Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Walrus" 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 walrus's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Walruses are big and top-heavy, so make the first circle really big but leave enough room on the sides for the rest of the body. The circle on the left should be about half the size of the first and should be placed lower. The edges of the circles should touch.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the top right side as a guide for the head. This circle should be even smaller than the second one. The edges of the circles should touch.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head to help you draw the walrus's facial features later on. Curve the lines so that they contour to the shape of the circle.
Step 4: Draw two circles on the lower half of the head as a guide for the walrus's muzzle. These circles should be small and should be placed on either side of the vertical guide line.
Step 5: Draw two long lines under each of the walrus's muzzle circles as guides for the tusks.
