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

Step 1: We will begin with the head. Draw a circular figure in the middle of your paper!

Step 2: In the middle of the circular figure, add eyes to the head by drawing in two circles, evenly spaced apart.

Step 3: Right below the eyes in the center of the head, add another small circle with two little curved lines coming off the bottom for the nose and mouth.

Step 4: Now, on each side of the head, add two small domes for the ears.

Step 5: Starting at the chin off to the left, draw in a vertical line in the downward position. Repeat this step by creating another parallel line, but this time, curve it into a horizontal line at the bottom. Add another horizontal line parallel to this one and connect both at the end.

Step 6: Now, off the right-most line, add little triangles down the back of the meerkat to create spines.

Step 7: It's time for the arms! Off to the left of the meerkat's body, draw in a set of vertical parallel lines that connect at the bottom with the hand. Move over to the right slightly and repeat the previous step to create the other arm.

Step 8: Now, below the two arms, add in two domes that point towards the left. At the base of both, add two almond-shaped figures for the feet!
