How to Draw a Squirrel Lesson for Young Artist.

How to Draw a Squirrel

This is an easy creature to draw and it turns out well in any medium.

Start with a a large circle for the body which will mostly be the back. Add another large circle for the rear legs and one for the shoulder. A smaller circle will do for the head and a smaller circle for the muzzle. Don't for get to add the triangles for the ears. The tail is a sweeping circle up and back in toward the head and then a second sweeping line from the back up and away from the head it should form a huge letter "S."  Add the arms and a circle for the upper paws and three triangles for the toes. connect the circles to form the basic shape of the squirrel and erase the unneeded lines. The eye is shaped like an human eye but the eyeball is just a black circle without any visible pupal or iris, do put in a shiny spot to show it is glistening. squirrels have knotty knuckles so don't worry about getting the hands and feet right. The tail is made up of sweeping lines up and away from the body. Squirrels are many colors from red to black to brown and even a few are white. Squirrels have white bellies and white inside their arms and legs.

Give him some nuts and berries so he won't get hungry!
