The final shape should be similar to a football. Draw a small line at the bottom for a wrinkle. Add a few short strokes above the saiga antelope's eye for fur. Inside the eye , draw a tiny circle to represent glare.

The top part of the brow should be very close to the guide for the horn on the left.

Step 12: Use the arc on the lower, right side as a guide to draw the first part of the saiga antelope's muzzle. Follow the basic path of the arc to draw the muzzle but make the line wavier as you darken it. Before getting to the bottom of the arc, curve the line upward to create the mouth. Add a curved line at the top to emphasize the wrinkles on the droopy muzzle. Some saigas have noses that droop down more than others.

Darken the line on the left to emphasize the mouth under the nose. Add a line under the mouth to finish the muzzle. Draw some strokes within the shape for the fur. These short strokes also help emphasize the structure of the muzzle.
