This drawing tutorial will teach you how to draw a Rhinoceros step by step. When I think of Rhinos, I can’t help but think of how weird of an animal that they are. It must be nice to have that huge horn on your nose to use whenever you need it. Unfortunately, it’s that huge horn that gets them killed by human poachers. Hunters kill the Rhinos and sell the horn illegally. Rhinos look menacing, but in reality they are actually herbivores, meaning that they only eat plants. So enough about Rhinos, let’s draw one.
For more on drawing animals, be sure to check out the how to draw animals page.
Begin the drawing of a Rhinoceros by drawing two ovals. The larger oval will become the main portion of the Rhino, while the smaller oval will become the head of the Rhino.
Next, you can draw some of the outlines for the body of the Rhino. Notice that these lines are a bit jagged. Try to make your lines follow the ones in the picture a s closely as possible. Add the bottom right legs of the Rhinoceros here as well. Notice that in our drawing the right hind leg is coming forward a bit.
Now, you should add a few details to the face of the Rhino. These details should include the right eye, the mouth, and a few wrinkles. Also draw the ears and the left legs. Notice the line that will need to be drawn to define the neck of the Rhinoceros. Be sure to add wrinkles that wrap around the contours of the Rhino to make the drawing seem more realistic.
Next you can draw the tail, some more wrinkles, and of course the horn. But take note, there is more than just one horn! In fact, most Rhinos have a few horns. Be sure to draw them right down the middle of the head.
Now you have enough information to finish your drawing of the Rhinoceros. Go over your lines with a darker drawing material, perhaps with ink. Then erase any lines that are left that you no longer need. Add a bit of grass and shadow underneath the Rhinoceros to finish off the drawing.
