Let’s Draw Sherry the Sheep

Let’s make today a drawing day! We’ve had lots of fun drawing together in earlier posts on this blog. We drew penguins…https://thekidsniche.com/2020/02/17/lets-draw-penguins/ We drew Bessie the Cow…https://thekidsniche.com/2020/03/26/lets-draw-a-cow/ And we drew Bart the Bull…https://thekidsniche.com/2020/04/08/lets-draw-bart-the-bull/ If you missed any of those, be sure to go back and add them to your drawing collection. 🙂 Today we are going to tackle Sherry the Sheep.

All you need to get started is a pencil or other drawing utensil and a piece of paper. First thing we’ll draw looks like a cloud tipped a little at an angle. This is the top of Sherry’s wooly head.

Next let’s draw the front of her head and nose like we’re drawing most of an oval.

Add an ear on each side of her head.

Now let’s draw 2 ovals that will be her eyes and two tiny ovals that will be her nose.

Color in about half of each eye and all of each nose hole.

Looking good! Now she needs a curved line for her mouth.

Then draw more of a cloud edge between her ear and under her chin for a wooly neck.

Great job! You can stop here if you like or we can do a couple more things. Since Sherry is often used as a girl’s name, you might like to add some tiny eyelashes to each eye. If your sheep is a boy you don’t need to add eyelashes. And you might want to make his name something different…like Sammy Sheep or something else. Here’s Sherry with eyelashes added.

You can also add 2 little hair bows, one by the top of each ear to make her look more like a girl.

I drew a second sheep because they are so fun to draw and for this one I made the ears black.

You can add any details you like to your sheep. I hope you have had fun learning to draw a sheep today! I’d love to see the pictures you draw! Will you draw one or maybe a whole flock of sheep? Have fun! Thanks for visiting! 🙂

Let’s Draw Bart the Bull

It’s time to get your paper and drawing utensils out again! Today let’s create Bart the Bull. A bull is a male or boy cow. About 2 weeks ago we drew Bessie the cow. If you missed that post, you can go back to it here and have fun drawing Bessie. https://thekidsniche.com/2020/03/26/lets-draw-a-cow/

Here’s Bessie:

Ok, back to drawing Bart! We’ll start the same way we did when we drew Bessie, with an oval shape laying on its side.

Next we’ll draw part of a rounded rectangle for his head on top of the oval. Like this:

My rounded rectangle didn’t come out even, but that’s ok, it will still look fine when we are finished drawing. So if yours isn’t perfect either, don’t worry about it! It will still be great! 🙂 Now let’s add 2 small ovals for Bart’s eyes and 2 ovals for his nose. Here’s where to place them:

The next step is to color only half of the eyes in. Bart will be looking to the right or to the left or up or down depending on which half you color in. Also color in the 2 ovals inside the larger oval for his nose holes. Then draw 2 eyebrows above his eyes and a curve for his mouth smiling. I drew his mouth on the side and his eyebrows coming close together to make him look ornery. 😉

Now draw his 2 ears.

And now he needs you to give him 2 horns.

It’s up to you to decide if Bart is a black and white cow like Bessie or some other color. Here’s one way he might look if he is a black and white cow.

This is Bart if you’d like to make him a brown cow.

And there you have it! All done and a great job you did! Now you can draw as many cows as you like. I hope you had fun drawing with me today!

Let’s Draw a Cow

Let’s have some fun today learning to draw a cow. Well, a cow’s head, to be more exact. She’s a pretty happy and friendly cow and I hope you will like her. I think she needs a name, so let’s call her Bessie.

Grab a pencil or a marker and a piece of paper. Let’s go! First draw an oval laying on it’s side.

Next, add part of a rounded rectangle on top of the oval.

Now add 2 circles in the partial rectangle down close to the oval for Bessie’s eyes. Draw 2 more circles inside the oval that will be her nose holes.

Great job! Now color the nose holes in solid with your writing utensil. Draw a curved line inside her eye holes and color in the bottom part.

Give Bessie 3 eyelashes on each eye. She needs a mouth too, so draw a curved line to give her a smile.

Bessie needs to be able to hear when the farmer calls her into the barn for supper, so let’s give her 2 ears.

Two horns on the top of her head come next.

Now you can color Bessie whatever color you’d like her to be. I decided my cow would be white with some black patches and also black ears.

And Bessie is all done! I hope you had fun leaning to draw your new friend! Thanks for visiting!

Let’s Draw Penguins!

Think you aren’t the world’s greatest artist? Yea, me too, but you can draw this penguin! We’ll take it step by step and you will be impressed with your artistic abilities when you’re done! Grab a piece of white paper, a pencil if you are a little uneasy, a black marker if you’ve “got this” and an orange or yellow marker or pen. If you are feeling rather unsure, draw with the pencil first and then trace over it with the marker. First draw an oval on its side.

Next draw this shape inside the oval. It’s almost a heart but not pointed on the bottom like a heart.

Now let’s add 2 eyes and 2 little triangles for the penguin’s beak.

Color in the black part of the head and the orange or yellow beak.

Our penguin needs a body so let’s add an oval now for that. Add a second oval inside the first oval.

Next, color in the black part of the body.

How about giving your penguin 2 wings so he’ll be able to swim? And 2 feet are important for walking!

Color his wings in black and his feet in orange or yellow. And tah dah!! You’ve drawn your first adorable penguin! Great job! 🙂

If you enjoyed drawing one penguin, go ahead and draw a colony of them! 🙂
