STEP 1. Okay first what you are going to do is make two circles. One regular circle for the head and on oblong circle for his body.   STEP 2. Next draw the lining for the bottom half of his nose/mouth. This part of the sketch looks like a butt. Then draw two more circles for the hippos legs. If you notice on the far back of the sketch start to shape his body.   STEP 3. As you can see the hippo has stubby legs, so the circles that you drew for his legs were actually a base for his feet too. Move up to the face and give the hippo some nostrils and one eye. In this sketch he has his eye closed.   STEP 4. What you are going to do in this part of the drawing is define his head and start adding some blubber to his neck and hind leg.   STEP 5. Add more blubber detail to the hippos neck and add an ear for him to hear.   STEP 6. As you can see the hippo is taking form. and is practically done all you do here is add toe nails more blubber definition and erase the frame lines from your sketch.   STEP 7. There you have it a finished hippo all that you need to do here if you want is color him. After it's all done you should come out with this finished product. Good job   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3.
