In how to draw a cow step by step you'll follow ten simple steps to learn to draw a beautiful and lovely cow. we won't use an anatomically detailed approach but will start from the main shapes that constitute the caw body and will proceed from there adding detail and using reference images to finish our drawing.

Now we'll try to position the head (a circle on the left) and the posterior part of the animal. Spend time here positioning these two elements at the right distance from the central shape. See how the two red arrows have approximately the same length and are distant the same from the midline?

Before adding the legs and the rest of it it's necessary to focus on the head a little. See how easy is to draw the shape of the head from the circle you have drawn a few steps before? Remember that cows tend to have really straight heads so keep that line pretty straight.
