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

Step 1: Begin with the head of the porcupine. We will want to create a jagged line on the top of the head and continue this line in the right direction. Off the base of the head, add a small curved line upward to create the smile.

Step 2: At the right end of the head, add a small circle for the nose.

Step 3: Now, in the center of the head, add a large black dot for the eye.

Step 4: Time for the body! You will want to make a very jagged body by starting at the left side of the face and drawing a jagged horizontal line off to the left. Transition this line upward and connect it back to the top of the head.

Step 5: At the base of the porcupin's body, add in a curved left foot, followed by a horizontal line and another curved front foot underneath the mouth of the porcupine.
