Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Hamster" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw an oval on its side as a guide for the hamster's body. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: To the right of the oval, draw a shape similar to an egg as a guide for the hamster's head. The egg shape should be right next to the oval and overlap it a little.
Step 3: Inside the hamster's head, draw two intersecting lines. These will be guides to help you place the hamster's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw the ears as arched lines on top of the hamster's head. Use the guides to help you with the placement.
Step 5: Draw two angled lines under the hamster's body as guides for the feet.
