Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Penguin" video after each step to draw at your own pace
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 oval as a guide for the penguin's body. It doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw another oval above and to the right of the first oval as a guide for the penguin's head. This oval should be smaller and have a horizontal orientation.
Step 3: Inside the penguin's head, draw two intersecting lines. These are guides that will help you place the facial features later.
Step 4: On the right side of the penguin's head, draw a triangle minus the base as a guide for the beak.
Step 5: Using two curved lines, connect the two ovals and form the penguin's neck.
