Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Cow" 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 two circles as guides for the cow's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circles should be right next to each other, and the circle on the right should be a bit smaller than the one on the left.
Step 2: Draw a very small circle (about the quarter the size of the first) on the upper left side as a guide for the cow's head.
Step 3: Draw two lines across the head to help you place the facial features later on. The vertical line should extend outside the circle a bit.
Step 4: Use the extended line as a guide to draw a U-shaped curve under the head as a guide for the cow's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw a sideways arc on either side of the head as a guide for the ears.
