You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
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: Start by lightly sketching a small circle for the killer whale's eyeball. The bigger you draw the circle, the bigger the eye will be. When you get the shape right, darken the line. Draw a line around the top of the circle for the orca's outer eye. The line should wrap around the circle. Don't draw it too far away. Make the line thicker to represent eyelashes. The tips should be thin and pointy. The resulting shape of the outer eye should be similar to the letter C on top of the eyeball.
Step 2: Inside the eyeball, on the top and bottom, draw two tiny circles for highlights. In the middle of the eyeball, draw a small circle for the killer whale's pupil but don't overlap the highlight circles.
Step 3: On the lower, right side of the eye, lightly sketch a curved line that's similar to the letter U for the orca's mouth. Pay attention to the size and position of this line in relation to the eye. When you get it right, darken it.
Step 4: Starting at the top of the whale's mouth, lightly sketch a line that curves up and to the left for the head. The head should be big. Pay attention to how high above the eye the top of the line is. The front part of the head should be pretty flat. When you get the shape right, darken the line. Under the mouth, draw a line that curves to the left for the bottom part of the killer whale's body. Pay attention to the length of these lines. Don't draw them too far to the left.
Step 5: On the bottom of the body, lightly sketch a curved line for the first pectoral flipper. The shape should be similar to a tilted oval or a round triangle. When you get the shape right, darken the line. To the right of the orca, draw a small, curved line for the flipper on the other side of the body.
Step 6: On top of the body, draw a rounded, triangle-like shape for the orca's dorsal fin. Don't draw the fin too big. Sketch lightly at first and only darken the line when you get the shape right.
