How to Draw a Platypus with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Start by drawing your mouth. Although ducks are mammals, they have a flat beak like a duck.
Now add some details to the face. For eyes, draw two small circles at the end of the beak. For the nostrils, draw a small circle at the other end of the beak.
Now draw the neck and foot this side. Do you know? Platypods have membranous feet that they use to swim through water.
Next, draw the platypus body. Draw a short line behind the first leg, and a longer line on the other side. Leave plenty of open space on the back of the body – that’s where you’ll add the tail later.
Now draw another leg forward. Do not forget to add webbing between toes!
Your next step is to paint your hind legs. It looks like the front, but a little longer and more skin.
Now that you have drawn the head and body of the platypus, all that remains is the tail. The duckweed has a very broad and flat tail, just like a beaver. This tail helps propeller while underwater, where it can breathe for nearly 30 seconds!
Color the platypus to make it more realistic.
