Outline the squirrel’s head.
Enclose two large curved triangles on top of the squirrel’s head. Then, enclose a smaller triangle inside each of the larger triangles. These form the squirrel’s ears.
Outline the top of the jaw using a wide rounded “M” shaped line. And shade the nose with a rounded triangle shape.
Draw a circle as the eye. Within the eye, draw a small circle, and shade between the two. Repeat the process to get the other eye.
Draw a circle to form the mouth. And draw tow small rectangles as the teeth inside the mouth. Use a series of short lines to sketch the squirrel’s beard.
Draw a nut in front of the squirrel’s mouth.
Erase the guide line. And leave some space to draw a hand holding the nut.
Sketch the body, hand and legs of the squirrel.
Enclose some curved lines to indicate a tuft of fur on top of the head. Draw the tail using a pair of long, curved lines that meet in a point. And add some curved lines inside to show more details.
And some small raindrop shapes on the nut.
Color the squirrel and the nut.
