Let`s learn how to draw a mongoose.
It should be noted that there are several types of mongoose.
Lesson 1 – how to draw Indian grey Mungo
Kipling described this mongoose under the name of Rikki – Tikki. A mongoose is a small animal resembling a ferret in appearance and in character.
Quite a long torso:
This nimble animal has strong but short legs:
The long tail is covered with long hair, but doesn’t look fluffy.
This lover’s to fight with cobras muzzle looks to match his reputation.
And here we have a complete picture of Mungo:
Grey Indian Mungo really gray fur, but seems a little speckled.
Helogale mongoose drawing lesson
When I searched the Internet for photos of mongooses, I really liked this plump and fluffy one. As cute as a cat! And I quickly drew a step by step lesson. And only then I began to look for its name. Helogale – a dwarf mongoose. This cute animal has a body length of 15-20 centimeters. A little more than a mouse!
So, let’s start drawing this tiny mongoose from the diagram.
Refine the pencil drawing:
Now we understand how this animal looks like, and we can proceed to the drawing that we are planning.
Step 1. First, of course, we should draw the largest part. Certainly this is the body. But we will not be niggle and will draw the tail too.
Step 2. Hind legs drawing:
Step 3. Front legs:
Step 4. The mongoose’s muzzle would be pretty, if not for the skeptical – evil expression.
Step 5. Well, here we connected our mongoose piece by piece:
Step 6. Add cjlors. For example, I paint my pictures with just felt-tip pens.
Mongoose drawing lesson 3
This animal is definitely a mongoose, but I could not find exactly what species it belongs to. I hope this will not prevent it from hunting snakes, and will not turn us off drawing it in stages.
And here is the outline of our mongoose:
Now let’s try to convey the brown color of the mongoose’s fur.
I hope you got enough lessons to become proficient in drawing mongoose.
