How to Draw a Hedgehog Clipart

Let's see how you could draw this hedgehog clipart using the tutorial found below in just four easy steps. However, before proceeding, let's learn a little bit more about this intriguing animal. Hedgehogs are mostly found in Europe, Asia, Africa and New Zealand. 

Unlike the quills of porcupines, the spines located on the back of a hedgehog is not poisonous. They use these spines to defend themselves from predators. Unfortunately, these cute animals are also considered like pests in some parts of the world. 

Today, you will learn how to sketch a simple version like the one found below using mostly basic shapes and simple lines. Don't worry if you are not able to draw this cartoon hedgehog on your first attempt. With a little bit of practicing, I'm sure you will be able to draw a similar version within a few minutes.

Step 1

Great! Let's begin by adding the body using a large rectangle made from a bold outline. On top of this shape, draw two small circles to illustrate the ears of the animal. Then, use several small triangles to form the spines behind the body of the cartoon hedgehog.

Step 2

Next, draw two large circles to represent the eyes of the character. Inside the eyes, you can draw large pupils as shown in the image below. The nose is made from a large oval shape and the mouth is done using a long pointed line. Finally, small patches can be added inside the ears.

On the bottom of the character you can draw small feet made from circles. The arms are done using straight lines and a large patch can also be drawn on the stomach of the animal. We are done for the drawing part of this lesson. Let's work with colors now! :)

Step 4

Colors used to fill in this character are hard to described! You can see below how the body and feet are brighter while the spines and the eyes are darker. Patches found inside the ears and on the stomach are almost white while the nose and the mouth are black.
