Learning how to draw a Ram Head is easy when you start with a step by step tutorial. Here’s some help in drawing those amazing horns that wrap around the ears and face.
Before we learn how to draw a ram head, here are a few fun facts about rams. The male Bighorn sheep is called a ram and can be recognized by his massive horns. The horns curl back over the ears, down, and up past the cheeks. By the time a ram reaches 7 or 8 years of age, he can have a set of horns with a full curl.
The horn size is a symbol of the animal’s rank. The males can have horns that weigh as much as 30 pounds, which they use in their head-to-head combat with other males.
This tutorial focuses on the ram’s head, so students can concentrate on those amazing horns. Most animals don’t have ones that curve so much, so it takes a bit more planning to make sure they (a) look like they curve around more than once, and (b) match each other as best they can.
Save this project for students that are looking for a little more of a challenge than just a simple ram. The tutorial shows how to draw the face with all its fierce details, and then the horns so they mirror each other.
And if a ram is your school mascot, this is your lucky day!
