Rudolph the Reindeer Drawing

A drawing of a reindeer, made with the help of an easy step by step tutorial.

Reindeer Drawing Video Tutorial

This how to draw a reindeer tutorial shares an easy way for children of all ages to draw this classic reindeer. His recognizable face and body are there, just like what they have seen on TV for so many years.

If your students are just learning how to draw, have them concentrate of getting all the shapes just where they want them. Older ones though, might have fun adding shadows along the edges of his brown body. Using extra pressure with their crayons will do the trick. Oh, and the same could be done with the trees, so that Rudolph almost has the same dimensional look as he did in his debut so long ago.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a 1964 Christmas stop motion animated television special that first aired Sunday, December 6, 1964. It has since been telecast every year, making it the longest continuously running Christmas TV special.

Why Draw with Guides?

You may have noticed that all of the tutorials on this website have a dashed vertical line and horizontal line running through the center of each step. If students make their own centered lines on their own paper, before drawing, they will have an easy reference to follow. All they need to do is fold their sheet of paper in half both ways, make a crease, and unfold. The best part is, by the time the drawing is done and colored in, the creases will have disappeared!

    Materials for a Reindeer Drawing

    • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
    • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
    • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
    • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
    • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
