How to draw a Porcupine tutorial

Let`s learn how to draw a tree porcupine.


When I worked at the Zoo, then I was familiar only with our crested porcupine. It was a large gloomy rodent all in black and white terrible-looking needles. He was a very down-to-earth beast and did not think about climbing trees. And I learned about tree porcupines only from the Internet. And it’s a pity: I would very much like to see the live animal with such an amazing nose.
