Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Narwhal" 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 narwhal's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Narwhals' bodies are pretty long, so don't draw the circles too close to each other. The circle on the right should also be smaller.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the left side as a guide for the narwhal's head. This circle should be small too. Don't place it too far away from the big circle.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head to help you place the narwhal's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a long line on the left side of the head as a guide for the narwhal's tusk. The length of this line will determine the length of the tusk, so draw yours as long or as short as you'd like.
Step 5: Draw a series of lines that connect the major shapes to form the rest of the narwhal's body. Draw two short lines on the left for the neck and two longer lines on the right for the body.
