In today’s tutorial I’ll be showing you how to draw a guinea pig! Guinea pigs are adorable little critters that are extremely popular in the pet trade. So, grab your pencils and let’s learn how to draw a guinea pig!
To get our guinea pig started, we will first need to draw a large bean shape for its body.
Next, draw the guinea pig’s tiny triangular shaped nose an a small curve for the mouth on the front of the bean shape.
Next, draw the guinea pig’s tiny almond shaped eye, about halfway up the guinea pig’s body.
Now we will need to draw the guinea pig’s large oval shaped ears sitting on top of its head.
Guinea pigs have incredibly short legs, so we will be drawing a small bump at the bottom of the body to suggest a leg. Beneath that bump, draw the guinea pig’s tiny foot with a few sharp toes.
Repeat the previous step to draw the guinea pig’s front legs and feet.
Now we will need to outline the pattern on our guinea pig. Guinea pigs come in a wide variety of shapes and colors, so feel free to get creative for this step!
All that’s left to do now is to give our guinea pig a little color. I chose the standard white and brown, but guinea pigs also come in beige, grey, black, tan, brindle, and much more!
