How to Draw a Meerkat Head - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Draw the forehead and nose bridge by drawing a curved line to the left, slanting right sharply, before bring the line smoothly to the left again.

Step 3: Add two dots within the nose for nostrils, then from the bottom of the nose, bring a bumpy line back and up slightly right for the mouth.
Step 4: Just below and behind the nose, draw a curved line back from the mouth for the jaw. Add two curved lines below the jaw for the neck.
Step 5: Draw an arched line back slightly from the top of the head. Add an oval in the center above the mouth for the eye.
Step 6: Draw a circle within the eye and a small dot inside of it for the iris and pupil. From the back of the head, draw an arched line for the ear.
