How to Draw a Cartoon Giraffe in 5 Steps

3. Draw the Mane and Tail


Use curved lines, J-shapes, and curved V-shapes for the eyelids, irises, pupils, and nostrils. Form the ears with U-shapes. Place a short curved line between the two horns. Attach small U-shapes to form the mane.

­Finish the bottom of the mane with a short curved line. Connect an odd-shaped oval to a long curved V-shape for the tail. Use lines, V-shapes, and L-shapes (all curved) to shape the belly, chest, legs, and hooves.
