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 near the bottom of the paper as guides for the first part of the pegasus' body. First draw four small marks for the height and width of the circle, then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. But the circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. If you do want a perfect circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge. Place the circle on the right a bit lower than the one on the left. They shouldn't be too far apart. Leave enough room at the top for the pegasus' wings.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the top, left side as a guide for the pegasus' head. This circle should be about one- fourth the size of the first one. Don't draw this circle too far away, otherwise the pegasus' neck will be too long.
Step 3: Draw a U-shaped arc under the head as a guide for the pegasus' muzzle.
Step 4: Draw two small triangle-like shapes that are similar to the letter M on top of the head as guides for the pegasus' ears.
Step 5: Draw two curved lines that connect the head to the body to create the guide for the neck. Draw two more lines that connect the first two circles to create the guide for the rest of the pegasus' body.
