You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next.

Below you can watch a Narrated 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 drawing a circle as a guide for the front part of the markhor'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 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 right, draw another circle the same way as a guide for the back portion of the markhor's body. This circle should be a little bit smaller than the first circle. The edges of the two circles should touch.
Step 3: On the top, left side, draw yet another circle as a guide for the markhor's head. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too. This circle should be about one-fifth the size of the first circle. Don't place this circle too far away from the body, otherwise the neck will be too long.
Step 4: Draw a curved, horizontal line across the head as a construction guide to help you place the markhor's facial features later. Draw a short, curved, vertical line on the top, left side for another guide. On the lower, left side of the head, draw a curved line that's similar in shape to a tilted letter V as a guide for the muzzle.
Step 5: On top of the head, draw two long, straight lines as guides for the markhor's horns. Pay attention to how long these lines are in relation to the head. The longer you draw these lines, the bigger the horns will be. The line on the right should tilt more than the line on the left. Draw a couple of small arcs on the sides of the head as guides for the ears.
