If there is one thing that all squirrels are nuts about – it is their nuts! In just a few short steps, we will create our own super cute squirrel enjoying his nuts; are you ready to get started?
Step-By-Step Images and Instructions
Grab a brown pen, and draw an angled “M” shape in the center of your page.
Add a point to the right of this, and then bring a curved line down towards the bottom of the page.
Add a curved line in the center of the triangle, and bring the bottom of this across to the right. Add a small “M” shape inside this.
Bring a line across from the original shape to the left, and then add another triangular shape to the end. Add a curved line to the center, and then a longer curved line to the bottom of this.
Add two points for a tuft of fur, and bring a line down towards the bottom right-hand corner of the page. Reflect this on the right, and then add a triangle shape to the center of the page for the nose, filling this in with the brown pen.
Bring curved lines down from the bottom, and then add two marks to the bottom of the mouth.
Add curved, “horseshoe” shapes to the bottom of these lines, and bring the sides down towards the bottom of the page.
Bring curved lines down from the bottom, bring these in, and add a “bump” to the bottom.
Add a zig-zag line just above the bottom of this…
And then add vertical marks to the top of this.
Add small oval shapes to the bottom of the body for feet, and join these at the bottom with a curved line.
Bring a curved line up from the right foot, and then bring a pointed shape to the right of the ear.
Bring a curved line down from the bottom of this, add a point, and then connect this to the line to the left.
Add two marks to the face for the eyes…
And then add a circle to the top of each of these. Fill these in for the eyes, leaving a small dot in the center.
Use a black pen to add bumpy lines to the inside of the left ear.
Use a light brown pen to shade the center of the face, the edges of the body, the top of the tails, and to add small circles to the feet.
Use a dark brown pen for the bottom of the acorn…
And a purple for the rest of the acorn.
Now, use a gray pen for the bottom of the face, body, and tail, as well as the inside of the ears.
Finally, use a yellow-orange pen for the rest of the body.
And there we have it – a cute squirrel, focusing on his nuts – we just hope he remembers where he buried them!
