Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Serval" 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 serval's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circles should be about the same size. The circle on the left should be placed a little lower than the one on the right. Servals are tall and long, so don't place the circles too close together.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the top right side as a guide for the serval's head. This circle should be about half the size of the first two. Don't place it too high up, otherwise the neck will be too long.
Step 3: Draw two curved, intersecting lines inside the head to help you draw the serval's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a circle on the lower half of the head as a guide for the serval's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw two small arcs on top of the serval's head as guides for the ears.
