Step 6: Draw two big circles to the right side of the head as guides for the wildebeest's body. The first circle should be placed with the left portion lightly behind the head, so make sure the lines don't overlap. The second circle should be smaller. Don't place the circles too far apart, otherwise the body will be too long.
Step 7: Draw four lines under the wildebeest's body (two under each circle) as guides for the legs. Bend the lines to indicate where the joints will be. The lines on the right side should bend more.
Step 8: Draw two lines that connect the circles to form the rest of the body. Add a long line on the right side as a guide for the wildebeest's tail.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 9: Draw the eyes inside the wildebeest's head using the lines as guides for placement. First lightly sketch two circles. Then darken the lines into a shape similar to a little football. Shade the inside of the eyes using a dark value. Add a few lines around the eyes for extra detail.
