If you have a mouse loose about the house, there is no need to be afraid – they are mainly harmless! In many cases, they can even be cute, and this is particularly true of the babies – read on to learn how to draw your own and find out for yourself.
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Begin your drawing by using a black pen to draw a tall “egg” shape in the right of your page.
Now, add two smaller oval shapes to the top, creating ears for your mouse.
Add smaller shapes inside the ears…
And then add two curves to the top of the original shape for eyes.
Add a small circle between these, and fill this in with the black pen.
Now, add two straight lines emerging from the nose for whiskers, and add a small “w” shape between these.
Add a small square to the bottom of the “w” for a tooth.
Add three diagonal lines to the right of the body, and connect these with slightly curved lines.
Now, add a series of pointed “spikes” to the bottom of this.
Fill in the “spikes” with the black pen…
And then repeat this on the left of the body, creating two arms with claws.
Now, add two more “spiky” sections to the bottom of the body, and fill these in with the black pen to create feet.
Bring two curved lines across on the right, and curve this up, across and to the right, ending in a point to create the tail.
Next, add a small “sack” shape to the left of the mouse, with a curved bottom and sides angling up to make a “bump” at the top.
Add two small ovals to the bottom of this…
And then two curved lines in the top of the shape for eyes.
Add another tiny nose below the eyes…
And then curve two lines down and across on either side for a cheeky grin.
Next, add two angled “u” shapes to the body, and fill in the bottom with the black pen.
Create a tail for this second mouse by bringing two curved lines across to the left, and joining them with a point.
Add two curved ears to the top of the second mouse…
And then two smaller shapes inside this.
Now, grab a gray pencil. Use this to add shading to the right sections of the arms on the main mouse, as well as the bottom and right side of her body, and the tops of the ears.
Use a pink pen to add color to the inside of the ears…
And then grab the gray pencil again to shade the bottom of the baby mouse’s body, his paws, and his ears.
Use the pink pen to add some color to the inside edge of the tail on both creatures…
And then a pink pencil to fill in the rest of both tails.
Now, there we have it – a totally cute mama and baby mouse, ready for a cheesy treat – we told you there was nothing to be afraid of!
