STEP 1. To begin things simple and short, start off with two medium sized circles to proportion the essentials of the rat. Trace over a circular object to get a perfect circle. Draw your guides LIGHTLY!   STEP 2. Next, work on the head frame and the snout for this character, taking your time to ensure accuracy. If something doesn't look right, redraw to make it perfected!   STEP 3. Then, we'll start working on the facials as well as the protruding whiskers. You can add more if you like, but to keep things simple, start with three!   STEP 4. Finish off the head by working on the ears. I added a chipped piece in there for a more, violent and ratty look. You can draw over it if you prefer though :)   STEP 5. Sketch out the forelegs, having three fingers for each hand. Keep things simple, remember!   STEP 6. Complete the abdomen by fleshing out the backlegs and three toes for the feet. Keep the body of this rat nice and rounded, to emphasize the diet of this creature (eats trash, rotted food, etc).   STEP 7. Lastly, complete the rat by adding the tail and a few simple, thin lines for each section. Rats have an appearance on their tails that look sectioned. To make things easier, you can section it off by using only four or five lines!   STEP 8. With essential tweaks, you should have something similar to this. Ink over your drawing with permanent marker or very dark valued graphite pencils. I hope you've enjoyed this lesson, thanks for viewing!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
