How To Draw kangaroo Easy Step By Step

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1

Start by drawing a perfect little circle in the center of the top of your paper. This outlines the kangaroo’s head.

Remember, use light strokes when drawing the outline. Avoid pressing down too hard with the pencil so you can easily erase any parts of the contour later that you may not need anymore.

To ensure that the outline will be drawn in the correct position, you can create reference lines by drawing an intersecting horizontal and vertical line on the paper.

The outline of the kangaroo’s head should align with the vertical line above the horizontal line.

Step 2

Sketch of Kangaroo’s head and body
Draw an uneven oval just below the head. The figure should be narrow at the top and wider and curved at the bottom.

Similar to the head outline, make sure you can easily remove the body border whenever needed.

Step 3

Next, Draw the Snout of the Kangaroo
Draw a sideways U-shaped curve on the left side of the kangaroo’s head. Then draw a curved line at the bottom. This forms the snout of the kangaroo.

Don’t forget to erase any part of the border that overlaps in the muzzle. This makes your drawings more refined and most importantly neat and tidy.

Step 4

Then Draw Kangaroo’s Ears
Draw two upside-down U-shaped curves on each side on top of the kangaroo’s head. Try to make the ears uniform in shape and size.
Then remove the line from the border that overlaps the inside of the right ear.

Make sure the ears are high and upright — that’s one of the distinguishing features of kangaroos!

Step 5

Then draw both legs of the Kangaroo
Did you know that kangaroos can jump up to 10 feet? All thanks to their muscular legs and wide feet, which is also one of the unique characteristics of kangaroos. In this step, that’s exactly what we’re going to draw.

Continue by drawing a curved line on the right side of the kangaroo’s lower body to form the legs.

Then, extend the line to the left until you form a side U-shaped curve to form the foot. Then, bring the rope up, completing the form of the right leg and foot.

Repeat the same steps on the opposite side of the kangaroo’s lower body. This forms the left leg, thus completing both legs of the kangaroo.

Step 6

Now let’s add the Kangaroo’s pointed tail
Draw a narrow curved shape with a pointed end on the bottom back of the kangaroo. This creates the kangaroo’s distinct pointed tail.
Remember to draw the tail at an angle to make the tail appear slightly upward, as shown in the illustration.

Step 7

Draw Kangaroo’s left and right arm
Draw a folded arm with three paws on each side of the kangaroo’s chest. Arms can be created by drawing two parallel perpendicular lines while feet are simply three U-shaped curved lines joined together.

Due to the kangaroo’s inclined stance, its left arm is not fully visible, unlike its right arm.

Step 8

More details and patterns on Kangaroo
In this step we will add details and patterns all over the kangaroo’s body. This helps your drawing look more polished.

Starting from top to bottom, draw a curved line around the edge of the kangaroo’s snout.

Then, draw a line along the length of its body and a horizontal line to outline its pocket. Don’t forget to add more lines on each leg to create a split between each leg!

Step 9

Draw Kangaroo’s facial features

Draw two ovals standing over the kangaroo’s face. This outlines the kangaroo’s eyes.
Since the kangaroo is facing sideways, the left eye is relatively smaller than the right eye. Then add a small circle on each eye. Then, shade the entire eye while leaving the small inner circle uncluttered.

Don’t forget to add a border inside the kangaroo’s ears as well as a line at the bottom of the tail to create a border underneath. This adds an extra detail on the kangaroo, making it look more realistic.

Now that we’ve successfully drawn a kangaroo, it’s time for the most fun part. In this step we will choose color and color the kangaroo.

The coat color of kangaroos ranges from red to brown, and it usually fades to a lighter color on their undersides and upper legs.

You can choose to color the kangaroo with its original color or use a unique set of colors. Either way, we’re sure the colors will turn out gorgeous!
