Squirrel drawing

Hello! Today we’ll show you how to draw a squirrel. This drawing lesson is very simple, but despite this, it looks quite realistic. The most important thing here – do not mix up proportions in the first two steps. So let’s start the lesson and learn how to draw a squirrel!


Step 1

Begin with the head, body and tail of the squirrel – in this step we need to sketch out these parts of body, using very light lines. Notice that the drawing at this stage  is very similar to a snowman. Also sketch out the contours of the hip.
