How To Draw A Squirrel in 6 Steps (With Pictures)

Let's learn how to draw a squirrel. To understand this step-by-step tutorial, we will draw this animal in six progressive stages.
Stage One. In the first stage we will create the overall body shape.
Stage Two. Let's add a basic tail shape.
Stage Three. First, add the rear leg and allow for its depth to equal the top body thickness. Add the forearm, with its length equal to the tail's thickness.It's important to measure and compare a shape against another so this way you will get the right size for every shape.
Stage Four. The ear, hand and foot should be added.
Stage Five. Draw the eye.
Stage Six. In the sixth stage of how to draw a squirrel drawing guide, we will finally add the lines and shadings. This is done to highlight important details like hair and body form.

Drawin Animals - How To Draw A Rabbit

Let's learn how to draw a rabbit. The drawing will be done in six steps. First step involves drawing a simple body shape. In the second step we will add the head. The head can be used as a measure, so its height we be two times smaller than the body height. We will be adding the ears in the third step, with the ears height beeing a little bit bigger than the head's. Add the hands in the next step by making their length equal to the head's depth. In step 5 let's add the eyes and the body shape. You can add some grass, also, if you like.
In the final step we will do the final sketch. Draw the nose and the mouth. Also, draw shadings to expose the rabbit's fur.
This is only an example out of many on how to draw a rabbit. As a street drawer, I like to keep it fast and simple so I can start a new drawing rightaway.

This is just a sketch, you are not involved in a competition, take it step by step and practice as much as you can. The most important thing is to have fun.

Pencil drawing methods

Nowadays, professional and amateur drawers use various pencil drawing techniques, that you can easily implement in your own drawings. Some pencil marks are more popular than others. After you will master these marks you will be able to implement cool textures and shadings in your own artwork.
Hatching. Hatching means drawing parallel lines. The hatching lines must variate at starting points and end points to prevent certain hard edges from forming. Also, you can alternate the distance between the parallel lines in order to form darker or lighter areas of a certain shade.
Crosshatching.Crosshatching is very similar to hatching but over the parallel lines we will draw a second set of parallel lines, at different angles, one set over the other. For more drawing depth, feel free to add a third or a fourth set of lines and so on.

Building up layers requires more skill but its results are amazing because it involves different pencils with different graphite grades. You can master this technique with practice and good hand control. Take a look at some good tips for building up layers:
1.Start with simple light. Get a 2H pencil for this step. Pick a certain space on your draw paper and gently, scribble from right to left over a couple of inches. Halfway across, loosen up the pressure on the pencil to obtain lighter effect on the bottom side.
2.Darker lead.Pick an HB pencil and repeat step 1, only this time you will use HB pencil over the 2H pencil's initial drawing. Stop you scribbles at the halfway point for best effect.
3.Continue to darken. Take a 2B pencil, and repeat step 2, scribbling over the HB pencil drawing. When you finish you can see the obvious transition from dark to light.

So start practicing, handle everything with patience as you may need several times to master these great techniques, and don't forget to have fun.

Measurement concepts for drawing faces from photos

Let me explain the best method of measuring in drawing faces. Probably the easiest way to draw a face is to measure it. Everything can be measured. I have learned in school, like many of you have, that to measure a certain object I have to compare it to something I have seen before.For instance, when you measure the distance from one point to another in a map using the map scale.On the other hand artists measure certain objects by comparing them to themselfs.
Baselines are also comparison plans. For instance when you compare a mouse to a leopard, the mouse is very small.But when you compare the leopard with an elephant, the leopard is not that big. Size is relative, depending on the key componenets.
When we use this plan in art drawings, we compare the baselines in the photo to another particularity in that picture.
Determining baselines. Photographs are the simplest images and easy-to-use because they are pictures in two dimensions and they don't move. To practice this measurement you will need a pencil, an eraser, a sketch pad, paper and a photograph, preferably large.
1.Establish a baseline. Select an easy to use particularity in the photo and measure it with a straight line - for instance, the width of the eye. You can cut a piece of paper to measure it.
2.Transfer the baseline with to the chosen paper. Put the measured line on your paper. The marked line on the paper represents the baseline. This line will be used to measure any other specifics in that photo.
3.Compare and measure the other aspects. Compare the proportion of one feature to the baseline. Using the marked piece - the eye - now we can measure any part in the child's face by correlating it with the eye scale.
4.Place the correct measurements. Check each measurement on paper.

So start practising, it's so much fun and try doing friends or family portratis and impress them with you new skills. Good luck!
Stay tuned for more drawing ideas!
