Great! Let's start this lesson by drawing a few basic shapes as shown in the picture below. First, draw a small circle to form the nose. The head is made from two curved lines. Then, draw a large oval shape to illustrate the body. A few spines are added using sharp triangles. Finally, draw three small feet using more curved lines.

It's time to use all these shapes to draw the character using thick outlines. Don't forget to add a large eye using an oval shape. The mouth is created from a short curved line and smaller lines are added inside the feet. Once you are finished, you can erase all gray lines.

Excellent! This is the cartoon porcupine once all lines are added. This fun character is pretty amazing, but adding colors is definitely a good idea. Otherwise, the image feels boring and not very interesting.

For this example, two different brown colors are used. The one covering the back of the animal (and the spines) is rich and saturated. The one used inside the head and the feet is slightly brighter and more subtle. A darker version is used for the eye and the nose.
