How to Draw a Platypus for Kids

Artist: ZoraLink / August 9, 2011

Step 1.

To start, draw the guidelines to help us draw the Platypus. The circles help draw body parts, while the lines help with legs, arms, and curves.

Step 2.

Begin drawing the head and back. The head resembles an egg shape.

Step 3.

Now we begin to draw the face features on the Platypus. Draw the bill carefully. Then draw the eyes above the Bill.

Step 4.

Now draw the rest of the head and the giant Beaver-like tail.

Step 5.

Now draw the feet and underbelly. Platypuses have webbed feet that allow them to swim at super-speed!

Step 6.

We are finished! Make the pupils dark and show off your amazing piece of artwork!

Description: I love doing these tutorials. I love Platypuses, and thought, "Why not do a Platypus tutorial?" So I did! Platypuses are the only mammals that lay eggs. The resemble a duck and a beaver at the same time. The have a duck's bill and a beaver's tail and hands. Pretty cool, huh?
