Step 1: Draw a small circle as a guide for the koala's head. The circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide.
Step 2: Draw an oval underneath that's just about twice as tall as the koala's head. This will be a guide for the body. Give the oval a slight tilt so the koala's body won't be too rigid.
Step 3: Draw a few construction lines inside the shapes to help you place the koala's features later on. First, draw a long vertical line that splits both shapes in two. Then draw a horizontal line inside each that splits the shapes into quarters.
Step 4: Draw a curved line similar to the letter C on either side of the koala's head as guides for the ears.
Step 5: Draw a couple of angled lines inside the body as guides for the koala's arms and legs.
