I draw looking at the computer screen. In order to make sure that the picture looks similar, I periodically apply it to the screen next to the photo and compare them.
We will draw a tapir in accordance with the most classical sequence. First, we will depict the body, it is oval. The withers and croup protrude slightly and the back is slightly concave between them.
Tapirs are perissodactyls and they have four toes with hoofs on the front legs, and three on the hind.
The head is large. The nose along with the upper lip are extended forward and form a movable proboscis. Eyes are large, ears are small.
