You have 3 new shapes

Step 3

Draw the 2 feet and try to imagine how the second foot looks like because one cannot see it globally

tutorial

You have 2 new shapes

Step 4

Add a new group
Draw the tail and focus only on a contour what is not transparent
The fact that we created a new group is useful. Like this, the tail will Not merge with the Squirrel body.
You have 1 new shape in 1 new group

Step 5

Most of the shapes are modeled now and we now have to define the correct settings

For that, press [X] to change the view point

Start by selecting the body and only update the [Z scale] using the pink icon in the control circle
Also adapt the size of the head using [Z scale] Translate the two ears [Z translates].

Translate the arm and put it in front with [Z translate]
Select a [Mirror] on [Z]
Turn around the squirrel
Put a value like -0.25 with [Y swivel]
Adapt again by translating the shape on Z ([Z translate])

Step 6

Translate the 2 feet ([Z translate])
Add a [Mirror] on [Z] to the arm
Adapt the [Z Scale] and [Z translation] and [Y swivel] (for me respectively 0.56 and 0.13 and 0.43 went well).

tutorial

Add a new group
Press Z key
Draw a nut (try to imagine it as we cannot see it)
Add a new Group
Draw the rock
You have 2 news shapes in 2 new groups.
Press [Merge] (low quality is fine).
