How to Draw A Porcupine using simple shapes and lines

How To Draw A Porcupine Using Simple Shapes And Lines

It might be a good idea to avoid pointed objects while learning how to draw a porcupine using this tutorial! Seriously, this illustration is so easy to draw that even beginners can achieve this character in just a few minutes. I'll show you how to transform a few basic lines into a marvelous cartoon character.

Above is a colored version of the porcupine you are about to draw. To make this lesson even easier, I have decided to create a front version. Indeed, a side version would be more challenging and difficult to duplicate.

Step 1

Great! Let's start this lesson with the creation of the head using a large oval shape. Notice how the top of the shape is narrower, a little bit similar to the shape of an egg. Next, add a long curved line below the head to illustrate the body.

Step 2

Nice! The feet and legs of the porcupine are represented by the top part of small circles. The back legs are a little bit more complex since, unlike the front ones, the legs and the feet are visible.

Step 3

The spines are illustrated with numerous curved lines. These lines are wider at the bottom of the illustration and pointed on top. No need to sketch tons of line. Only a few a needed.

Step 4

Time to work on the head of this cute cartoon porcupine. The nose is drawn using a small oval shape. The eyes and the pupils are made from circles. Large eyes and pupils are necessary to express all the cuteness of this character (yes, that's the secret!).
