Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Ferret" 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 two circles as guides for the ferret's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circle on the right side should be a little bit bigger. Ferrets' bodies are long, so don't place the circles too close to each other or your ferret will be too short.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the upper right side as a guide for the ferret's head. This circle should be a bit smaller than the first circle, and their edges should graze each other.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the ferret's head to help you place the facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a small circle on the lower half of the head as a guide for the ferret's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw four angled lines under the body (two below each circle) as guides for the ferret's legs. The line in the back angles forward more. Ferrets have short legs, so don't draw the lines too long.
