Step by Step Hedgehog Drawing Instructions
Start by drawing a small circle.
You are then going to draw a line coming from the circle on the top and on the bottom. Add a slight curve.
Next, you are going to connect the curved lines.
This is your chance to add a cute face!
The hedgehog needs his body, so now you can start adding a pointed body as shown below! These are called quills. The quills on a real hedgehog are made of keratin, which is what your nails and hair are made of!
Add feet to the hedgehog’s body!
He is going to need four feet in total.
You can add extra quills to the hedgehog’s body to make it look more realistic.
This is the final step where you can go back and add any final details to your hedgehog that you’d like!
Take the time to add color detail to your hedgehog as well. You can use brown for the body and a peach color for the face.
