To draw this cartoon Kangaroo 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: Lightly sketch two small ovals for the cartoon kangaroo's eyes. Don't place the eyes too close together. When you get the position and shapes right, darken the lines. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles for highlights. Shade the eyes but don't overlap the tiny highlight circles. The eye on the left should be slightly smaller because of the way the head will be turned.
Step 2: Below the eye on the left, draw a small oval on its side for the nose. Inside the nose, near the top, draw a thinner oval for a highlight. Shade the kangaroo's nose but don't overlap the thin highlight oval.
Step 3: To the left of the nose, lightly sketch a curved line for the muzzle and cheek. The line starts near the kangaroo's eye and curves under the nose. Darken the line when you get the shape right. Lightly sketch a line that curves up and to the right, high above the eyes, for the head. Pay attention to how high above the eyes the line is. Darken it when you get the shape right. At the top of the head, draw three short, spike-like shapes for some fur.
Step 4: To the right of the fur, draw a thin, tall arc that's a bit pointy at the top for the first ear. Inside the cute cartoon kangaroo's ear, draw a long line and a couple of spike-like shapes for the structure and fur.
Step 5: To the left, draw a slim arc that's slightly tilted for the other ear. Add a line inside for structure. To the left of the eyes, draw a long line that curves to the left at the bottom for the other side of the kangaroo's head.
