Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Start with a gray pen, and draw a curved, diagonal line in the left of your page.
Now, use a pink pen to add a curved shape to the end of the gray line, and add three lines to the bottom of this.
Add a small half circle to the right of this, on top of the gray line, and fill this in with the pink pen.
Add a small oval shape to the end of the gray line.
Use a light gray pen to connect this to the pink lines above, forming the nose, face, and ears. Then, use a darker gray pen to bring a curved line across from the ears, taking it down, across, and up, then down toward the bottom of the page and across to the left.
Add a curved line to the end of this, and another beside that, curving in at the bottom, joining these at the end with a straight line.
Continue the left line up and across to meet the nose.
Use the gray pen to shade the main body of the rat…
And then use a black pen to add a curved line in front of the leg, and another leg in front of this, before curving this up towards the bottom of the chin.
Shade this section with a black pen…
Add a curve to the back of the body, and fill this in with the black pen.
Add a ring of color to the eye, leaving a small dot in the center.
Use the pink pen to add a paw to the end of the front leg…
And then add a foot to the leg behind, with another leg just in front of this.
Add another paw to the back…
And then bring a long, curly tail across and down, adding a spiral at the end.
Take this to a point, and then take the line back up and across.
Shade the tail with a pink pen…
And then use a red pen to add details to the feet, a line inside the tail, and a line inside the ear.
Grab a black pen, and use this for long whiskers on the nose.
Now, isn’t that a super cute, adorable rat, just waiting for a name, a home, and an adventure!
