Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Guinea Pig" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the guinea pig's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the right side for the body.
Step 2: Draw a curved line on the left side of the circle as a guide for the guinea pig's muzzle.
Step 3: Draw a curved line similar to a backward letter C inside the circle on the top right side as a guide for the guinea pig's ear.
Step 4: Draw a bigger circle on the right side of the guinea pig's head as a guide for the back portion of the body. This circle should be bigger and placed lower than the first circle. Don't worry too much about it being perfect. But don't place the circle too far away, otherwise your guinea pig will be too long.
Step 5: Draw two lines that connect the two circles to complete the guide for the guinea pig's body.
