Hi, I'm Lynn Stone. I'm a professional illustrator and today I am going to show you how to draw a really great image. So, we are going to start with the rabbit.
So, we need an oval shape, about so big. It is not a perfect oval, it is slightly flatter toward the top and then we are going to over lap that with a much bigger, slightly too big, I would say, oval shape about here. And then we have a shape here, like so, and another shape here, like so, and a shape at the back like this.
Okay, next we need to do the ears. Think stretched egg. A kind of very strange looking egg.
And then the same for the other side only a bit more narrow. The nose is about here, so, draw across and then down, like so. You want the eye quite large, because it is a baby.
About that big, a little corner there, and a little corner there. What I do with all eyes, actually, I will draw a section like this that I am going to keep white, and then I shade in around. That gives a little touch of light to the eye.
Then, we have dots here, for the whiskers. We can start adding whiskers, and then add a shape almost like and eyebrow. At this stage you can get rid of some of the guide lines, so you can see more clearly.
The inside of the ear is joined at the bottom and then it fans out and comes to the top, fans out and comes to the top. Then add a slight hairiness to it. Now we look at the front.
We placed a guide for the foot and we now want to draw the foot over the top and then add claws. Make the edge fluffy, and then take the original guide line out. Keep the original guide behind the head.
And that is roughly how to draw a baby bunny rabbit. How to draw a duckling. We need some guide lines.
We will need a circle, laying slightly over that, we have an oval, a fat oval. A shape that will become the beak. Then the feet, a little bit more complicated for the feet, a shape like this and then that shape but reversed.
Add an oval shape for the eye, add more detail to that later. Then the little duckling wing. So, we have a shape like this, which overlaps the original one toward the end.
Join up these shapes. Draw the parts of the feet, so that you can get them into position. At the end there is a rounded part and then the claw.
To add personality, fill in the eye. Give him a nice fluffy down. Go all the way around the original guide on the outside.
Now get rid of some of the guide lines and then add some shadow underneath as well. And, that is how to draw a baby duckling.
