How to Draw an Ox in 10 Easy Steps

How to Draw an Ox head in easy steps.

Yaks are cattle with long hair covering every inch of their bodies. They can be roughly divided into domesticated (Bos grunniens) and wild (Bos mutus). Yaks are high-altitude relatives of cattle. They spend their life thriving through the harsh chilly of Tibet.  So their body is covered with thick fur undercoat to protect them from frigid winter temperatures where snow is common. Both types are herbivorous in nature so their food consists of plants only. 

Today you will learn how to draw an ox yack in just 9 steps. This step-by-step guide is very simple and will be helpful for you.

Instructions

Step 1: Draw the Head

Circle, the first step in drawing ox.

Let’s get started by sketching the head of the ox yack. Ox Yack has an oblong shape. Let’s draw this in the center of your paper. If you have a hard time doing it then you can find an object to trace a perfect head for the ox yack.

Step 2: Fix the Head

Second step in drawing ox.

Ox yack has a smaller shape on the bottom part of the head. Now, let’s make it smaller by sketching slanting lines on both the lower right and left sides of the head. This slanting line will be a big help for the face of the ox yack.

Step 3: Draw the Horn

Drawing horn as the third step in drawing ox.

The yak’s horn is a little curvy, start sketching a curvy line inside the upper left head of the yak. The horn looks like an inverted letter S. Then, erase the outer line that you’ve drawn on both sides of the lower portion of the face. 

Step 4: Add the Right Horn

This time, we will draw the right horn of the ox. To do this, just simply draw an inverted letter S on the upper right side of the head. Make sure that the two horns are connected on the upper center of the ox’s head. See the reference image above for you to be guided. 

Step 5: Add the Right Horn

Fifth step in drawing ox.

This time, we will draw the right horn of the ox. To do this, just simply draw an inverted letter S on the upper right side of the head. Make sure that the two horns are connected on the upper center of the ox’s head. See the reference image above for you to be guided. 

Step 6: Add Details

Sixth step in drawing ox.

In continuation with the horn, draw another inverted letter S below the first horn that you’ve drawn earlier. Draw this on both horns then make sure that those two horns are connected. Then, add a curved line on the middle part of the face. See the reference image above for you to be guided.

Step 7: Add the Eye Guide and Erase Extra Lines

Drawing details of the ox face.

In this step, you’ll just simply draw the eye guide. We do this, by simply making two small circles in the upper portion of the head, below the horn. Then, erase the lines that are found inside the horns. See the reference image above for you to be guided. 

Step 8: Draw the Ears, Mouth, and the Eyeballs

Drawing the eye detail of the ox face.

Now, let’s add the ox yack’s ear by simply drawing the letter V from the lower right portion of the horn going to the upper right of the ox’s face. Then do the same on the left side. After that, add the eyeballs inside the eye guide. Draw a small inverted letter C on the bottom part of the face. 

Step 9: Add the Nose

Hurray! We are now on the second to the last step of our tutorial. This time, we will draw the nose of our yak. To do this we’ll just simply draw two small on the upper portion of the mouth. Then, add the small letter V inside the ears of the ox yack.
