I’ve already done a tutorial on drawing a strawberry frog here.

In this post, I’m going to show you how to draw a strawberry cow 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 strawberry cow – 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 with the head of the strawberry cow.

We’ll draw a small curve like this – this is going to be the top of the head.

Next we are going to draw the Strawberry cow’s horns which are strawberries – so draw 2 strawberries at the sides of its head.

Next, we’ll draw the leaves or the stem of the strawberry – so just draw 2 small curvy lines under the strawberries like this:

Next, we are going to draw the cow’s head – so we are going to draw a nice deep bell-shaped curve – just make it very round.

To complete the head, draw 2 small ears at the sides of the cow’s head.

We’re almost there.

To complete our cow’s face, draw 2 small eyes and 2 little nostrils on the cow’s face.

Easy, isn’t it?

Next, if you want to draw a little curl on its head – you can do that. This makes our strawberry cow look so cute!

And we are done drawing the cow’s head.

Now, we need to draw its body.

So, we’ll start by drawing 1 leg first – I am going to draw a nice U shape to draw one leg.

Next, we’ll draw the second leg next to the first.

And finally we’ll draw the hind leg of the cow along with its bottom – make the curves very smooth and round – kawaii animals have a lot of curves and are very rounded in shape.

draw the behind of the cow

Lastly, you can add a little tail behind the cow like this:

We’re done!

Let’s color our strawberry cow!

I’m going to start by coloring the cow a light cream color and adding a pink snout – because this will make our cow cuter.

Now, color the strawberries a dark pink or red, and remember to color the stems green.

I’m also going to add pink spots all over the strawberry cow’s body and remember to make the spots uneven and non-uniform – this will make it look more realistic.

Next, I’ll add brown hooves to the cow’s legs to complete the strawberry cow drawing.
