Form The Head
First, outline the pointy shape of the badger’s head as shown. Next, draw the fur pattern on its head by drawing two diagonal lines.
Draw The Face
Now, create a shaded oval for the eye and add a small curved shape for the nose. Then, draw a small semi-circle with a curved line inside to outline its ear. After that, draw a curved line attached to the top of the head to form the other ear.
Outline The Body
Outline the pointy elongated shape of the badger’s body.
Attach The Tail
Create a curved line attached to the body to draw the badger’s tail.
Form The Legs
Form the shape of the badger’s legs attached to the bottom of its body similar to the illustration. Then, draw three thin triangular shapes on each leg to add its claws.
