Step 6: Draw two short lines that connect the head to the body and form the guide for the neck. Connect the circles in the middle using two more curved lines to finish the guide for the torso. On the top, left side of the body, draw a line that curves downward as a guide for the mountain goat's tail.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.
Step 7: Near the middle of the head, lightly sketch a small oval for the eye. When you get the size and position right, darken the oval but make the sides a bit pointier. Inside the eye, off to the side, draw a tiny circle for a highlight. In the middle, draw an oval and shade it in for the pupil. Shade in the rest of the mountain goat's eye using a value that's lighter than the pupil. Don't overlap the highlight circle. Add a couple of curved lines above and below the eye for eyelids. To the right of the goat's eye, draw a series of short strokes for fur.
Step 8: Inside the muzzle, near the bottom, lightly sketch a small, rectangular shape for the mountain goat's nose. When you get the size and position right, darken the lower half but make the corners rounder the bottom pointier. Use tiny, short strokes to darken the top edge for the fur. Inside the nose, draw two short, curved lines for the nostrils.
Step 9: Under the nose, draw a line that curves to the left for the first half of the mouth. Don't make this line too long. To the right draw a shorter curved line for the other half of the mouth. Curve this line up toward the nose for the front part of the mountain goat's muzzle. Follow the basic edge of the initial arc to draw the top part of the muzzle. Draw a series of short strokes along the curvature of the initial arc to create the goat's furry chin.
