How to Draw A Furry Head – Let’s Get Started!
For this first step of our guide on how to draw a furry head, we will be starting with the eyes, ears and top of the head.
For the eyes, you can start with some ovals that have black dots inside of them. Then, you can use some rounded lines for the outline of the eyes.
Once you have the eyes looking as they do in our reference image then you can start on the top of the head.
Some more rounded lines will be used to create the ears. Finally for this step, you can use some sharper lines to create the hair between the two ears.
Step 2 – Draw some more details for the ears and hair
Now, we will be adding some more details for the ears and hair for this step of your furry head drawing!
First, you can start with some more curved lines inside of the ears for some more inner detailing for them.
Once you have done that, then you can add some more sharp and pointed lines to finish off the tuft of hair that is between the ears of the head.
Step 3 – Now, draw the outline of the head
Your picture is really starting to take shape now! To keep that momentum going for this guide on how to draw a furry head, we will work on the head outline for this part.
To do this, you will be using a curved line for the chin of the head. On the other hand, you will use some sharper lines for the sides of the head.
This will make the sides of the head look furrier, much like how you drew the hair earlier.
Step 4 – Next, draw some facial details
In this step of your furry head drawing we will be adding some details and elements to the face.
First, you can use a rounded triangular shape for the nose, and then the muzzle will be connected to that in two parts.
Finally, a rounded line will go beneath this muzzle for the mouth. Finally for this step, you can draw an eyebrow over the eye on the right. That will help to give this face even more expressiveness!
Step 5 – Now, you can finish off the final details of your furry head drawing
You’re almost ready to start adding some amazing colors in this guide on how to draw a furry head!
Before this, however, we have just a few final details to add. You’ll also be able to add some details of your own in this step if you would like to!
First, you can add a row of sharp teeth into the mouth, as shown in the reference image. Then, you can use a rounded line for the tongue behind these teeth.
The rest of the detailing will be primarily to make the head look even furrier.
You can achieve this effect by adding some more curved and sharp lines throughout the head and ears.
You can follow the way we have done it in the guide, but you can also change it up a bit if you would like!
Once you have finished these details, you are ready to move on to the next steps! Before you do, you can add your own details and elements first.
These could include drawing a body for the furry head or creating a background. These are just two of many ideas that you could try, so what else can you think of to finish off this image?
Step 6 – Finish off your furry head drawing with some color
We have reached the final step of your furry head drawing, and now you get to take over and have some fun bringing some amazing colors to your drawing!
In our reference image, we used some grey, brown, pink and a few other colors to color it in. This is just one way that you could go about it, however, and you should feel to use any colors that you love!
Furry characters can come in all manner of different colors and designs, so that gives you a lot of freedom for how you can color it in.
Once you know which colors you would like, there’s also the matter of choosing which art mediums you will use to bring them to life! We can’t wait to see what you choose to finish off your drawing.
