Christmas is nearing!
And I love anything related to Christmas – it’s my favorite holiday.
This year, I thought I’d add multiple Christmas kawaii drawing tutorials.
All of these Christmas drawing ideas are for beginners and kids and they’re all step-by-step.
But in this tutorial, I’ll teach you how to draw a Christmas guinea pig inside a Christmas wreath. Here’s what you’ll learn:
But you can use any tool – a pen and paper or colored pencils or Copic markers or Photoshop because the drawing method remains the same.
How to draw a Christmas Guinea Pig – Step by step for beginners and kids
We are going to be using straightforward shapes for this drawing tutorial.
Let’s begin by drawing 2 concentric circles.
We will erase this later – this is a rough sketch for the wreath.
Next, we’ll draw the top of the guinea pig’s head. We will draw a simple curve first.
Next, draw 2 ears on the sides of the guinea pig.
Now, we’ll draw the insides of the ears, I’m going to draw 2 small lines inside the ears of the guinea pig.
Then, we’ll draw the bottom of the guinea pig’s face – we are going to draw a huge bell-shaped curve like this:
Make sure the curve overlaps the bottom of the inner rough circle we’ve drawn.
Next, draw 2 eyes and a small nose on the guinea pig’s face.
And we’ve finished drawing the guinea pig’s face.
Next, we’ll draw the paws of the guinea pig. Draw 2 small paws and draw lines inside the paws.
We can erase the overlapping line of the face (because the paws are in front of the face) and now, let’s start drawing the inner portion of the wreath.
I’m going to draw small “U” shapes along the inner circle.
Let’s draw a bow on the wreath. We are going to draw a large simple bow.
And then we’ll finish the bow off by drawing 2 extensions of the ribbon below the bow like this:
Now, we’ll draw the outside of the Christmas wreath by drawing more “U” shapes along the outer circle. Once you finish drawing the wreath, you can erase the rough circles we drew earlier.
Lastly, finish the wreath by drawing little circles of different sizes in the wreath.
We have ourselves a cute guinea pig in a wreath.
Next, color the guinea pig any color you want. I already have a post here on how to draw a guinea pig.
You can use that for inspiration or you can add colors like white, cream, sand brown and chocolate brown.
Next, I’ll color the ears and add blush on his cheeks just to make him look super kawaii.
And finally, color the wreath. You can color the wreath any color you want but I’m going to use Christmasey colors like green and red.
You’ve learned how to draw a Christmas guinea pig.
