How to Draw a Possum for Kids
I started writing out this lesson yesterday but I once again got side tracked and started doing something else. So here I am today ready to finish something I started. Up next we are going to be diving into a tutorial that will show you "how to draw a possum for kids", step by step. The actual correct spelling of this rodent's name is opossum, but we spell and say it like the 'o' is silent. Possum's are one of the animals on my top ten nastiest animals list. I'm sorry if I offended you in any way by saying that, but I can't help it, the possum is an ugly, ratty looking animal that creeps me out. In order for younger artists to want to even draw such a hideous looking species, I decided to try and make my possum creation somewhat viewable. I managed to create a cute looking version of a possum, and I think you will have fun drawing it out. I will dismiss myself so you can get busy. I still have more drawing fun coming your way so stay tuned in to see what's next.....
Make an oval shape for the possum's head and then make a neck and another shape for the body. Add a face guide and move to step two.
Using the shape you drew in step one, begin sketching out the actual shape of the head and or face. Draw in the ears, and then add some inner detailing.
You are now ready to draw in the eyes, nose and mouth. When drawing the top lids, be sure to make them thick and bold.
Draw the neck and chest like so, and then draw in the possum's legs, some of the stomach, and then draw in the long toe nails like so.
Yes you are, you are now on the last drawing step. All you have to do is draw in the back of the neck, as well as the back, thigh, and foot. Be sure to add those long nails and when you're done with that, draw the long rat like bald tail. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.
Here is the line art guys, as you can see you can start coloring in your possum and then draw a simple background.
