STEP 1. Lightly sketch out the basic shape of the Tanuki Leaf with guidelines for the eyes, stem and centre of the leaf.   STEP 2. Re-outline the shape of the Tanuki Leaf but this time, on the left side, include a sort of round hole shape. Also, include that small stem at the bottom.   STEP 3. Using the same thickness of the outline, draw the centre line of the leaf where the guideline should be. Make the line slightly curved. Then draw the thin eyes at a fair distance apart while staying inside the guidelines.   STEP 4. This time, use thinner lines to draw the stripes of the Tanuki Leaf. Make them look like they are closing in onto the centre line of the leaf. It will make the leaf look curved and not flat. Try to make sure the lines don't touch the eyes.   STEP 5. Erase or rub out the guidelines and color your Tanuki Leaf in 3 brown shades. You could look at the official picture to see how it looks like.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5.
