How to Draw a Badger

Artist: Dawn / January 20, 2011

Step 1.

Begin by drawing out a circle shape for the head, and then another shape for the body which looks like an egg. Draw in the facial guidelines and then add the leg lines.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the shape of the badgers face structure making sure to pay close attention to the snout because that is the part of the animal that is long and narrow. Also, you will have to draw out the ears.

Step 3.

Draw in the inner ear detailing like so, and then color in some beady looking eyes. Next, draw out the nose tip, and then move to step four.

Step 4.

Now you can draw out the two thick spear shaped stripes that start at the forehead, and covers the eyes completely. Add some minor detailing to the nose, and move to step five.

Step 5.

You will now start sketching out the shapes of the front legs, and chest, and then be sire to include the sharp pointed claws as well.

Step 6.

Okay, sketch out the badger's body like you see it here, and then be sure to draw out the back legs, and back clawed paws. You will also have to draw out the belly too.

Step 7.

To finish off the badger all you have to do is draw out the tail, and add some marking lines on the top of the tail. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one, and then you can see what the final drawing looks like when it's all cleaned up
