Step 3

Add guidelines for the capybaras legs, ears and mouth.

Step 4

Draw the shapes of the legs, snout and ears.

Step 5

Draw the toes and eye of the animal. Pay attention to the shape of the snout.

Step 6

Add nostrils. Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail.

Step 7

Contour the capybara, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add the ground. Erase all guidelines.
