Take a curved line across to the right, and then curve it down. Add a curve to the bottom, and then another just above this, leaving a slight gap before the two join.
Add two parallel lines in the gap, and join these at the bottom with a short line to form the leg. Add a pointed hoof to the bottom.
Now, add a curved line in front of this, with two bumps to form the udder.
Add another leg in front of the udder…
And then add two more lines to the front.
Next, add two curved, parallel lines to the back for a tail, and add a tuft to the end.
Add a curved line just above the hooves, curving it down at either end. Connect the two sides with a wavy line at the bottom.
Then, add a series of small flower shapes to the bottom of this section, with a small dot in the center of each.
Add a series of small circles and ovals to the right of this.
Next, add small tufts of grass all across the top of the ground…
And add curved fronds and strands emerging from the circles at the front.
Next, add tufts of grass emerging from the mouth of the cow.
Use a pink pen to draw a curved line across the center of the face.
Add two small black dots below this for the nostrils…
Shade the bottom of the face with the pink pen, and use the same color for the udder and the inside of the ears.
Now, use a brown pen for the forelock at the front, and add patches to the sides of the face.
Use the same brown for the patches on the back of the cow’s body…
And fill these in with the brown pen. Use the same shade to color the tuft of the tail.
Shade the hooves with the brown pen, and then grab a green pen, and add a shadow to the bottom of the feet and body. Use the same shades for the tufts of grass at the front.
Use a brown pen for the rocks at the bottom of the tuft of grass.
Shade the surrounding rocks with a yellow pen.
Grab a lighter green pen, and add shading to the sections of grass.
Grab another shade of green pen, and fill the remainder of the grass. Use a brown pen for the center of the flowers.
Use a yellow pen for the ears, the inner legs, and the bottom of the cow’s belly.
Finally, use a light green pen for the horns.
And there we have it – an adorable cow, enjoying his delicious, crunchy grass. Is there a more adorable and soothing sight?
