Below you can watch a NEW step-by-step video tutorial with NARRATED steps:
The following is a video tutorial where the steps are WRITTEN out within the video:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the sloth's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Pay attention to the placement of the circles. They're close together, and the one on the left should be slightly higher and smaller than the one on the right.
Step 2: Draw a smaller circle on the upper right side as a guide for the sloth's head.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting, curved lines inside the sloth's head to help you place the facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw four lines on top of the body (two above each circle) as guides for the sloth's arms and legs. The lines should be on top because the sloth will be hanging upside-down.
Step 5: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the sloth's body.
