how to draw a rat step-by-step

Start the rat cartoon by drawing a curved line for the face, doubling it for the nose and adding shaded oval eyes.

Create a curved line for the nose and another for the mouth, adding short lines for the jaws and head base.

Create rat ears with curved overlap and contours, extending the neck line into the nearest ear.

Create a leg for the rat using curved lines with jagged points and overlapping toes with sharp claws.

Draw the rat’s remaining foreleg, again using overlapping curved lines. Then, use a long curved line for the animal’s belly.

Draw a long curved line from the ear, forming the rat’s back and rump.

Create a "C" line for the rat's hip and use small curved lines with jagged points for fur.

Use a series of overlapping curved lines to draw the rat’s rear foot and toes. Notice how the toes are pointed to indicate claws.

Create rat's tail with two long, curved lines meeting at a point, textured with short curved lines.
