Rats are known for their large and round ears, so it seems appropriate that we start with the ears for the first step of the tutorial on how to draw a mouse.
To draw this first ear, simply draw a large and rounded curve as shown in our reference image. We will add to it in the following steps!
Using the ear that you drew in the previous step, we will draw the head and body for your mouse drawing.
Focus on the head first, which will be connected to the ears and have a rounded head with a pointed muzzle.
The rest of the head will also be rounded. The body will come down from the head, and it will be quite thin at the top and thinner as it goes down.
Don’t forget to leave some space at the bottom of the body, as the legs will fit in that gap.
We’ll add the first leg in the next part of our tutorial on how to draw a mouse. The leg will be quite square and round, and you can use a curved line to create it.
Then you can draw the paw at the bottom of it. As you can see in the reference image, the leg part will be in the body contour and the foot will rest on the ground.
This step will focus on building some more details on your mouse drawing. First of all, draw the other foot protruding from the other side of the body as you can see it in the reference image.
Then use a curved line from the ear that you drew to create the second ear.
Finally, draw a flat triangle for the nose, then finish this step with a curved line to create a smiley mouth for your mouse.
To create a cute face for your mouse drawing, we’ll start with some eyes. We kept them big and round with black circles inside to create some large irises to add to the cute look.
You can then draw a square with a vertical line running down it to form the ratchet of the mouse, and then use a circle to create the inside of the ear.
We’re nearing the end of this tutorial on how to draw a mouse, but before we finish we’ll need some more details. For this step we will draw some small arms for your mouse.
They will be much smaller than the hind legs of the mouse and will be slightly curved to look cute.
You’re almost ready to color in the mouse drawing phase, but first we’ll paint some final details.
The most important of these is a long tail, like what would a mouse be without a tail?
You can draw this with a long, curved black line. Then draw some thin lines from the snout to make the whiskers and draw a line below the mouse for the ground.
These are the details we used for this drawing, but you can also add any details you want!
Next, you draw a beautiful butterfly to complete the drawing
Now that you’ve finished your drawing, it’s time for fun coloring on your awesome mouse!
We used a gray palette for our mouse, but that’s just one of many options you can choose from.
The mouse comes in a variety of colors and you can also use some of your favorite bright colors for a more stylish look.
