Please PAUSE the "How to Draw an African Cape Buffalo" 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 small circle on the right side for the African cape buffalo's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the left side for the rest of the body.
Step 2: Draw a U-shaped arc under the circle as a guide for the lower part of the African cape buffalo's head.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head to help you place the African cape buffalo's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw two small U-shaped arcs on either side of the head, close to the middle, as guides for the African cape buffalo's ears.
Step 5: Draw two C-shaped arcs on either side of the head, near the top, as guides for the African cape buffalo's horns.
