Today, we’re going to draw a possum. I dislike possums. I once said that I won’t consider possums proper beasts until they put their skulls back inside their skin where they belong. How on earth can you make this cute?
Well, I said the same thing about crabs, and I managed to make one of those cute:
So, we can do the same for the disgusting, rabies spitting, dog taunting possum. This will be a challenge.
First, our hopelessly cute possum needs a body, which will end up looking much like a lump of coal or a deformed bean. Most animals I draw start off as deformed beans:
They have claws. As if they aren’t creepy enough already, possums have spindly finger-like claws. Let’s draw some claws. From that picture, it looks like they have four on each foot. That’s all I’m drawing since I don’t want to get any closer to them.
Now, it needs a tail. They have rat-like tails. I like rats much better than possums. Anyway, rat tail coming up.
Much better. Now what? The creepy possum head. I’m going to make the cutest possum head possible without actually taking a close look at a possum head, because who wants to closely inspect a possum head? Not me, that’s who.
It’s got a heart on its head! Take that possums of the world! You have heart heads!
I suppose it needs a nose and some beady little eyes, too.
Maybe possums aren’t so bad after all. At least, this one isn’t.
