Step 6: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the body. Ferrets' torsos are very curvy, so make the lines in the middle wavy. Draw a curved line on the left side as a guide for the ferret'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 7: Draw the ferret's eyes inside the head using the lines as guides for placement. The eyes are just tiny circles. The eye on the right should be a bit smaller because of perspective. Draw a tiny circle inside each eye to represent glare. Then draw a bigger circle in each eye and shade it in for the pupil. Shade in the rest of the eye but make it lighter than the pupil. Draw a few more small lines around the eyes for extra detail.
Step 8: Draw the nose inside the ferret's muzzle using the lines and small circle as guides. First lightly sketch a rectangle-like shape. Then make the top of the shape curvier as you darken it. The sides should come inward more to create the nostrils. Draw a line at that splits the nose at the bottom. Draw a few small lines above the ferret's nose for fur.
Step 9: Use the small circle as a guide to draw the rest of the ferret's muzzle. Draw a line below the nose that splits in two to form the mouth. Draw the sides of the muzzle using quick, short strokes to represent fur. Use the edges of the small circle as a guide. Draw the chin by usin the bottom of the small circle as a guide. Use quick, short strokes for a fuzzy feel.
