For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a big circle as a guide for the rabbit's head. First make four small marks to indicate its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make mistake. If you're struggling drawing the circle, trace the outer rim of a glass, a bowl or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw a curved line across the circle to help you place the rabbit's facial features later. Make the line slope a bit and place it a bit higher than the middle of the circle.
Step 3: Add the guide for the muzzle by first making a small mark on the left side of the head. Then connect the mark to the head using curved lines to create an arc. Pay attention to the size of the arc in relation to the rest of the rabbit's head.
Step 4: High above the head, off to the right side, make a small mark to start the guide for the ear. Now connect the mark to the head using sloping, curved lines to form a thin, long arc. The longer and wider you make this arc, the bigger your rabbit's ears will be.
Step 5: To the left, draw another arc the same way as a guide for the other rabbit's ear. This ear will be behind the first, so don't overlap the arcs at the bottom.
