Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Wildebeest" 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 left side as a guide for the top part of the wildebeest's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. Leave enough room on the right 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 wildebeest's head.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head to help you place the wildebeest's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw two smaller U-shaped arcs on either side of the wildebeest's head, close to the top, as guides for the ears.
Step 5: Draw two wavy lines on top of the wildebeest's head, between the ears, as guides for the horns.
