Step 10: Use the small arc on the capybara's head as a guide to draw the ears. Bend the shape of the ear a bit as you darken the lines. Add a few quick, short strokes inside the ear for fur. Draw a curved line on the left for the tip of the ear on the other side.
Step 11: Use the original circle as a guide to draw the rest of the capybara's head. Draw the head using quick, short strokes as you follow the basic path of the circle.
Step 12: Use the line on the left as a guide to draw the capybara's front legs and feet. Lightly sketch the shape of the first leg as you follow the path of the line. When you get the structure of the leg right, darken the lines. Capybaras have four toes in front, but only draw the visible three using a series of curved lines. Draw the nails at the tips. Draw the foot on the other side using the same technique. Most of it is hiding behind the first leg, so only draw the front portion.
Step 13: Use the line on the right as a guide to draw the capybara's hind legs the same way. Remember to sketch lightly as you follow the path of the guide and only darken the lines when you have the structure right. The top part of the hind legs is thicker and gets thinner toward the bottom. Use quick, short strokes to represent the fur. Capybaras have three toes on their hind legs. Draw them using a series of curved lines and draw the nails at the tips. Draw the hind leg on the other side as well. Only draw the front part of it because most of it is behind the first leg.
Step 14: Use the remaining lines as guides to draw the rest of the capybara's body.
