Sketchnotes How to draw Easterbunnies

Lots of possibilities

To draw bunnies you just need a basic shape for the body. That can be an organic shape or a square or two ovals together. What you need to make it a rabbit is: ears, a triangle nose and eyes. If you want you can add a tail or teeth but that is not necessary.

From here you have tons of variations to chose from: Different ears look like (big, small, pointy, round …), where are they placed on the head, how does the eyes look like, how to feet and arms look like etc.
