The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Draw a circle near the top of the paper as a guide for Donald Duck's head. 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.
Step 2: Inside the circle, draw a curved, horizontal line near the bottom as a guide to place Donald Duck's facial features. Draw a curved, vertical line near the left edge for another construction guide.
Step 3: On the lower, right side of the circle, draw a small, thin arc for the top part of Donald Duck's bill. The arc should be thin on the right side. Then the line should curve and end under the circle. At the bottom, draw a wider curved line for the lower part of the bill. The shape of this guide should be wide at the top and narrower at the bottom.
Step 4: On the top, right side of the head, draw an oval-like shape as a guide for the Donald Duck's hat. Make the top part wider.
Step 5: Below the head, draw a line that slopes to the left for the top part of the guide for the body. On the right side, draw a long, curved line and on the left side draw a shorter line. At the bottom, draw a curved, horizontal line to close off the guide for the top of Donald's torso. Use two short lines to connect the torso to the head and create the guide for the neck.
