Learning to Draw a Donkey Made Easy

Today we will look at how to draw a donkey. Donkeys are gentle and good-natured animals. Contrary to the saying “stubborn as a mule,” these friendly hoofed animals are simply very smart. They don’t just blindly obey commands but sometimes take a little longer to think things through. Drawing donkeys is not straightforward, as with all animals that have four long legs. Fortunately, they have a few very distinctive features: the long ears, the bristly mane, and the light muzzle. If you capture these characteristic features well, the donkey will be easily recognizable.

Step-by-Step to Your Own Artwork

First, take a close look at the instructions. You will see that the first three circles will become the head and the front and back parts of the body. Keep this in mind as you draw because it makes sense to always know exactly what you are currently drawing. This way, you can remember the instructions better and understand how the drawing is constructed. Proceed slowly and carefully while drawing. If you just “scribble” quickly, the shapes and distances won’t be right, and the animal will look strange in the end. Like all quadrupeds, the legs of the donkey are not easy to draw. Pay special attention here to maintain the exact distances between the shapes. By the way, the small circles on the legs are the donkey’s joints, the places where it can move its legs. Advanced artists can try drawing the donkey in a different pose, such as galloping. We recommend first looking at pictures of donkeys in these poses. Professional artists are very good observers. They study pictures of animals or observe real animals before picking up the pencil. Only through observation can you learn how something looks.
