At some point, people decided we wouldn’t be getting enough exposure to ducks, so rubber ducks were invented to accompany us in the bath.
There are many different designs of these rubbery birds, and learning to draw a rubber ducky is a great way to create your design! If you love these bath buddies, this will be a tutorial you want to see through to the end.
How to Draw A Rubber Duck
In this first step of our guide to drawing a rubber duck, we take it literally from above! In this first step, you draw the head of the rubber ducky. The hardest part of this design will be the beak, as ducks have a specific and intricate designs for their beaks.
When drawing the beak, follow the reference image as closely as possible to show the details. You can also simplify the beak a bit if you’re having trouble with that! Next, use curved lines for the duck’s round head and finish with some oval shapes for the eye.
To continue this rubber ducky design, we will add the front of the neck and the chest. Rubber ducks tend to have a very wavy shape, which is evident in our sample image. The line will extend under the beak and run very sinuously downwards.
Now, in this third step of our tutorial on how to draw a rubber duck, we will add the pointed ducktail and the wing outlines. The duck’s tail is relatively large and pointed, extending to the rounded back and base of the rubber ducky.
Near the base, we use several curved lines that connect. They are drawn this way to create the look of the feathered end of the duck wing. That’s all there is to this step. So when you are happy with the look, let’s add this duck in the fourth step.
We added the outline for the wing of this rubber ducky design in the previous step and will add some of the interior details in this step. The inside contour of the wing is drawn with several curved lines, as shown in the reference image.
So for more feather detail, you can add smaller curved lines close to each other. These feather details are mostly found near the top of the wing, but we’ll add more along with some finishing touches in the next step.
All the outlines have been completed, and in this fifth step of our rubber duck drawing guide, we will focus on adding some minor details. We added simple curved lines all over the rubber ducky’s body and head to create texture detail.
Then we added a bunch of smaller rounded lines on the wings to create a feathery texture. These are the final details we chose for this photo, but there are many more you could add! Another thought would be to tauten a location.
You can opt for a typical setting, e.g., B. floating in a bathtub, but there are other fun settings you can do instead! It is your chance to have fun being creative, so what will you do to complete this cute picture?
Traditionally, rubber ducks come in bright shades of yellow with bright orange for the beak. It is what we were looking for in our reference image for this rubber ducky design. We used bright shades of yellow for the duck’s body and head.
Using lighter tones and white highlights, you can create a lighter texture for the duck. While this is the traditional look for a rubber ducky, they can come in any other color you can think of! When you have completed this image, you have a lot of freedom in how you colorize it. Get innovative with your favored shades and art mediums, and notice what happens!
