Please PAUSE the "How to Draw an Giraffe" 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 giraffe's body. The first circle should be a little longer, like an oval. The second circle should be smaller, and the top part should be about where the half point of the oval is. The shapes don't have to be perfect; they're just guides. Instead, pay closer attention to their placement.
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle on the top right side as a guide for the giraffe's head. The higher the circle, the longer the neck will be.
Step 3: Draw an arc on the right side of the giraffe's head as a guide for the muzzle.
Step 4: Draw an angled line similar to an upside-down letter V on top of the head as a guide for the giraffe's ear.
Step 5: Draw a series of curved lines to connect the major shapes and form the giraffe's long neck and body.
