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 circle near the right side of the paper as a guide for the front part of the beluga whale's body. To draw the circle, make four marks to determine height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a coin 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 the same way as a guide for the back portion of the body. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too. The two circles should be similar in size. Space the circles apart. If you draw them too close together, the beluga whale's body will be too short.
Step 3: To the right of the first circle, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the beluga whale's head. Place this circle closer to the first circle. This circle should be about one-third the size of the first circle.
Step 4: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the circles to form the rest of the guide for the body. Connect the circles on the right using short, wavy lines to complete the front part of the beluga whale's body. Use longer curved lines to connect the circles in the middle and finish the guide for the torso.
Step 5: To the left, draw two long lines that come to a point as a guide for the tail portion of the body. Pay attention to the length of these lines in relation to the rest of the beluga whale's body. Don't draw them too long.
