How to Draw Beaver
Begin by forming a round line for the head and a prominent nose in the middle.
Draw the eyes as two small circles above the nose, and add a tiny circle inside each for the pupils. Sketch a small line for the mouth just below the nose.
Draw a curved triangle to create the ears. Then, draw curved lines to represent fur.
Next, draw the beaver’s body by simply adding a curved line starting from the ear of the beaver.
For the beaver’s arms, draw two curved lines extending from the lower side of the body.
Draw small round shapes at the end for hands. Include little lines to indicate fingers.
Next, add the hind legs by drawing two more curved lines at the bottom of the body. The hind feet should be larger than the hands and rounded.
For the tail, draw a large, flat, and oval shape extending from the back of the body.
Draw the tail, giving it a textured, grid-like pattern for realism.
Finally, color your beaver drawing. Beavers typically have brown fur, so use various shades of brown for the body and a darker shade for the tail’s pattern.
