How to draw a cow?

The tutorial we have here is simple but produces a much more refined cow as compared to your kiddie kindergarten version. The various features and details in this step-by-step tutorial will give your cute cow a whole other dimension.

Here is your step-by-step guide to draw a cow. We have also provided reference illustrations to help you understand better.

Before you begin, we would suggest drawing a grid and divide it into four. Remember to make it big enough because your cow drawing will come into this.

Step 1: Start by drawing the head and body shapes of your cow.

Step 2: Next, draw the nose as well as the mouth of the cow.

Step 3: Draw the eyes of the cow. Also add a large spot around one of the eyes (this will be one of the patches on your cow).

Step 4: Now draw two large (but not very large) ears.

Step 5: We hope you didn’t forget the horns of your cow! Draw them as well as a splash of hair.

Step 6: Draw the front and back legs of the cow.

Step 7: Then draw the other two legs that will be behind them. Also draw the udder and the tail of your cow.

Step 8: Now add some spots to make your cow look more like a cow! Also, erase your grid and extra lines. Draw the background too.

Step 9: Trace the cow with your black marker. And use your crayons to fill color and bring life to your drawing!

And there you have it! A super easy-to-draw cow in no time!

We hope your child enjoys drawing this step-by-step cow. Let your kid put up this new farm animal drawing in his room where everyone can adore it!
