STEP 1. Okay this tutorial is really easy. You will start this step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes to form a frame for the rat. Start by drawing a, oval circle for the head and a box shape for what's gonna be the snout. Next draw a large tear drop shape for the rats body. After the main shapes are drawn you can go ahead and add the guidelines for the legs, tail, and feet.   STEP 2. In this b=next step you will start to sketch out the face of the rat as well as start shaping out the chest and front legs. But lets work with the face first. Using the boxed shape that you drew in step one, start sketching out his face and the shape of his head. After you get that down you can sketch out his chest, front legs, feet and part of his underbelly and back foot.   STEP 3. In this step you will finish drawing out the eye and color the whole thing in except a small dot. Next sketch out the shape of the rats thin ear and then detail the front legs by adding the fur and claw nails. The last thing you want to do on this step is draw out the thick tail that grosses out most people including myself.   STEP 4. This is the last step and with the last step comes last minute detailing. First you are going to need to start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew back in step one to clean up your sketch. Next give the rat some whiskers and then detail the back by shaping it out using a jagged stroke. Next finish off the hind foot and then draw lines in the tail as shown to you here.   STEP 5. Next, draw the shape of the body as well as the shape of the foot. You don't need to stress yourself over this part, it's fairly simple.   STEP 6. Lastly, sketch the last foot, as well as the tail. Use thin line weights for the detailing of the tail.   STEP 7. That is it you are now done. ll that is left to do now is color him in. You can color him to look like a street rat or a household rat, your choice. After you are done coloring him/her in you just completed this tutorial on how to draw a rat step by step. That was super easy right? I will be back with another tutorial so stick around my artist friends.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
