Please PAUSE the "How to Draw an Armadillo" 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 armadillo's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circles should be about the same size. The circle on the right should be placed slightly higher. Don't place the circles too far apart, otherwise your armadillo will be too long. Leave enough room on the sides for the head and tail.
Step 2: Use two curved lines to connect the circles and complete the guide for the armadillo's body.
Step 3: Draw an arc on the left side of the body as a guide for the armadillo's head.
Step 4: Draw a small, thinner arc to the left of the head as a guide for the armadillo's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw another small, thin arc on top of the head as a guide for the armadillo's ears.
