How to Draw Cartoon Mouse

videotutorialbannerNEW

I was wondering why cartoon mouse is so popular. Actually, it was very difficult for me to choose the perfect character for you to practice.

All (cartoon) mice look so cute and lovely. I hope you will enjoy this one.

This mouse is very easy to draw and you can draw it very quickly.

First, practice this easy character. You can then go ahead and practice how to draw Mickey Mouse if you like.

It is fun to be able to draw these small creatures because you can make a quick illustration into your notes, journal, or simply show off when you are with your friends:)

Drawing this cute character should be very easy even if you are an absolute beginner.

Let’s Draw Cartoon Mouse

Draw an egg-like shape and a noodle as you see in this picture. The egg shape is the head and the noodle will be the body of your mouse.

Notice, that the egg shape ellipse is facing upwards. You can make your pencil lines rough and uneven, now it is OK. We shall erase them later.

Draw a perspective guideline over the head. This time you draw only one perspective line because this mouse’s head is drawn in profile. As always, the eyes will be sitting above this perspective guideline.

Add the eyes, the nose, the mouth, and the cheeks as you see in the picture.

Here I made a small correction on the top of the head. In the previous step, I draw the head ellipse a little smaller so the eyes would be then very close to the top of the head – see the pencil line marked with arrows – I correct it, so now it looks much better.

Also, notice that this cartoon mouse's head is quite large compared to its body. It is OK. Many cartoon characters have this feature.

Draw the rest of the mouse’s body. Draw all four legs – actually two legs and two hands – the ears and the tail. Similar to Cartoon Tiger the tail creates an accent.

You can now start to carefully erase all unnecessary pencil guidelines. Observe this picture well and do it similarly. Especially be careful while working on the mouse’s head and facial features. Erase narrow places using the pencil-type-eraser.

Outline precisely the eyes, cheeks, nose, and all face parts. Use your pencil gently. Do not push hard yet. Draw the contours of the fingers.





Now, a softer B4 or B6 pencil will come in handy but standard HB will do the job as well. Outline all the contours as you see in this picture. When you are finished, your picture should look like this one or better. Now you have a perfect cartoon mouse coloring page :)

Begin to color the mouse’s body. I recommend working out the eyes first and the rest of the head. Then color out the rest of the body. This will be easy because the tone of the dark grey shade is the same all over the mouse’s body. Leave the belly, cheeks, and inside of ears white or brighter.
