How to draw a prairie dog

Step 1

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

Step 2

Draw shapes for the animal’s body and neck. Pay special attention to its forehead.

Step 3

Show, with guidelines, the places for the legs, feet, eyes, nose and lips of the prairie dog.

Step 4

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

Step 5

Draw the eye and toes of the prairie dog.

Step 6

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

Step 7

Contour the prairie dog, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
