Craft Time 20 mins
Total Time 25 mins


  • 1 Sheet Paper White
  • 1 Marker Black
  • 1 Pack Crayons


  • Draw the zebra's head on the upper part of your drawing paper. The head should resemble an egg. If you are drawing a baby zebra, ensure that you do a smaller oval shape than you would do for a giant zebra.
  • Below the first oval-shaped head, draw another oval that will join together as the zebra's body.
  • Two parallel lines should be drawn between the head and the body. This is where the neck will be positioned. To come up with the zebra's face, draw two ears at the top of its head. To the lower left side of the head, draw a curved line on it; ensure that it is a sharp, simple line. It is always important to consider the size of your zebra before drawing each part.
  • Make two similar circles on the zebra's head. Put a dot in each of the circles to make the zebra's eyes. Under the curved line that you made, put two dots as well to symbolize its snout. This makes you have a full zebra face just below its body; draw a curved ponytail with a tip at the end to come up with the zebra's tail.
  • From the eyes to the zebra's body, draw a curved line and make four rectangular legs from the bottom of the zebra. Just right at the end of each leg, position a rectangle to show the zebra's hooves. Just below the zebra's head, we came to a curved triangle running close to its body to come up with the zebra's mane. It is always important to have the appearance of the zebra's appearance to ensure that it has the required appearance.
  • Draw stripes along the zebra's body. It is advisable to start almost close to its tail to ensure that you have a uniform pattern. The black stripes should reveal the whole idea of the zebra drawing.It is important that you use a sharp drawing material when making the zebra stripes.
  • After you have finished drawing, color the zebra and ensure that you use the right colors for the vital body part. You can use brown for the hooves, gray for the tail, and black to make stripes on the body. It would be best not to worry about the white coloring, since the watercolor paper is already white.
  • You are now done with your cute zebra, which you may decide to have as a zebra print or even attach your piece of art somewhere else.
