Remember that show that aired on TV called “The Muppet Show”? Well there was a character that didn’t say too much but he was getting increasingly popular with pop culture. Today this red haired puppet is seen printed on shirts, posters, stickers, and even magnets. Of course I will tell you who it is that I am talking about, and who it is your going to get a lesson on. I will be showing you “how to draw Animal from the Muppets step by step”. There really isn’t too much information on Animal except he is the drummer and belongs to a band named “Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem”. His speech is very muffled and sounds more like a series of shouting words that is only understood by Animal and Kermit. There is however a few words that he will say sometimes like “beat drums!” and “wo-man!”. I think he is an epic character from the show and over the years he has become what you call a wild animal. I have a shirt that has him on the front and it reads “born to be wild”. He has three tones of music that you her the most coming from his drum set; loud, louder, and loudest which usually means your hearing is pretty much damaged permanently. The voice and puppet talent for Animal came from the very popular Frank Oz. He stated that the character of Animal was categorized in three words; sex, food, drums, sleep, and pain. I don’t watch the Muppet Show now, but my mother used to put it on for me when I was like six years old. I think you guys will like this lesson on “how to draw Animal from The Muppets step by step”. I have to leave once again but there is still two more tutorials coming your way. I used a reference picture to draw Animal out and I made sure that I chose the most active pose I could find on him. Okay gang, peace out and happy drawing!
