Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Ring-Tailed Lemur" 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 lemur's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The hind part of the lemur is bigger than the front, so draw this circle a little higher and a bit bigger. The edges of the two circles should graze each other slightly.
Step 2: Draw another circle about half the size of the first circle on the upper left side as a guide for the lemur's head. This circle should also be placed right next to the first one so their edges are touching.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting curved lines inside the lemur's head as guide lines to help you place the facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a small circle on the lower part of the lemur's head as a guide for drawing the muzzle.
Step 5: Draw two small arcs on top of the head as guides for the lemur's ears.
