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 top of the page as a guide for the abominable snowman or yeti's head. To draw the circle, first make four 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 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: Draw a long, curved, horizontal line across the circle as a guide to help you place the abominable snowman's facial features later. Add a curved, vertical line on the top, left for another guide.
Step 3: Below the head, draw a big, oval-like shape as a guide for the abominable snowman's chest using the four-marks method. Make some marks to determine the width and height of the circle. The top mark will be hidden behind the head. Connect the marks using curved lines. The bigger this shape is, the bigger the yeti will be.
Step 4: Below the oval, draw two vertical lines on the sides as the guide for the yeti's lower torso. At the bottom, draw a V-shaped line to close off the shape of the guide.
Step 5: To the right of the torso, draw a small arc as the guide for the abominable snowman's hand. Draw a line at the bottom to create a half-circle shape as the guide for the hand. Below the half-circle, draw an arc similar to the letter U as a guide for the forearm. At the top, draw a couple of short, curved lines as guides for the rest of the arm.
