Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Puffin" 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 top part of the puffin's body. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the top right for the puffin's head and on the left for the tail.
Step 2: Draw an arc on the lower left side of the circle to finish up the guide for the puffin's body. The end result should be a shape similar to an egg.
Step 3: Draw another circle above the body as a guide for the puffin's head. The circle should be about one-third the size of the first one.
Step 4: Draw a triangle-like shape on the right side of the head as a guide for the puffin's beak.
Step 5: Draw a couple of lines that connect the puffin's head and body to form the neck, and draw another triangle-like shape for the bird's tail.
