Since animals represent one of the most common decorative motif, in this category you will find a large number of animal designs.

There are designs and illustrations of various types of animals that can be used for different varieties of graphic and craft techniques. However, the designs of imaginary animals, dragons and mythical creatures are not included in this category.

All the animal designs in this category are editable vector illustrations or 2D CAD geometry, so you can scale, modify and color them to meet your design requirements. For those who are dealing with vector graphics, svg and eps file formats have been made available, and for those working with 2D or 3D CAD software, the illustrations are downloadable in dwg format.

All the animal designs that you can download here are under Creative Commons licenses.  Note: Before downloading a pattern, check if the license permits either non-commercial (for personal use only) or commercial use of the model.

We'd love to see what you create using our Animal designs and have your work featured in our Showroom gallery.
