Step 10: Use the circle as a guide to draw the rest of the bison's head. Use quick, short strokes around the head all the way to the top of the nose to represent fur. The strokes at the bottom should dip below the circle to form a long, shaggy beard. Draw more quick, short strokes inside the head to represent fur on the bison's face.
Step 11: Using the lines as guides, draw the bison's hind legs. Draw lightly at first. When you like what you have, go ahead and darken it. Make the leg thicker on top and draw some bumps along the way to represent joints. Draw a couple of lines at the bottom for the hoof. Draw the leg on the other side the same way. Draw lightly at first to get the structure right, then darken it. Don't forget to draw the bison's hoof!
Step 12: Draw the bison's front legs using the initial lines as guides. The upper part of the leg is covered with a shaggy coat, so draw the top part thicker and use quick, short strokes to represent fur. Remember to draw lightly at first. Draw the bison's foot below the fur and draw the hoof. Draw only the visible portion of the other leg the same way.
Step 13: Use the initial lines as guides to draw the bison's body. Bison have a thick coat covering the front part of their bodies, so use quick, short strokes to represent this. The shaggy coat extends from the back down to the front legs.
Step 14: Using some lines, draw the tail on the left side of the bison's body.
