How to Draw a squirrel

No words are needed to show you how to draw this cute and corky squirrel. This video shows you how to draw a simple squirrel from the pattern of the outline and continues to add more detail like adding for realistic looking fur.

Step
1

Draw a large circle for the body and attach a smaller circle for the head. Squirrels come in all shapes and sizes, so do not fret about the size or relative proportions of your shapes. Draw a small circle for the nose and an ellipsis for the back legs.
Step
2

Add a triangle for an ear and a tiny circle for the squirrel's eye. The front leg is a half-banana shape and the back leg a half sausage. Add a small ellipsis for the front paws and mark where the fingers will be.
Step
3

Mark the nostril with a semicircle and rough draw in the tail using directional strokes as shown. Tails on squirrels can be long or short, thick or thin.
Step
4

Add some hair to the ear and slope the shoulders. Smooth over the back (between the circle and ellipsis) so that your squirrel does not have a dip in his spine.
Step
5

Smooth over the nose (between the head and nose circles). Shade the eye in black, leaving a sliver of white and make a bottom jaw. Add a second back thigh behind the first. Erase unnecessary lines.
Step
6

Add hair to the tail by scribbling in short strokes. Add hair to the neck. Add claws and make the fingers angled. Add a few whiskers and an ear center.
