How To Draw A Rhino

Today’s tutorial will cover how to draw a rhinoceros. I’ve been asked how hard it would be to draw a rhino, and honestly, for such a big animal, they are deceptively easy to draw.

Let’s get started!

What you’ll need:

To get your rhino started, we will first need to draw two ovals which will be the head and body of your animal.

The oval which will become the head of your rhino should be pointing toward the ground, and should be about 1/3 the size of its body.

Rhinos have very thick legs like an elephant, which are very short for their body size.

Draw the leg closest to the Rhino’s head, by making the shape shown in the image on the left.

Draw the other three legs of your rhino by repeating the previous step. The main difference here, is that the rear legs of your rhinoceros are much longer, and should come up to meet the top of the rhino’s back.

Connect the rhino’s head and body by drawing a contoured line, which also suggests a large shoulder on top of the rhino’s back.

Give your rhino its trademark horns that sit near the front of its head, as well as two small, rabbit-like ears.

A rhinoceros doesn’t have very many facial features. A very small eye, and a slit for the nose completes your rhino’s face.

At this point your rhinoceros is pretty much complete. All that is left to do is draw in the final details like some texture on the horns, and several lines around the joints of your rhino to suggest rough skin.

That’s it! I hope you’ve enjoyed another tutorial. Don’t forget to comment and like us on Facebook. Thanks everyone!
