How to Draw a Hedgehog
- Sketch the muzzle and lower body.
To do this, use a long and smooth line like in my example.

Use four simple semi-oval-like lines for this.
- Draw the outlines of the hedgehog’s spikes.
To do this, use a zigzag line that resembles a circular saw blade.
- Detail the hedgehog’s face.
Draw the eye, nose, and smiling mouth. Don’t forget to sketch a small line in the ear.
- Add more spikes.
To do this, use elongated angular lines as in my example.
- Erase the guidelines.
In addition, you can trace your hedgehog drawing to make it more cartoonish.
- Color the hedgehog.
Use beige, brown, and black colors. Add highlights to the eye and nose.
