In this simple tutorial, I will teach you how to draw a chipmunk in just nine very easy steps. This guide will be helpful for you.
In this lesson, I want to tell you and demonstrate how to draw a chipmunk. I promise that the lesson will be interesting and not difficult at all.
Now you will learn how to draw a chipmunk step by step. A chipmunk is a small rodent that looks like a squirrel. This is a cute and funny animal. The chipmunk lives in the forest between the trees, while it perfectly masks the entrance to its hole.
The main feature of the chipmunk is that it hides food behind its cheeks. Thus, the chipmunk is able to carry a lot of nuts at one time and at the same time the cheeks look very funny. A chipmunk can have a large supply of food in his dwelling.
I hope you enjoyed learning a few facts and the lives of these little rodents and are ready to start the lesson. If you have all the art supplies at the ready, then you can begin work.
