Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Squirrel" 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 as a guide for the squirrel's body. The oval doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a shape similar to an egg on top of the guide for the squirrel's head. Draw a curved line inside the egg to help you place the facial features later.
Step 3: Draw two arcs on top of the squirrel's head as guides for the ears.
Step 4: Draw a curved line that extends toward the bottom of the oval as a guide for the tail.
Step 5: Draw a series of angled lines as guides for the squirrel's hands and feet.
