Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Donkey" 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 two circles as guides for the donkey's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circle on the right should be a bit smaller and should be placed a bit higher. Don't place them too far apart, otherwise you'll end up with a long donkey. Leave enough room on the left side to draw the head.
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle (about one-third the size of the first circle) on the left side as a guide for the donkey's head. Don't place this circle too far away either, or your donkey's neck will be too long.
Step 3: Draw a U-shaped arc on the lower, left side of the head as a guide for the donkey's muzzle.
Step 4: Draw a smaller, thinner arc on top of the donkey's head as a guide for the ears.
Step 5: Draw a series of lines that connect the major shapes to form the body. Make the bottom line curvier for the donkey's belly.
