How to Draw a Cartoon Numbat - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Draw two small oval-shaped eyes at a little distance from each other and shade them in.

Step 2: Draw a curved "V" shaped head around it with a small hollow circle at the bottom for the nose.

Step 3: Draw two pointed triangular ears at the top of the head and connect both ears with a small curved line.

Step 4: Next, we draw the body by drawing a semi-circular curved line starting from the right of the ears and going down. Draw spiky curved lines for detail across the body.

Step 5: Now we draw the legs. Draw a straighter leg, curved at the bottom with grooves for the fingers at the bottom right below the head and another leg next to it. Make this one curved and shorter. Now draw a hind leg at the bottom of the back part of the body and make it curved at a right angle. Draw another very curved one behind that.

Step 6: Draw a curved, fuzzy loop for the tail starting from behind the body.
