For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle near the top of the paper as a guide for the fox's head. First draw four small marks to indicate 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 mistake. But the circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. If you're having a hard time drawing the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a button or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw a curved horizontal line across the head. This construction line will help you place the fox's facial features later. Add a curved vertical line on the top left side of the head for another construction line.
Step 3: Draw a small circle on the lower left side of the head as a guide for the fox's muzzle. Pay attention to the size and placement of this small circle in relation to the rest of the head.
Step 4: On top of the head, draw two small, triangle- like shapes as guides for the ears. Foxes have big ears, so don't draw these guides too small.
Step 5: Under the head, off to the left a bit, draw a big circle as a guide for the top part of the body. Like with the head, use small marks to draw the circle. This circle should be almost twice as big as the fox's head.
