Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Cheetah" 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 cheetah's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The second circle should be a bit smaller than the first.
Step 2: Draw an even smaller circle above and to the right of the first as a guide for the cheetah's head.
Step 3: Draw an arched line to the right of the head as a guide for the muzzle and another inside the head for the cheetah's ear.
Step 4: Using a series of curved lines, connect the major shapes to form the cheetah's body.
Step 5: Draw four angled lines below the body as guides for the cheetah's legs.
