- First step
In the center of the sheet of paper, draw two almond ovals – one larger and one quite small in the center of the larger one. It will be the squirrel’s head and eye.
- Lugs and nose piece
On the left side, draw a slightly triangular nose, and on the top right side, two ears. Make one more circle in the smaller circle.
- The squirrel’s belly
Draw the squirrel’s body with a sweeping motion. Make the belly about twice the size of the squirrel’s head.
- Draw the squirrel’s feet
Make a roll in the middle of the tummy, which will be the front paw. In turn, at the bottom, draw two rear squirrel feet.
- Draw an acorn to the squirrel
What kind of squirrel would it be without its recognizable mark? Therefore, in the front paw, draw an acorn for the squirrel.
- Squirrel tail
Now it’s time for the squirrel to draw her fluffy tail. Also mark a line going from the nose to the very end of the tummy. Because it will be a brighter place.
