How to Draw an Otter for Kids

Artist: Dawn / October 26, 2011

Step 1.

Make an oval or egg shape for the head of the otter. You will then add face guides.

Step 2.

Thicken the lining of the shape you just drew and then draw in the slopped ears of the otter.

Step 3.

Draw out the shapes of the eyes like you see here and then make the lining that will form the eye balls like so.

Step 4.

Make the acorn shape of the nose and then draw the thin lines that forms the nostrils. Draw the mouth or lips and then add three whiskers on each side of the otter's face.

Step 5.

Draw the chest, and then make the shapes of each front leg. Draw the toe lines too before proceeding to step six.

Step 6.

For the last drawing step all that is left to do is draw the shape of the back, tail, and hind legs. Do the same thing you did in step five by making the toe lines as well.

Step 7.

When you finish cleaning up your drawing you should have a sketch that looks as good as the one you see here. Color in your otter and you're done.
