To draw this Mule step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
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 right side of the paper as a guide for the front part of the mule's body. To draw the circle, first make four small marks to determine its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a lid. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: To the left, draw another circle as a guide for the back portion of the mule's body. Draw this circle using the four-marks method as well. This circle should be a bit smaller than the first one. Don't space the circles too far apart, otherwise your mule will be too long.
Step 3: On the top, right side, draw yet another circle as a guide for the mule's head. This circle should be a little over half the size of the first one. Don't place the circle too high up!
Step 4: Draw an arc on the lower, right side of the head as a guide for the mule's muzzle. The base of the arc should be pretty wide, and the whole shape should slope down a bit.
Step 5: On top of the head, draw two thin, tall arcs as guides for the ears. Mules have long ears, like donkeys, so don't make these arcs too small like horses' ears.
