Hamster How to Draw

Step 1: Let’s draw the basic shapes and lines, applying a gentle pressure on the pencil. Start with a large oval for the body and then draw a circle in its right top part. The vertical line should curve to the right because the face is turned to the right.

Step 2: Draw four ovals for the arms and the legs. They all are inclined downward. The left two ovals are larger because we are looking at the hamster from the left.

Step 3: Add a small oval at the end of each large oval to trace the hands and the feet.

Step 4: Now we start drawing the contours, pressing on the pencil normally. Outline the face, marking the protruding cheek. Draw a line, dividing the light bottom part from the darker top part. Notice that the right part of this line is shorter and curves sharper.

Step 5: Outline the back and the tummy. The back and the left leg form one continuous line. The contour of the tummy is angular.

Step 6: Now let’s draw the arms. The left arm looks much thinner than the right one. The palms are very small and human-like.

Step 7: Draw the legs with small human-like feet. Trace a line on the left leg to mark the border of the light-colored fur.

Step 8: Draw the small round ears. As we are looking at the hamster from the left the right ear will be a bit narrower and more elongated. Draw a triangular nose on the vertical basic line and two curves for the cheeks. Add two short dashes on both ends of the cheek contour to mark a friendly smile.

Step 9: Only the eyes left to draw. The right eye is a bit narrower than the left one. Both pupils are closer to the nose. Erase all the basic shapes and lines before coloring.

Step 10: And now for the most fun part — let’s color the hamster! The hamster is brown with light-brown tummy. The bottom part of the face is also light-brown and the parts that are not covered with fur we will color pink. Trace over the contours again if they got blurred after coloring. The hamster is complete!
