How to Draw an Agile Wallaby - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: Let's draw an agile wallaby! Trace two upside-down letter Us for the ears. From the second ear, trace a sloped line for the face, then another across the bottom for the jaw.
Step 2: Outline the first ear with some extra lines. Draw an oval for the eye, and trace a circle with a dot in it for the snout.
Step 3: Trace a long and deeply curved back. Then, trace a short line down the front for the neck. There's your body!
Step 4: Trace two short lines that end with even tinier lines at the end for the paw. There's the first arm.
Step 5: Draw the second arm, and since most of it is hiding behind the first arm, just a line along the front and end with the paw peeking out at the bottom.
Step 6: Draw a line for the belly, then trace a very big hind leg. From the body, draw two lines very wide apart and end them with a flat foot.
Step 7: Draw only the flat foot on the other side, since most of the second leg is hiding behind the first!
Step 8: Add a long tail to finish, making sure that it's not too pointy! There's your agile wallaby!
