Aww I'm sorry about your ferret.

I wouldn't personally suggest looking at a manga for advice on learning to draw an animal because the manga style is just so stylised. Probably best to look at ref of real ferrets to elarn and than check out how they are stylised.

Only think that really stands out to me is how the front leg comes out of the body.

Here's some links from yahoo image search that show front legs-

I couldn't find anything exactly in a sort of over head but you get some idea of the shoulder there.

Here I tried a redline but I really don't know alot about ferrets and mustilides. So I'm not sure exactly how they work.


One thing I did notice while redlining is thet your etes don't really follow the plane of the face. You might want to invert your curve. If you're going for like an anime kind of closed eye what you have is fine and dandy but if you want something more real you might want to make it look more like it fits the slope of the face.

Lovely pic though. Are you going to colour it?

This is what I'd do; I've outlined the rest of the picture as well. I'm not very good at ferret anatomy, but this would be my guess.

I too have ferrets (3), terribly sorry about yours. Anyway, I redlined it to give it a more "squishy" look, and a teensy bit shorter.

That's so sad. My ferret died several years ago too.

I've always wanted a ferrit. Sadly they got banned from my country when I was 7 :(
