Updated: Sep 20, 2022
In this tutorial, we will learn to draw a nice home pet: the guinea pig.
Our guinea pig is quite furry and the biggest trick is to draw correctly all that fur so that it looks natural. Hope you will enjoy this drawing lesson.
Step 1. Outline the body and head of the guinea pig.
First, define the outline of the drawing, denoting the shape of the head and body of the guinea pig with two overlapping egg-shaped ellipses. Next, draw some guidelines, dividing the guinea pig's muzzle into four parts. Use a V to define the position of the nose. In our case, the whole body of the guinea pig is turned slightly to the side. It is important to correctly draw the guidelines for the eyes.
Step 2. Add details to the guinea pig drawing.
Add the details by using a few ovals to mark the position of the paws, then outline the ears and place the eyes exactly on the horizontal guideline.
Step 3. Continue to add details to the guinea pig drawing.
Draw the individual toes on the hind and forepaws, mark out the area of the nose with a "U" shaped line, and use small ovals to indicate the cheek pouches.
Step 4. How to draw guinea pig fur.
Create thick fluffy fur around the entire skeleton structure that we have already created, using short strokes of varying thicknesses.
Step 5. Finishing the guinea pig drawing.
Erase all the auxiliary lines and continue to draw the fur. Apply light shadows around the edges of the guinea pig to create a sense of roundness.
