How to Draw a Bull Head Step-by-Step
Look for shapes when drawing a bull's head. (Hemera Technologies/ Images)

Learning to draw step by step is a matter of learning to see shapes. All objects have shapes, but it does not mean it has to be a perfect shape such as a circle or a square. It means that objects are simply a combination of shapes. An example is an ice cream cone, the ice cream would be a circle and the cone would be a triangle. The same can be done with a bull's head.

  1. 1

    Sketch a shape that is similar to a rounded triangle to represent the head. For example, draw a horizontal arched line with curved verticals lines coming down on both sides, similar to a triangle. Then create a horizontal line to connect the two vertical lines. The bottom horizontal line should be about half the size of the top horizontal line.

  2. 2

    Create a horizontal arched line across the bottom of the shape to represent the nose area. Shade in two ovals on each side for the nostrils.

  3. 3

    Create almond shapes for the eyes. Place the shapes close to the edge and shade in part of it for the pupil.

  4. 4

    Create an arched line between the two eyes that connects to the top horizontal line to represent hair. Add some short strokes for the hair.

  5. 5

    Create crescent shapes for the horns with one on each side of the head. Have the shapes curve toward each other.

  6. 6

    Adjust the lines as necessary, and then reinforce the remaining lines by going back over them.
