How to Draw a Cartoon Donkey
This simple cartoon donkey is a lot of fun to make so you can get your pencils out and get started!
Be careful about the proportions and the placement of the circle as well as the circular square because the circle will eventually make the head and the square will be the main body of the donkey.
Step 2 - Joining the body and making one ear
Finish off this step by adding a long, skinny ear on top of the head-something like the shape of a sword.
Step 3 - The Cartoon Donkey's Mane.
Make a line coming from the top of the cartoon donkey's body at the side of the neck going up. Then Make a pointed end at the end of this line and join up with the long ear. After that the mane continues towards the front top of the head.
Then you can make the other ear in lines as shown in the example. Try and make this shape on your own. If you are having trouble - remember to break it down into the most simple shapes and lines, and then draw those.
Step 4 - The basic shape of the cartoon donkey's face becomes clear!
Now you come to the bigger circle -the face circle and from the outer lower part of that circle make a small curve, like shown in the example. What it is for? You will know in the next step :)
Step 5 - The face and the mane are complete
After this add a small oval for the nostril in the small circle of the muzzle, and then add a closed semi circle in the face for the eyes. The face of the donkey is done!
Next you can move to the mane of the donkey and add a few small lines there as shown in the example.
Step 6 - Finishing off your Cartoon Donkey
After that, make four separate lines at the lower part of the belly of the donkey to make the four legs (one will be curved to show the lifted front leg of the donkey).
Please refer to the example for the sizes and placement of these lines. All of these four lines will have a kind of oval/circle at the end to denote the hoof of the donkey! Your adorable goofy donkey is complete.
