Did you know that one-way sheep communicate with others and their surrounding is through scent? To communicate with one another, sheep use scent glands located in front of their eyes and between the digits of their hooves that produce smelly secretions used to communicate with one. Also, they can communicate through vocalization, often called bleating. Sheep are a very intelligent animal and have an amazing memory. Wherein they can recognize 50 sheep and remember them for two years.
Today, you will learn to draw your own sheep. Just simply follow the 10 steps and you’ll see the output after this.
- Pencil or Marker
Step 1: Start the head
Let’s begin our tutorial by sketching the sheep’s head. We do this by drawing a slanting oblong shape in the middle of your paper. The oblong shape doesn’t need to be perfect oblong since sheep have a different shape.
Step 2: Add the Mouth
Step 3: Remove Extra Line
Step 4: Add the Horn
Step 5: Add Details to the Horn
Now, let’s add details to the horn of the sheep. We do this by adding a short curved line from the left portion of the circle and then going downward. This will be the preparation for the next step of your tutorial. You can check the picture for you to be guided.
Step 6: Add More Details to the horn and the Hair
Step 7: Add more Hair and Remove Extra Lines
For the hair, add more circles to the forehead of the sheep. Make sure that these circles are connected. You will just do that by adding circles that overlap with the other circles.
Step 8: Add Details, Eye Guide, and Mouth
Let’s add details to the sheep’s horn. We do this, simply by adding a curved line from the V shape of the horn going downward. To emphasize the hair, erase the curved line inside the connected circles that you made but don’t include the border lines of the circles. On the upper portion of the head, draw a small circle for the eye guide. Then, add a short curved line on the bottom part to emphasize the mouth of the sheep.
Step 9: Complete the Horn, the Eyeball, and add Details
To complete the horn, in the middle of the curved line that you’ve drawn in step eight, draw a small letter e then, at the tip of it, connect it to the big curved line.
For the eyeball, draw a shaded circle in the eye guide and add a small curved line on the top of the mouth. After that, erase the lines that are found inside the hair of the sheep.
