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 left side of the paper as a guide for the first part of the sperm whale's head. 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 right, draw another circle using the four-marks method. This circle should be a little smaller than the first one. Place it a bit higher than the first one too. Don't place the circles too close together. The farther to the right you draw this circle, the longer the sperm whale's body will be.
Step 3: On the far left side, make a small mark to start the guide for the front of the sperm whale's head. Connect the mark to the top part of the first circle using a curved line. The left side of the guide should be flat. Connect the mark to the bottom edge of the first circle too. The overall shape of this guide should be similar to the letter U on its side.
Step 4: Connect the circles using two horizontal lines to complete the guide for the sperm whale's torso.
Step 5: On the right side, draw two long lines that curve downward as guides for the back of the sperm whale's body. The left side of this guide should be wide and then gradually get narrower until it ends at a pointy tip on the right. You can make the lines longer if you'd like. The longer you draw the lines, the longer the whale's body will be.
