Whether you have a mouse as a cute pet or one of those gentle creatures living on your wall, because they’re so cute, mice are popular as pets and characters in cartoons, movies, books, and more. This guide is for you if you want to create your artwork with a cute mouse.
How to Draw A Mouse
Mice are known for their large, round ears, so it seems fitting that we start with the ear for this first step of our how-to-draw-a-mouse guide. To draw this first ear, draw a comprehensive, rounded curved line as it appears in our reference image. We will add it in the following steps!
Using the ear you drew in the previous step, we’ll draw the beginning of a head and body for your mouse design. If you focus on the head first, it connects to the ear and has a round head with a pointed snout.
The rest of the head is also rounded. The body falls from the head, being relatively slender above and thin towards the bottom. Don’t forget to leave space in the lower body, as the leg will fit.
We will add the first leg in the next portion of our tutorial on how to draw a mouse. The leg will be pretty squat and rounded, and you can use a curved line to make it.
This is how you can draw the foot below. As you can see in the reference image, the leg portion is within the body contour, and the foot is flat on the floor.
This step creates more details about the mouse design. First, draw the other foot on the other side of the body, as you can see in the reference image.
Then use a curved line breaking from the ear already drawn to create the second ear. Finally, draw a flat triangular shape for the nose and finish this step with a curved line that will make your mouse smiling mouth.
Let’s start with some eyes to create a cute face for your mouse drawing. We kept them big and round with black circles to create ample irises for extra cuteness.
Then you can draw a square with a vertical line leading to the pointy teeth of the mouse and then use a circular shape to create the inner ear.
We’re nearing the end of this tutorial on how to draw a mouse, but before we get to the end, we need a few more details.
For this step, we will draw small guns for your mouse. These are much smaller than your mouse’s hind legs and are slightly curved for a cute look.
You’re almost ready to colour at the mouse drawing stage, but let’s draw some final details first. The most important of these is a long tail; what would a rat be without a tail? You can draw it with a long curvy black line.
Next, draw fine lines from the snout for some whiskers and a line under the mouse on the ground. These are the details we used for this design, but feel free to add as many points as you want!
Maybe your mouse is holding a delicious piece of cheese, or maybe there is a funny wallpaper behind it. How will you finish drawing your mouse?
Now that you’ve finished drawing, it’s time to have fun colouring with your excellent mouse! We used a grey colour scheme for our mouse, but that’s just one of the multiple choices you can select from.
Mice come in various colours, and you could use some of your favourite bright colours for a more stylish look.
Do you use lighter mediums like coloured paints or markers, or keep it more muted with watercolours or coloured pencils? You may have other favourite media you enjoy using, and we can’t wait to see what you choose!
Your Mouse Drawing is Finished!
