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 honey badger's body. First draw four small marks for the height and width of the circle, then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. But don't worry if the circles aren't perfect. They're just guides. If you do want perfect circles, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge. The circle on the right should be a bit bigger and placed lower than the one on the left. Don't place them too close together either.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the left side as a guide for the honey badger's head. This circle should be about half the size of the first one and placed a bit lower. Their edges should almost touch.
Step 3: Draw a curved line inside the head, near the middle, to help you place the honey badger's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a small circle on the lower left side of the head as a guide for the honey badger's muzzle. This circle should be about one-fourth the size of the head. The lower left side should stick out of the head.
Step 5: Draw four lines under the body (two below each circle) as guides for the honey badger's legs. Bend the lines to indicate where the joints will be. The badger is stepping forward, so the line on the left should point down. The hind legs are short, so draw the guide lines shorter too. The guide line for the leg on the other side will be hidden from the body, so draw the line even smaller.
