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 yak's body. To draw the circle, first make four marks to determine its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a cup or a lid. 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 body. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle as well. Make this circle slightly smaller than the first one. The edges of the circles should touch. If you draw them far apart, your yak's body will be too long.
Step 3: To the right, draw yet another circle as a guide for the yak's head. Make this circle small. It should be about one-fourth the size of the first circle. The sides of the circles should touch, and the top edges should almost line up.
Step 4: Below the head, make a small mark for the first part of the guide for the muzzle. Connect the mark to the sides of the head to complete the U-shaped guide for the yak's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw a long, vertical line across the entire head as a guide to help you place the yak's facial features later. Draw a horizontal line across the middle of the top circle for another construction guide.
