How to Draw A Cartoon Hamster



Learn how to draw a nice and cute cartoon hamster! So you might ask yourself, what is exactly the difference between a mouse, a rat and a hamster? Well, first, the mouse and the hamster don't belong in the species. 

And anatomically, mouse do have a longer tail and larger ears. Also, the body of the hamster is rounder and smaller. So let's try to draw a nice hamster following all these guidelines as accurately as possible!

Step 1

Start your project by drawing a nice oval shape to create the head. Don't hesitate to sketch it big! Since the body of the hamster is small, drawing a smaller head will enhance this perception!

Step 2

Next, add two small circles to create the ears. Once you are finished, draw another big circle to form the body of your hamster. You can draw this shape really close to the head since the neck of this animal is barely visible.

Step 3

Continue your illustration by creating the eyes. I like to draw the eye on the far side (the one on the left in this example) a little bit smaller. You can also sketch the front and back legs of your hamster. Simply draw a circle for the hands and two rectangles (the one in the middle should be smaller) to create the legs.

Step 4

Now let's refine the shape of our beloved animal! You can join the right ear and the head together. Make sure that the tip of this ear is narrow and pointed. Do the same for the ear on the left.

Step 5

Now this step is crucial! For the body, draw the top part (which is the back of your hamster) rounder and larger. The bottom of the body can be completely flat, with a small curved in it. Add a small and cute tail to your character. For the legs, draw a furry part (the one connected to the body) and make sure that the forearm and the hands are similar to the ones of a human character.

Step 6

Finally, add some details like lines in the hands to separate all fingers properly. You can also sketch the pupils of your hamster. And if you wish to go a little further, add some shadows on the stomach and the tip of the mouth of your character.
