Printable How To Draw A Ferret Worksheet

This free printable how to draw worksheet is a project that many young artists will enjoy drawing. Ferrets are cute and fun. This is a drawing of a ferret who is stopped and looking at you.

Parents and teachers will be able to use this in class and at home. It can be an extra activity to fill in time or sent home as an extra project.

FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Learning to draw takes practice and some time. If what you draw does not turn out just the way you had hoped it would do not give up.  A real artist is harder on himself than anybody else. Your frustration shows you have the talent but skill is different. So practice and draw every day to develope your skill. Come back to my blog often and try some other projects. I am always adding new ones and I am sure you will find some you like.

PRINTABLE PROJECT NOTES

Start by drawing lightly so you can erase later.

COMPOSING THE FORM.
Use common shapes to sketch in the form. Use a half circle for the arched back, skinny triangles for the front legs, a half circle for the back leg upper part, rectangles for the back leg lower part, a circle for the head and crooked rectangles for the chest and neck.

DEVELOPING THE FORM
Add in the far leg, it is a curved line in the front and a straight line in the back.
Add circles for the ears they are at the top side of the head.
The top of the head is sort of flat.
The feet are long with long finger-like claws.

FACE
The eyes are wide apart and are circles with black circles inside.
The nose is like a rounded triangle in the middle of the face.
The mouth is three curved lines, two go down from the nose and curve outward, the third is underneath touching the first two and being down like a frown.
There are two dash-like marks on the front of the nose.

SHADING THE FUR
Use shading to give it roundness. Do not start with black but start with grey and use the black only for the very darkest areas like the far leg, the bottom edge of the tail, under the chin and stripe across the chest.
As you shade use short lines going back in the direction of the fur. Take your time shading and it will look good.
Shade the body a light gray but leave the face pure white.
The bandit mask is black.
