Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Dove" 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 dove's body. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw an arc on the lower left side of the circle as a guide for the lower part of the dove's body so that the resulting shape is similar to an egg.
Step 3: Draw a smaller circle on the top right side of the dove's body as a guide for the head. The size of the head should be about one-fourth the size of the first circle.
Step 4: Draw a small triangle-like shape on the right side of the head as a guide for the dove's beak.
Step 5: Draw a couple of lines that connect the dove's head to the body to form the neck.
