Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Bison" 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 bison's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circle on the right will be a guide for the bison's big chest, so it should be a lot bigger than the circle on the left.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the right side as a guide for the bison's head. The circle should be about the same size as the circle on the left side. It should also overlap the big circle a tiny bit.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the bison's head to help you place the animal's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw four angled lines under the body (two below each circle) as guides for the bison's legs.
Step 5: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the bison's body.
