You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by drawing an oval to outline the squirrel’s head.
Below the oval, outline the jaw using a series of curves. Allows the lines to meet at jagged points, forming the shape of the fur.
Connect the jaw to an oval using a short, curved line. Line the upper part of the jaw with an “M” shaped circle.
Sketch the squirrel’s body using a long and curved line. Continue with a series of connected serrated curves at the bottom.
Stretch a short and curvy line from the top to form the neck. Continue with a long and curved line to form the arm. Draw a series of curves parallel to this line, forming the opposite side of the arm.
Using a series of curves, joined together at jagged points, roughly surround a circle at the bottom of the shape. This forms the squirrel’s hip. Draw a curve for the back, connecting the arms to the hips.
Draw a curve to indicate the hip on the opposite side, allowing for a bit of jagged hair on the bottom.
Draw a bun on top of the head using a series of long and short curves, allowing the lines to join into sharp points.
Draw the ears by stretching out a set of curves on each side of the hair. Allows lines to meet at rounded points.
Erase the guides from the ears and hair.
Draw a teardrop shape to form each eye. In the eye, draw a circle. Then draw a curve through the bottom of the circle and two smaller circles near the top. Shade between small circles and lines. Draw a few short, curved lines at the ends of each eye to form eyelashes.
Draw a slightly irregular, rounded, inverted triangle to form a nose. Draw a wide and circular “W” shaped line to form the upper part of the mouth. Place an irregular shape below the top of the letter “W” and draw a straight line down the middle of the shape. This forms the squirrel’s large teeth. Draw a “U” shaped line to complete the mouth and use two curves to indicate the tongue.
Give the squirrel an acorn. Draw a narrow, rounded, curved rectangle to form the acorn cap. Wrap a narrow cylinder over the lid to form the trunk. Point out the far arm using a curve. Draw the squirrel’s hand, using narrow “U” shape lines to form the fingers. Finally, outline the shape of the oak itself using two curves.
Remove instruction lines from acorn.
Draw a curve above each eye to indicate the eyebrows. Loop each foot using a series of curves, so that the lines overlap and form the toes.
Start the squirrel’s bushy tail by drawing a curve from the hip to the face, and another extending from the side of the head.
Draw a series of curves to surround the tail, some of which meet at jagged points. Note how the lines at the ends of the tail overlap, forming a gap.
Detail each ear using two curves. Extend the curves from face to arms, arms to hips, and hips to tip of tail.
