Hey all, today I’ll be showing you how to draw a unicorn! Unicorns are known the world over as those famous mythical beasts with a magic horn on their head. So if you’d like to know how to draw a unicorn, grab your pencils and let’s go!
To get our unicorn started, we will first need to draw a circle for the head, a large oval for the body, and a line connecting the two which will become the unicorn’s neck.
Next, draw the unicorn’s nose/mouth and draw another line on each side of the connecting line to thicken the unicorn’s neck.
Now we need to erase our overlapping lines. Also, draw the unicorn’s triangular ears, an almond-shaped eye, and a curved line for the unicorn’s nostril.
Next we need to draw the unicorn’s famous horn that sits right between its ears. Also, draw a long, flowing mane running down the unicorn’s neck.
Now we are going to draw the unicorn’s legs. You can think of its legs as three circles that are connected together. The largest part of the leg is connected to the unicorn’s body, while the two smaller circles are the knee and the unicorn’s hoof.
Repeating the same process, we will now use our three circle method to draw the unicorn’s back leg. The difference here is that we will draw the back leg bent slightly at the knee, and the circle that connects the rear leg to the body is a little larger than the front leg.
Repeat the last two steps to draw the unicorn’s opposite front and back legs.
Lastly, just like we did with the mane, we need to draw the unicorn’s long, flowing tail. It should look similar to a horse, but more exaggerated since this is a magical creature after all!
A little color, and our unicorn is all done! I hope you enjoyed learning how to draw a unicorn with me. If you did, be sure to check out the rest of our tutorials. Happy drawing!
