To draw this cute Quokka step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle near the top of the paper as a guide for the quokka's head. To draw the circle, make four marks to determine height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a coin or a lid. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: Draw a curved, horizontal line across the head as a guide to help you place the quokka's facial features later on. On the top, right side, draw a smaller, curved, vertical line for another construction guide.
Step 3: Below the section where the construction lines meet, draw a small circle as a guide for the quokka's muzzle. Pay attention to the size of this circle in relation to the head. Don't draw it too big.
Step 4: Draw two small arcs on top of the head as guides for the quokka's ears.
Step 5: Under the head, off to the left side, draw a big circle as a guide for the top part of the quokka's body. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too and sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. This circle should be about twice the size of the first circle. The top part of this circle should be behind the head, so don't overlap the lines for the shapes.
