Here’s one way to draw a camel, and his very unusual body. Follow this step by step tutorial to make him look like he’s walking across the desert.
Do you know what makes a camel look like a camel? Aside from the hump?
I say it’s all in the droopy mouth, flat eyes, and knobby knees. All these features are made from curves, some large and some small, so look closely and try to make your lines light the first time around. That will save you lots of aggravation if you need to tweak some of them before tracing.
