Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Beaver (Cartoon)" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two short, curved, horizontal lines for the top part of the cartoon beaver's eyes. The curved lines should be pretty far apart. Don't place them too close together. Draw another small line under the eye on the left for the eye's bottom edge. Add a line under the eye on the right to complete the shape of the eyes.
Step 2: Inside the eyes, draw two tiny dots for the pupils. Draw the pupils close to the left edge of each eye. Above each eye, draw a short, curved line for the beaver's eyebrows.
Step 3: Below the eyes, off to the right, lightly sketch a small circle for the beaver's nose. When you get the size and placement right, darken the nose but make the bottom pointier. Inside the nose, near the bottom, draw two short, curved lines for the nostrils.
Step 4: Under the nose, draw the mouth as a line that splits in two and curves to the left and right. Break up the mouth into short strokes to represent fur. Draw a curved line that starts next to the eye on the right and ends at the mouth for the rest of the beaver's muzzle.
Step 5: Under the mouth, draw a square-like shape with a line across the middle for the beaver's front teeth. Draw a few lines to the left of the nose for the muzzle and under the teeth for the chin.
