It is super easy to draw a hippo. Their large size makes it easy for us to work out their structure. But even then, they might seem difficult to draw, especially if it is your first time drawing a hippo. I too have struggled with my hippo drawings at first, but eventually managed to get better at them. I even have my own approach to drawing hippos now, something you might fancy if you are a beginner.
Start with the large head and mouth, then the body. Do the facial expressions, and work out the other features. Finally, color it, and you are done.
Give it a large and circular shape.
It is slightly open.
You do not have to draw too many of them.
They are big and oval in shape.
It should be big, somewhat of an egg shape.
The legs are rather short, but thick nonetheless.
Use a light pencil for this.
Just a little bit left, so hang in there.
Get a dark pencil for this.
Let us color our cute little hippo.
