How to draw a cute little mouse character in Procreate

Let’s draw a cute little mouse, it’s not as hard as you think!

In this Procreate tutorial I’ll show you how to draw the little cutie mouse using one of the Character Drawing Toolkit shapes. Then we move onto adding colour and yummy texture in Procreate using the Instant Artist Collection! #letsdrawlisaglanz

Happy sketching!

    Amazing tutorial, start to finish brings it all together. For me a pdf to purchase with clothing ideas would finish the package. I cannot dress anyone, I have no vision. If you could provide a vision, that would be the learning block for then expanding on your ideas. Thanks for perhaps considering, for me would be huge. Look forward to next tut. Kate

      Hi Kate, glad you enjoyed the tutorial! I actually have that idea on my list of “product ideas”, I know many people struggle with that, myself included sometimes! Hopefully one day I can get to create it 🙂

    Loved this tutorial Lisa! I don’t have procreate but I sketched on paper, then took into PS to trace and add the color. I got so much out of this – especially the shadow tips. Thank you!!

    I love this! I’m brand new to Procreate but I’m very happy as to how my little mouse is turning out. However, my Dashes brush is much larger! How do I resize it to make small strokes like yours? I just bought it so I haven’t edited it or anything. Thanks!

      Yay! So glad you’re happy with your little mouse! You can change the size of the pattern grain on any of the pattern brushes to adjust it to your project needs. Here’s a tutorial on how to do that (it’s super easy): How to change the scale of a pattern brush

    Yeeeeesssss, I did it!
    It is wonderful. Great way too to get to know how to use the different brushes in the artist brush pack.
    I am very happy.

    Would also like to see a tutorial for the drawing kit with people (I now think I should have bought the character set and not the people set , my mistake lol)
    Thanks!

    Really appreciate your generosity posting this Lisa. I’m recipient of a new iPad Pro and Procreate and yet to ‘sharpen my pencil’. Love the tutorial and I feel I can give it a go. So many ideas running through my head, so little time. Just start!

    Hi Lisa! Thank you for sharing this one! I purchased the CDT… but I can’t find the organic head. Were there any updates to the latest product?

      Hi Marybelle,

      Thank you so much for your purchase! I’d be happy to assist you with that The head shape I used in the tutorial comes from the CDT Shapes brushes (so not found in the Heads) and the brush is called Organic 1. Hope that helps! If you have any other questions at all, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
