How to draw a Kangaroo?
First, we are going to tell you how to draw a kangaroo from the side. Here are steps that you need to follow while drawing the kangaroo. Read on!
First, you need to draw a circle or oval. This is for the body of the kangaroo. After making an oval for the body, then, you should draw a circle. Make sure this circle is right above the body.
You would use this circle for the head of the kangaroo. Now, add a rounded rectangle. This is the snout of the animal. Next, connect the body and the head with curved lines. These lines will make the neck of your kangaroo.
The second step requires you to draw 2 large ovals for the animal’s legs. Once you have done this, you need to add a small oval for the upper part of the arm. After adding this oval, then, you need to draw the forearms. For feet, you must draw a bit longer shapes.
Besides, you need to draw a curved line or shape, which you will label as the tail of the animal. Now, add some small circles for the hands. Next, draw some football shapes to make the ears of the kangaroo.
After making the ears, you need to draw 2 more circles or ovals inside the ear. The purpose of adding additional circles inside the ears is to provide some details. Once done, the next move is about drawing an oval for the nose and the eyes. For hair details, pouch, feet, hands, and mouth, you need to sketch a few curved lines.
Moreover, we recommend you to use a felt-tip pen, which is a nice way to trace over the line. Since you have use pencils to draw the kangaroo, erase the extra lines. Now, you will have the shape that you have highlighted using the felt-tip pen. Your drawing is ready.
