A cute unicorn plush
I wanted to show you the brightest stuffed animal: the unicorn plush in sequins. These soft toys are covered with reversible sequins. So when you pass your hand over the unicorn, it changes color.
How to learn and draw a plush unicorn
This drawing is quite easy to achieve. Just follow our advice.
- Train with a pencil
- Repeat several times the same drawing
- Share this moment with your child : each a sheet and a pencil!
- Prefer images to the video. Indeed, these detail each line to achieve. The video is nice but requires a click to pause. Simply scroll through the article according to your progress in the drawing.
What equipment for this unicorn drawing?
Let's keep it simple for this drawing.
- A white A4 sheet (cardboard sheet if you want to keep the drawing)
- A pencil.
- A black marker (option). If the outlines of the unicorn are okay with you, use your felt tip pen to mark the design. Then proceed to coloring.
- A pencil sharpener.
- Colored pencils or markers.
Stuffed Unicorn Drawing Tutorial
You have 2 options: images or video. You already know my preference for pictures.
Your sheet is arranged in "portrait" mode.
Draw the muzzle of the unicorn
Start with an oval shape that draws the nostrils and the mouth of the unicorn. Draw this one in the middle of the sheet. 2 black dots for the nostrils and a line for the smile.
Draw the eyes of the unicorn soft toy
Make 2 slightly flattened circles. They touch the muzzle of the unicorn. Then add 2 circles of different sizes inside the eyes. Then a line at the bottom of the eyes. Now you can color the fundus of the eyes black.
Draw the head of the soft toy and the horn of the unicorn
The head of the plush is round in shape and slightly flattened at the bottom. Before closing the circle on the top, draw the horn. This is an upturned cone.
The ears of the plush
The ears are formed with 2 rounded triangles. Add an extra stroke inside to create relief.
Unicorn plush hair strand
Draw a wave passing behind the horn to make its mane stand out. Then add curves inside that follow that wave shape.
Detail of eyelashes and eyebrows
Follow the drawing below with small strokes to bring the unicorn to life.
Draw the body and front legs
We start the line starting from the face of the animal. We descend the same length as the head. For the lower legs, you can use a line or an effect with small waves.
For the inside of the legs, try to be symmetrical based on the muzzle. The legs can be glued or slightly apart as in the drawing.
For the drawing of the hooves, start with a line on the left then on the right. Then join the two ends.
Drawing of the hind legs
Start with a curve that starts from the middle of the front leg. Then a flattened circle for the hoof. Add a line to simulate the underside of the hoof.
You can, for example, add a small heart or a star.
Unicorn tail drawing
Add the shape of the tail then the detail of the hairs by lines inside.
