For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: Start by drawing circle as a guide for the snowshoe hare's head. 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 bottle cap. 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: Inside the head, draw a diagonal line as a construction guide to help you place the hare's facial features later on. On the lower, right side of the head, draw an angled line as a guide for the muzzle. Pay attention to the size of the muzzle in relation to the head. The right side of the muzzle should be flat.
Step 3: On top of the head, draw two tall arcs as guides for the rabbit's ears. The ear on the left should partially block the ear on the right. The ears should be pretty big in relation to the head.
Step 4: Under the head, slightly to the left side, draw a bigger circle as a guide for the top part of the snowshoe hare's body. Use the four marks method to draw this circle too. This circle should be about twice the size of the head circle. On the lower, left side, draw another circle as a guide for the bottom half of the body. The size of this circle should be between the size of the head circle and the top body circle.
Step 5: Connect the circles using curved lines to complete the guide for the hare's body. The lines at the top should be short to create the guide for the neck. The lines at the bottom should be longer and more curved.
