Step 6: Draw two long, diagonal lines that stretch back as guides for the sides of the sugar glider's body. The longer these lines are, the longer the body will be.
Step 7: Add the lower part of the sugar glider's body by drawing two more small circles for the feet and a long line for the bottom. The resulting shape of the guide for the sugar glider's body should be similar to a diamond with a small circle at each corner.
Step 8: Draw a curved line on the lower half of the body as a guide for the sugar glider's tail.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 9: Lightly sketch the eyes inside the head as circles using the initial lines as guides for placement. Darken the outline of the sugar glider's eyes when you get the shape and placement right. Add some curved lines above and below the sugar glider's eyes for the bare skin all around them. The eye on the right side should be thinner because of the perspective. Shade the inside of the eyes except for a small circle to represent glare. Sugar gliders' eyes are pretty dark, so don't worry about the pupil not showing up. Press down hard on your pencil to get a darker value for the eyes.
