How To Draw a Zebra

The intricate black and white stripes of a zebra can naturally make it look very difficult to draw one. But in truth, it is not an impossible task as its body structure is quite similar to that of a horse. Follow the below mentioned instructions to easily draw a zebra yourself.

Step 1

  • Start your drawing by making a large bean shape (picture 1). Make it as big as you want your zebra to be as it will later be the body.
  • Draw two small, somewhat curvy, almost parallel lines from the right side of the bean (for the neck), followed by a somewhat oval shape (for the head). Keep the wider side of the head attached to the neck (picture 1).
  • See picture 2 to draw the mane as well as the only visible eye and ear. Draw a sideways ā€œVā€ with somewhat curvy sides for the outline of an open mouth.

  • Next, draw the tail as shown in the picture.
