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 Holland Lop bunny's body. First draw four marks for the height and width of the circle, then connect the marks using curved lines. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. If you do want a perfect circle, trace the outer rim of a glass, a plate or anything else that's circular.
Step 2: Draw a horizontal line inside the circle as a construction line to help you place the bunny rabbit's facial features later on. The line should be a little higher than the middle. Curve it so that it contours to the shape of the circle.
Step 3: Draw a small oval on the lower, left side of the head as a guide for the muzzle. First draw four marks to indicate the height and width of the oval, then connect the marks with curved lines. Pay attention to the size of the oval in relation to the Holland Lop bunny's head. The left side of the oval should come out of the edge of the head.
Step 4: Draw two curved lines on either side of the head as guides for the bunny rabbit's floppy ears. The first line should look like the letter U. Place it right under the construction line, on the right side. The line on the left should be similar to a letter U but with a portion of it being blocked by the head.
Step 5: Draw another circle on the lower, right side of the head as a guide for the back portion of the body. This circle should be almost twice as big as the Holland Lop bunny's head. The top, left side of it should be behind the head. Don't worry too much about drawing a perfect circle. But if you do want a perfect circle, just trace the edge of a bowl or plate.
