Learn how to draw a lemur, with this step by step tutorial. Those big eyes and striped tail make such a cute and unusual looking animal.
Lemurs are native only to the island of Madagascar. Most are small, have a pointed snout, large eyes, a long tail, and chiefly live in trees. A very popular kids movie about Madagascar once featured a lot of these creatures too.
But no matter what brought you to them, I think they make for a great drawing project as all the features are recognizable, they just happen to be arranged in a unique way on this very cute animal.
