Step 1

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Draw two ovals for the head and body of the possum. Draw a line, which will act as the center of its head. Add a line for the tree.

Step 2

Draw shapes for the animal’s body and neck. Add a smooth guideline for its tail.

Step 3

Show with guidelines the places for the legs, eyes and snout of the possum.

Step 4

Sketch the legs, feet, snout and ears of the animal.

Step 5

Draw the eyes, tail,ear, nose and toes of the possum.

Step 6

Add claws. Work on the whole figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 7

Contour the possum, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and the tree. Erase all guidelines.
