How to draw a Wombat tutorial

Let`s learn how to draw a Wombat.

Wombat is the original rodent, endemic to Australia. It is very similar to the usual bear or Koala.

A few words about the biology of wombats. Although pretty,they are very large animals(even more than a meter in length) and they will not allow to offend them. Wombats are nocturnal animals, during the day they rest in their large and long holes. These burrows wombats dig with their powerful clawed paws – they are professionals in the digging. If someone tries to intrude into the dwelling, wombat can crush the attacker against the wall of the burrow with its powerful croup. I was surprised and delighted when I read about this method of self-defense. Keep it up,Wombat!

I hope you enjoyed this animal, let’s draw it.

This picture is good because it clearly shows the structure of the animal – the fur is not long yet and the wombat does not look like a haystack with the face of a hamster.
