STEP 1. Lets start this step with a bunch of circles and lines that will guide you through the whole drawing the buffalo process. One big circle id for the middle of the body. The smaller butt end of the buffalo is the next circle to draw. Then the two circle shapes for the head and the lining for the leg in the front.   STEP 2. In this step what you are going to do next is draw the hind legs and the other front leg. You are also going to draw some simple sketching lines on the face to ensure that you get even eyes and a symmetrical looking face. Two lines that go across the forehead with one straight line going down the face and at the end of that line draw two smaller lines that go across the nose. Look at the image and draw in the guidelines for the legs.   STEP 3. Now in this part what you are going to do is start to sketch and draw in the face of the buffalo. When you draw the buffalo make sure you take your time with the detailing of the buffaloes coat that goes around the body and that is on the legs. Take your time and sketch in the ears which are not on top of the head but are in the sides of the face it seems. They have long shaggy hair and beards on their while face.   STEP 4. Now in this part you will be using your pencil more like a shading tool then drawing tool. Very lightly, sketch the definition lines around the head by shading in some of the hair that buffaloes process. Define and detail all four of the legs and make sure their hooves are evenly drawn and have that hairy age to it. Detail the snout as well. Buffaloes have wide nostrils and circle shaped eyes and with a blankness coming from them.   STEP 5. Here is your last step which is just basiclly sketching some more of the shaggy hair all over the buffalo except the back. Did you know that the buffaloes coat is so thick that snow literally just sits and melts on top of the buffaloes back? After you sketch in a sufficient amount of hair, erase all the guidelines and circles that you drew in step one. Look at your sketch and make sure it is perfect to your specifications. After you do all this move to the next step.   STEP 6. And there you have the American buffalo. You did an excellent job all you need to do is color the buffalo in and you are finally done.   Step 1.
