STEP 1. Just by looking at this image you would think that this is a bug of some sorts. Start this first step by drawing an egg shape for the body and then draw the length of the snout. Next draw the thick shape of the tail, and add the leg lines too.   STEP 2. Start sketching out the shape of the snout, nose, tongue, head, and then the back which eventually flows to form the top of the tail.   STEP 3. Now you will start sketching out the neck and front leg shapes to thicken up the anteater's body. Once that is done you can then add the marking lines that giant anteaters have along the front sides of their shoulders. When your sketch looks like the one you see here, you can move to the next step.   STEP 4. Finish sketching out the front and back legs as you see here and when you do so, be sure to make the lining hairy looking because anteaters have hard bristly hair and or coats. The back paws needs to also have the claw like nails too, but it's the front claws that are longer and sharper.   STEP 5. Now you are ready to finish your drawing. All you have to do now is draw the back leg, finish drawing the poofy looking tail, and then draw the eye, pupils, and ear. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one to prepare your drawing for color.   STEP 6. Wow, look at that! You did an awesome job drawing an anteater. All you need to do now is color in this insect eating animal. Join me again for more drawing fun!   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6.
