The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a big circle near the middle of the paper as a guide for the front part of the rhinoceros' body. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a glass, a lid or any other object with a circular edge. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: To the left, draw another circle as a guide for the back portion of the rhino's body. Draw this circle using the four- marks method too. The circles should be around the same size. Don't draw the circles too far apart, otherwise your rhinoceros will be too long.
Step 3: On the right side, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the rhino's head. This circle should be about one- third the size of the first circle, and the edges should be touching.
Step 4: On the right side of the head, draw a small arc as a guide for the muzzle. Pay attention to the size of this arc in relation to the circle for the rhino's head.
Step 5: Draw a series of lines that connect the circles and form the shape of the body. The line that connects the big circles at the bottom should curve to create the belly. The line on the top, right side should also curve to finish the shape of the rhino's big head.
