Please PAUSE the "How to Draw an Ostrich" 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 an oval as a guide for the ostrich's body. The oval should be slightly tilted. Don't worry if it's not perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle on the top right side as a guide for the ostrich's head.
Step 3: Draw an arc next to the head as a guide for the ostrich's beak.
Step 4: Draw a curved line that connects the ostrich's head to the body as a guide for the long neck.
Step 5: Draw a short, curved line on the left side as a guide for the ostrich's tail.
