The guinea pig is a pretty cute member of the rodent family and the perfect subject for drawing. Ideality is due to the structure of the figure. In the most primitive version, to draw a guinea pig, it is enough to be able to draw an oval. But to create a more perfect drawing, you need to practice drawing an egg. As soon as you learn to draw eggs passably - you are already one hundred percent ready to draw a guinea pig!

It is necessary

pencil, eraser, colored pencils, felt-tip pens, sketchbook or sketchbook


Step 1

Draw two eggs in a horizontal position: one smaller for the head, the other larger for the torso. The blunt side of the small egg should intersect with the bottom edge of the sharp side of the large egg. Do not press hard on the pencil, as many extra lines will have to be erased later.

Step 2

Close the outer corners formed when the two parts intersect with two short lines. This way you will outline the lines of the neck, but for now you will have a candy in the center of the drawing. Approximately in the center of the small egg, a little closer to the sharp part, draw a bold point - the eye.

Step 3

At the top of the blunt side of the small egg, draw two very small semicircles - one on the inside and one on the outside. These will be ears. In the center of the inner semicircle, draw another, smaller semicircle to give the ear a natural look.

Step 4

Now draw the paws for the pig. It is worth noting here that the front legs of guinea pigs are four-toed, and the hind legs are three-toed. Moreover, all four are very short, and they are practically invisible. Unless you plan on sticking to fundamental image accuracy, draw three three-toed legs for your pig - two in the front under the sharp part of the large egg and one under the blunt part. It makes no sense to draw the second hind paw, since it is completely unrealistic to see it from such a side angle behind the curvaceous forms.

Step 5

Guinea pigs are most often spotted in color, and the belly in the throat is usually lighter, even white. Draw two vertical, slightly concave lines inside the large egg. With another arc, outline the nasal region of the muzzle. Thus, you highlight the contours of the spots. Add three short tendrils at the bottom of the small egg on the sharp side.

Step 6

Gently erase the extra lines ("candy") and start coloring. A guinea pig can have not only a spotted, but also a monochromatic color - white, gray, brown, chocolate. If you want to draw such a pig, then you don't need the outline of the spots. Although in this case, try to make the neck area lighter. And in some breeds of these animals, with a monochromatic color, a white spot flaunts on the forehead - a rosette. There are also dolmatin pigs. They are white with dark specks.

Step 7

But the "classic" guinea pig is still colorful, with spots or wide stripes. It can be brown and white, black and white and red, black and white, white and gray. Try to make a white muzzle and chest, a red (brown) eye area, and a black neck. Next there will be a wide white stripe, and another wide brown one. If a guinea pig has a tail, it is so small that it is imperceptible.

Step 8

When you have finished painting the picture with colored pencils, take a felt-tip pen that matches the color and trace the outer contours of the animal figurine. Or use a colored pencil for these purposes, but draw bold lines and with strong pressure. Accentuate the eyes, antennae, toes with a black felt-tip pen. It is not worth strengthening the inner contours, otherwise a zebra or a tiger may turn out instead of a guinea pig.

Step 9

Add shading with green or brown pencil under the pig's belly, indicating ground, floor, or grass. You can draw next to it a bowl, a cage, flowers (after all, it can be a wild guinea pig) or any other decorations you wish.
