Great! Start this lesson with the addition of a large oval shape to illustrate the head. Next, draw a small rectangle below the first shape to represent the body. Make sure this new shape is smaller than the original one.
Time to work on the legs and feet. Use the top part of an oval shape to create the front feet. For the back legs, A long curved line with two circles can be used. To increase perspective, make sure the front legs are larger.
On top of the head of the cartoon beaver, draw two small oval shapes that are representing the ears. The tail can be made from a long rectangle with round corners. Make sure that the tail is properly aligned with the back legs.
