Draw Meerkat 1

Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the meerkat's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the bottom for the rest of the body.

Step 2: Draw two curved, intersecting lines inside the head to help you place the meerkat's facial features later on.

Step 3: Draw a small circle on the lower half of the head as a guide for the meerkat's muzzle.


Draw Meerkat 4

Step 4: Draw two more circles under the head as a guide for the first part of the meerkat's body. The first circle should be a bit bigger than the head, and their edges should almost touch. The bottom circle should be the biggest circle. The end result should be similar to a snowman.

Step 5: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the rest of the meerkat's body. Draw an arc similar to the letter U under the bottom circle for the lower half of the body.
