How To Draw A Giraffe

I know you can’t wait to color in your drawing. Make sure you pick the right colors. In case you are planning to leave your drawing black-and-white, there are black spots of different sizes and shapes on a white background.

This is a simple lesson designed for beginners and kids with real easy to follow steps. Feel free to print this page and use as a drawing tutorial.

To begin, draw three circles and connects them together with straight lines as pictured here. This is an excellent basis for further steps in drawing a giraffe.

A giraffe’s head is smaller than that of a Horse’s Head. Draw a small crest on the neck without spending too much time on it. Remember that a giraffe has one distinctive trait and that is these cute little horns that look like antennas of the extraterrestrial being.

The Giraffe is the tallest of all land-living animal species. It is approximately 4.3 metres to 5.2 metres tall, although the tallest male recorded stood almost 6 metres. Its range extends from Chad in Central Africa to South Africa.

They will drink large quantities of water when available, which enables them to live for extended periods in dry, arid areas. The appearance of horns is a reliable method of identifying the sex of giraffes, with the females displaying tufts of hair on the top of the horns, whereas males’ horns tend to be bald on top — an effect of necking in combat.

You can also use paints or colored pencils to bring your drawing of a giraffe to life.

The work in later stages is a piece of cake. After all, you have almost completed the outline of a giraffe’s body. After erasing extra pencil lines, you should see a nearly finished sketch. Now add the tail with a brush to the giraffe and finish drawing the animal’s head.

Next, go over the initial contours with firmer pencil strokes and transition to drawing the torso, legs, neck, and head. This part is easier than it looks! Just keep referring to my drawing as you work on outlining the body of your giraffe with lead pencil. Remember not to press hard on the pencil if it’s a tentative pencil line, so that you can easily correct it as many times as necessary until you get it right. Please note that giraffe typically has long and thin legs and strong and thick neck.

Now let’s outline giraffe’s legs using same circles-and-lines technique. Draw small squares for your giraffe’s hooves.
