How to Draw a Kangaroo Step by Step
1. Draw a circle for the kangaroo body.
First draw two circles. One is for the kangaroo’s chest, another slightly bigger for the back of the torso. Connect them with a line. Add a little dash with a pencil to mark the neck. The kangaroo looks very like a hare. The same long back and short front paws and ears; the only difference is a very long tail.
2. Draw the kangaroo’s paws and the tail.
In this step add paws and a tail. The kangaroo has very short fore paws, so draw them in almost straight lines, while the back paws are bent in two under the right angle. You can draw the tail any shape you like. Add a small circle to the dash on the neck. It will make the kangaroo’s head.
3. A general outline of the torso and paws of kangaroos.
Up to this stage, you have only marked the proportions of the kangaroo with circles and lines. Now make a contour. To do so you only need to outline them in pencil, leaving small space as shown in my drawing.
4. How to draw the kangaroo’s head and ears.
Remove unnecessary lines to make the kangaroo look more realistic. Add eyes, nose and mouth to the head circle. Draw the ears at the top of the head. The drawing is practically finished.
5. Add shadows.
Let’s start with the head and the paws. If you draw a kangaroo on the entire sheet of paper, you will find it easier drawing shadows in pencil, but you will have to add more details to the eyes and other parts of the kangaroo. If the picture is small, you can draw shadows only in one part of it, and darken the eyes, nose and mouth, without going into details. Don’t forget to draw claws on the kangaroo’s paws. It’s a small, but important detail.
6. The final step.
At this step, shadow the picture, and if you wish, draw the surrounding landscape.
