Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Duck" 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 front part of the duck's body. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw a long arc on the left side of the circle to finish up the guide for the duck's body. The end result so be a shape similar to an egg.
Step 3: Draw a small circle above the body on the right side as a guide for the duck's head.
Step 4: Inside the circle, draw two intersecting lines. These lines will help you place the duck's facial features later.
Step 5: Draw a small, thin arc on the right side of the head as a guide for the duck's beak.
