Draw Platypus



Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Platypus" 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.



Draw Platypus 1

Step 1: Draw an oval as a guide for the platypus' body. The oval doesn't need to be perfect. It's just a guide.

Step 2: Draw a smaller oval on the left side as a guide for the platypus' head. This oval should be a little less than half the size of the body and should be placed right next to it.

Step 5: Draw a series of lines under the body as guides for the feet. For the platypus' front foot, first draw a long diagonal line, then draw two smaller lines on the left and right. The foot in the back is just four small lines.
