Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Coyote" 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 coyote's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circles should be around the same size. Don't draw them too far apart, otherwise your coyote will end up too long. Leave enough room on the sides too for the head and tail.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the top left side as a guide for the coyote's head. This circle should be about half the size of the first one and their edges should almost touch.
Step 3: Draw two curved, intersecting lines inside the head to help you draw the coyote's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a small arc on the outside of the circle on the lower left side as a guide for the coyote's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw two small triangle-shaped arcs on top of the head as guides for the coyote's ears.
