And I’ve been obsessed with drawing kawaii animals lately.

In this post, I’m going to show you how to draw a kawaii narwhal step by step so that by the end of the tutorial, you’ll get something like this:
I am currently using an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil to create my digital art.
But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or color pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.
How to draw a kawaii narwhal – Step by step for beginners
I always start with very easy shapes so that anybody of any age can draw this.
So, let’s start by drawing a simple circle like this: this is going to be the narwhal – we are going to use it as a template.
Next, we are going to draw almost 2/3rd of the circle. This is going to be the Narwhal’s body.
Next, extend the bottom part of the circle like this to make the narwhal’s tail.
Now, extend the top part of the circle like this but don’t touch the two lines – they are going to be the narwhal’s tail!
So, draw 2 cute tail fins at the tail.
Next, I’ll draw a small horn near the front of the narwhal’s face.
Now, erase the overlapping lines. And draw the indentations of the narwhal’s horn – ain’t that cute?
Next, erase the circle, we don’t need it anymore and draw 2 little fins side by side on the narwhal.
Lastly, draw 2 eyes and a small mouth on our cute narwhal – ain’t that a cutie?
Easy, isn’t it?
We’re done drawing the cute kawaii narwhal.
Now, to color it!
You can color it any color you want.
I’m going to color the narwhal a cute blue color.
Next, use a lighter color to color its tummy.
And lastly, I’ll color the horn and add 2 blush spots to make the narwhal super cute.
We’ve just finished drawing our cute kawaii narwhal!
You’ve learned how to draw a cute kawaii narwhal from scratch.
You can go ahead and add this drawing to your planner or notebook to make it come to life!
