wikiHow to Draw a Ferret

Do you have a pet ferret? Have you ever wanted to draw one? Here are some easy steps to show you how!


  1. Image titled Circle Step 1 1
    Draw a circle for the head. Add guidelines for the facial features.
  2. Image titled Face Step 2 3
    Add two small circles for the eyes and a small square for the nose. Use an inverted Y for the mouth, curling down from the ferret’s nose (which should be about twice the size of an eye).
  3. Image titled Ears Step 3
    Add two small triangles for the ears. Round them at the edges for more anatomical accuracy.
  4. Image titled Body Step 4 1
    Add a small circle for the upper body and a large oval for the lower body. The upper body should overlap the head almost entirely for now. (The resulting angle will make the ferret look as though it’s turned towards you.)
  5. Image titled Leggs Step 5
    Add two small ovals for the front legs and three ovals, a large one and two small ones for the back legs. Draw flat ovals for the paws, making sure everything stays connected.
  6. Image titled Tail Step 6 1
    Draw a short tail for the ferret. It should look like what’s shown, falling in a smooth line and curving slightly where it hits the ground.
  7. Image titled Outline Step 7 3
    Outline the image. Draw some fur and whiskers. Erase the guidelines.
  8. Image titled Color Step 8 4
    Now color it in. This ferret has the same color scheme as a skunk, which is realistic, but don’t be limited by anything.


  • Draw lightly in pencil so that you can easily rub out mistakes.
  • The ears should be small and rounded
