To draw this cartoon Narwhal step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a small, curved line for this chibi narwhal's eye. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. Make the curved line thick. The shape should be similar to a backward letter C.
Step 2: Inside the narwhal's eye, draw a small circle for the iris. Inside the iris, near the edges, draw two tiny circles for highlights. In the middle of the iris, draw a small circle and shade it in for the pupil. Don't overlap the tiny highlights.
Step 3: To the left of the eye, draw a short, vertical line for the front of the narwhal's head. At the bottom, curve the line to the right, near the eye, for the mouth. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. Darken the line. At the end of the mouth on the right, draw a small line for a smile line.
Step 4: At the top of the head, draw a small triangular shape for this sea creature's horn (tusk). You can make the horn as long as you'd like. Make the base and tip rounder so that the shape is more like a cone. Real narwhals actually have the tusk closer to the mouth. Draw a few curved lines inside the shape.
Step 5: Above the horn, draw a long, curved line for the top of the head. Sketch lightly at first. The top of the narwhal's head should be round like a dome. Darken the line when you get the shape right. Under the mouth, draw a long line that slopes down and to the right for the bottom of the head.
