How To Draw A Beaver Easy

Do you want to bring a bit of nature’s cuteness into your art? Why not draw a beaver! Drawing a beaver need not be a chore; by following a few simple steps, you could be creating a beautiful beaver portrait in no time. To make it even easier, we’ve gathered up all the tools and tips you’ll need to get the job done.

First and foremost, use a sharp pencil for the initial draft of your beaver. You’ll need it to draw the silhouette of your beaver and to set the size and shape of details like eyes, face shape, and body. Next, use a toothy brush to draw the back of your beaver. You will be able to bring out the natural fur pattern of your beaver using these funky brushes. Next, use a soft rubber eraser to add highlights to your beaver. This will bring out the natural texture and make your beaver look vibrant and alive.

You’ve got the tools, now it’s time to get to work. Begin your work by drawing the cartoon-like silhouette of the beaver. It need not be perfect. Just try to get the basic proportions and shape as accurately as you can. Once you have the silhouette down, it’s time to add the details. For the head, you can sketch a round face, and then make two slanted triangles for the eyes and nose. Add a small line for the mouth and make it look more alive with details like whiskers, tooth and the fur pattern.

Now let’s move on to the body of the beaver. Start with a curved line for the back. Then draw two curving lines for the sides of the body. Add some details like curled-up fur and rounded edges to make it look more realistic. Finally, draw four curved lines at the bottom of the beaver to make it look as if it is swimming in the lake. Flip it back and you’ll get your completed beaver-swimming masterpiece!

To make your beaver look extra realistic, use a dark pencil such as a 4B or 6B pencil to darken the shadows and lines on the body. Then use a white pencil to add highlights to the fur of your beaver. This will make it look as if your pup is glistening in the sun! To add the final touches, use a black pen to draw the outline of your beaver and to further darken the details of its face. Be sure to leave the white highlights intact!

Assembling the pieces of your beaver portrait and creating a stunning masterpiece is the easy bit. Believe it or not, the real challenge lies in rendering it with enough emotion to make it your very own. Little touches like the curl at the edge of its mouth or a mischievous sparkle in its eyes can really bring your drawing to life. So don’t be afraid to get creative and have fun!

You have your tools, you have your plans, and you have your beaver drawing strategy. All that’s left to do is to commit to it and draw your heart out! Drum the rhythm in your head and find your groove. Get lost in the details and let your imagination guide you. In no time, you’ll be seeing your beaver swim off into the sunset. Let’s get cracking!
