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

Step 1: It's time to create a cute little hedgehog. Start by drawing a curved semi-circle downward to create the head.

Step 2: Next, let's add the eyes. In the middle of the head, place two large dots next to one another with a slight space in between.

Step 3: In the middle of the two eyes, slightly downward, add a few curved lines together to create the nose and mouth of your hedgehog.

Step 4: Now, at the top of the semicircle where the lines stop, add one circle to each side and draw a line through the center of each.

Step 5: Time for the body and spines! There should be an open space between the ears. Add in a zig-zag line here, have some fun with it. Now, starting with the right ear, continue to draw a zig-zag line off the top and continue this in a slightly downward position. At the base of the left ear, add another downward zig-zag line, connecting the two lines together at the bottom.

Step 6: Next, let's draw in the body. Where the two zig-zag lines connected, draw in a horizontal line that attaches to the base of the head.

Step 7: Now, at the base of the body, add in some very small feet by drawing in oval-shaped pieces with little lines for the toes at the bottom.
