How to Draw a Mouse Step by Step
Kids or grown ups alike can follow these simple steps with this Mouse Drawing guide! I would recommend creating your drawing with a pencil, as you can erase if you have any mistakes. But you can always draw over it with an ink Pen or marker when you are done, to define it some more. You might find our Drawing Supplies for Beginners Post HERE useful. Have fun creating some of these active mammals!
Mouse Drawing Step 1
Step 1: First, let’s draw the mouse tail. To do that, sketch a capital “U” slightly bent on one side.
Step 2: Then, add his body by putting a half-moon-like shape on top of the tail. Add a big black dot on the left that will serve as the eye.
Step 3: Now, highlight the arms of your mammal by drawing four curved lines in a shape of letter “C” on the body. Then, draw the feet by adding six slanted lines at the bottom of it. At this point you have a simple cartoon mouse and you could stop there, or continue on to add more details.
Step 4: And, finally, complete your furry friend by adding the other parts of its body and the additional details as shown above. Add its whiskers by drawing slanted lines near the nose area. Sketch ears by putting two inverted “U” near its eye. And, give emphasis on its tail by drawing small scattered lines in it.
The only thing left to do now is to color in your small mammal! Go grab your markers, Crayola crayons, oil pastels or color pencils, or whatever you have on hand, and finish your artwork masterpiece! This one is colored in with a gray body and pink tail, but you can let your creativity go wild and use whatever colors you like! You get to decide!
