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 middle of the paper as a guide for the front part of the jackal's body. First make four marks to determine the circle's 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: To the left, draw a smaller circle the same way as a guide for the back part of the body. This circle should be about half the size of the first one. Don't draw them too far apart or the jackal's body will be too long.
Step 3: On the top, right side of the first circle, draw yet another circle as a guide for the jackal's head. This circle should be about the same size as the second circle. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too. The edges of this circle and the first circle should touch.
Step 4: Draw a horizontal line across the head to help you place the jackal's facial features later. Draw a shorter, vertical construction guide line on the top, right side.
Step 5: Draw a small circle on the lower, right side of the head as a guide for the jackal's muzzle. Pay attention to the size of this circle in relation to the head. Part of it should stick out of the head.
