1,300+ Animal Clip Art in Vector Graphics Format

Animal clip art graphics are also popular in both web and print design. Here, I have listed more than a thousand free resources that you can use for free just in case you need some animal clip art  in your designs, both personal and commercial. All of these animal clip art are silhouettes and in vector formats (either Illustrator, EPS or SVG). Of course, we always prefer vector format because it gives us the flexibility in terms of resolution and it also allows us to further edit these artworks to suit our individual needs.

Also, I tried my best to make this list a very exhaustive one by including various types and classifications of animals, from zoo to farm animals, wild animals, to water animals and even insects.

The last seven entries are actually dingbats (fonts), which are also convertible to vector images. To use these dingbats as vector image, just convert these fonts to outlines and presto! you have a vector image that you can use even for large-format printed materials. There is a detailed discussion on how to convert these dingbats to vectors at the end of this post.

II. VECTOR ANIMAL CLIP ART AS DINGBAT FONTS

To use these dingbats as vector image, Install first the font file in your computer.  Your starting point is to select the dingbat font in your drawing program (or any program that will take a symbol and convert it to curves or render it from text) and type the chosen character. In vector programs, you must convert the font to curves or outlines.

In Illustrator, for example, type a character, select it and convert to outlines. In Photoshop, you must convert the text in order to use filters. Type your character and render the layer. But, remember to set approximate desired size and color first before rendering the text layer. All of these dingbat fonts are available in both PC and Mac OS platforms.
