A few weeks ago I painted a guinea pig just for fun. But I really wanted to sketch in hand, everyone can break through. In the case of a guinea pig, it is actually quite simple because of the simple forms.

I drew my head as a slightly oval circle. In the come the cuddly eyes and the nose as a triangle. In the middle I painted a line like a portrait, so that the nose does not slide to the left or right. Around the head now comes a large oval for the torso, to which I connect the legs and the ear with rectangles.

The primer was created with panpastel, medium tones first. Then the subtleties with the pastel pencils come up by brushing. Then a few shadows are improved with darker colors and that's it 🙂

Of course, the whole thing is again available as a video to watch in the form of a 15 minute demonstration.
