How to Draw a Skunk

If you give a real life skunk a kind of cartoon makeover, you might end up with one that looks like this. A cute and cuddly look has been added, but the important tell-tale black and white stripes are still there. Side views let you see as much of them as possible.

As a side note, this is another one of those times when you need to encourage students to color well, and with as much pressure as they can. A scribbly gray skunk is not nearly as eye-catching as a dramatically black and white one is.
