How To Draw A Cute Unicorn

Hi Mofukawa Fans! 

Today, let’s try drawing a cute unicorn.

The unicorn style is similar to our other kawaii styles. 

We use simple shapes in really fun ways that make this drawing easy to follow but still super cute.

I love the colors we used for this unicorn drawing. They give off a “sweet” feeling which is perfect for unicorns because they are always sweet, right?

Did You Know?
The word Unicorn is actually latin and has a really cool meaning. ‘Uni’ in Latin means ‘single’ and ‘cornu’ means horn. So Unicorn actually means ‘single-horn’ which fits them perfectly!

We’ve been told that a Unicorn’s favorite foods are: long green grass, sweet apples, and sugar cubes. Must be why they are always so sweet?


Art Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies we recommend to use, however, feel free to use whatever you can find around the house!

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • We want to start the head a little bit to the left of center on the paper.
  • Think of some other colors to use (if you want!). What about a nice candy cane look?

Let’s Draw A Unicorn – Step By Step


Step 1: Start with the head. You can try drawing from the left side down and over a bit. Then draw a line from the right side down to connect to the other line. 


Step 2: Next, start the body and legs. 


Step 3: For the horn, you want to place it a bit above the head lines, leaving a little room there so you can add hair later.

To draw the horn, you can just do simple circles that keep connecting to eachother.


Step 4: To start the hair, you can draw a crescent moon shape down from the horn. Once that is done you can add the extra hair line further out.


Step 5: Keep adding the hair. It doesn’t need to be exactly like ours but you do want to fill it up until the hair connects to the other head line.


Step 6: Draw the little ears.


Step 7: Now start on the unicorn’s mane. Draw a nice, wavy line from around the ear down to the leg area.


Step 8: Draw another hair line on the inside of the mane.


Step 9: Next, we’ll add 2 more lines. One on the top left of the head and another curvy line on the bottom right of the mane for the tail.


Step 10: We’ll add 2 more curvy lines to finish off the tail.


Step 11: Let’s work on the face. Draw the eyes and leave a little white circle in each one. Under the eyes, you can add 2 circles with blush. You can color these any color you’d like.

The mouth is just a simple U shape.

Extra: You can use upside down U shapes for the eyes for an alternate “eyes closed” unicorn look.


Step 12: Finish off the unicorn with color. Remember, you can change these colors to anything you like.
