Draw the ears (they look like a pair of ellipses on the upper part of the mouse’s head), feet, and long, bent tail. Note, that the line of the tail is practically longer than the mouse’s body.

Step 4

Erase the unnecessary guidelines from the previous steps. Paint the eye and nose in black (like in Rolling Stone’s song). Don’t forget to keep unpainted glares. It’s a little detail, but details like this will make your art more realistic.
