You can print out the base construction lines and start drawing on tracing paper or you can draw the grid layout yourself using the following steps… Show more

1) Draw a rectangle that will define the conditional proportions and boundaries of the chosen drawing.

2) From the middle of the rectangle, draw one vertical and one horizontal line equally dividing the shape.

3) Draw another horizontal line equally dividing the upper half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a horizontal line equally dividing the bottom half of the rectangle.

4) Draw a vertical line equally dividing the left half of the rectangle. Similarly, draw a vertical line equally dividing the right half of the rectangle.

**Step 1**

Mark off the width and height of the picture. Draw two ovals, which will become the head and body of the goat. Define the shape of the head.

**Step 2**

Define the shapes of the goat’s’s back and neck.

**Step 3**

Draw guidelines for the legs and mark the knees. Add a small circle for a snout.

**Step 4**

Draw the shapes of the goat’s legs, jaws and horns.

**Step 5**

Outline the ears and hoofs. Add a light line for a tail.

**Step 6**

Define the joints. Delineate an eye, nose, mouth, the horns and the tail.

**Step 7**

Work on the whole figure, paying attention to details.

**Step 8**

Contour the goat, trying to vary the thickness and blackness of the line. Draw more details and grass. Erase all guidelines.
