PRINTABLE NOTES. 

BEGINNINGS.
Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.

Use common shapes to make the simple outline.
A circle for the head and a little ways below the circle draw a large teardrop. The teardrop should be at least three times the size of the circle.
Use a half circle for the muzzle.
Use two curved lines for the shoulders and arms to to connect the head and the body.

DEVELOP FORM
Use curved lines for the arms and legs.
The top of the head is flat.
The ear is like a small circle at the back of the head.
The feet are outlined first as squares for size and shape.

REFINING THE PICTURE
Work over the lines so they flow together smoothly since he is a fat little fella.

HEAD
Use a guideline to keep the eye, ear, and nose straight they are in a line. The eye is a curved arch and a curved line below like an almond. The nose is like a "V," The mouth is like another "V" upside down.

HANDS AND FEET.
Lightly draw the bones first with circles and lines then outline circles and lines to get the knotty shape of the joints on the toes and fingers. Don't forget the claws.

FUR
Maybe the fur is the most important part. Take your time and use short lines. The lines should go outward away from the center to the edges. Use more lines to make shadows and fewer to make the highlights.
