How To Draw the Easter Bunny

Why wait until Easter to draw the Easter Bunny when you can follow Quickdraw's step-by-step guide right here?! Illustrate and colour in your very own cartoon Easter Bunny easily with this video tutorial and photos. It's ideal for children aged 5 and above, but also a great way for beginners to practice their sketching techniques with pen and pencil. Grab your art materials and have fun!

Art materials needed:

A plain sketchpad to draw on, a sharp pencil to draw with, an eraser to rub out messy lines, a black marker pen to go over pencil lines, and a bunch of colouring pencils or felt tip pens to add a splash of colour!

  • OK guys, let's hop to it. Making an Easter Bunny picture starts with drawing the face of the bunny. So what's first? Draw a nose and two pockets on the snout, with a huge pair of teeth sticking out below. This weird shape might look like a small tree or three ice cream scoops in a cone.

  • More detail on our Easter Bunny drawing now by making some shape to the cheek area and around beneath the teeth. There's also a line we'll use to join up the snouth with the mouth. Don;t forget to add a pair of eyes, resting on those puffy cheeks.

  • Ok, more sketching on the head area. We need to gift our Easter Bunny two giant floppy ears. They can flop in any direction! Notice how our cartoon bunny illustration has a cool-looking fringe too?

  • How about a humungous Easter egg to hold - oh what joy our bunny will have tucking into that. We'll need to draw an arm holding it in place, maybe even hugging it for dear life!

  • On to the rest of our bunny drawing with some marking on the Easter egg. This can be any pattern you like - we've chosen striped. And then back to the rabbit's body with a line to join its back with a fluffy tail, and a strong pair of legs.

  • This part is simple and relaxed. All we have to do is take a black marker pen and trace over the pencil lines, most of the anyway. There may be a few pencil lines you can ignore, you will know which. Line drawing with a marker pen makes our Easter Bunny artwork look sharper and brighter.

  • Last but not least is possibly the most fun part of drawing the Easter Bunny: shading the artwork in with a fabulous set of colours. Use felt tip pens or coloured pencils if you have them. Let your imagination run wild when colouring the egg - big and bold. But not the bunny - that's a serious grey!
