Here’s an easy way to learn how to draw a prairie dog, which is pretty much a cousin of the squirrel that might be found in your back yard. Their heads look a lot alike, that’s for sure.

This step by step tutorial shows how to draw a pose that is called a three quarter view. It’s when someone or something is turned just a bit to one side. Many portraits are drawn that way, so I guess you could say this is one way to draw a portrait of a prairie dog!

For the best results, point out to your students that these animals, much like squirrels, have a lighter colored belly. A good plan to create that is to have them color harder on the right side of the body, to get a darker shade of their brown color.
