Hello and welcome to another fun drawing post here at The Kids Niche! Today let’s try drawing Bubbles and Juan the Hippos. Doesn’t he/she look friendly and excited to meet you? 🙂 You will draw the hippos the same until the end when you can decide if you want to draw Juan (a boy) or Bubbles (a girl)…or both! 🙂 My grandsons named these hippos for me! 🙂 Thanks, Hunter and Kendan!
Grab a piece of paper and a drawing utensil and let’s go! Starting with the top of her head, draw part of a sideways oval.
Next draw the area that will be Bubbles’ nose. Almost like another sideways oval but one side dips in.
Next is the area for her mouth.
She’s looking a little odd so far, isn’t she? So let’s start adding some things that will make her look like a hippo! We’ll add 2 small ears on the top of her head…and a little line inside each ear.
Next, draw 2 eyes and 2 little marks, 1 mark above each eye.
Now let’s draw in the details of her nose. Add 2 ovals and color them in for her nostrils. Add 3 dots close to each nostril.
Bubbles is looking much better, but we need to draw her mouth yet. Draw a second curving line close to the first one at the bottom. Add 4 teeth…or however many you want Bubbles to have. And lastly, add a line down the middle to divide her nose a bit.
Great job! Now you can draw a hippo! The finishing touches to make Bubbles, is to add eyelashes to her eyes and a bow on her head.
To make Juan the Hippo, you can add a hat to the top of his head. This hat even has a feather added.
Thanks for joining me today to have fun drawing hippos! 🙂
