In the beginning, draw the head of a hyena. To do this, draw a triangle with rather rounded ends. The top should be slightly sharp.

Depict two small black dots for the eyes, and sketch small eyebrow lines on top. Draw a horizontal oval nose at the bottom.

Within each ear, draw small pointed ovals for the inside. Draw a small fluff of hair between the ears on the head.

Draw lines on the hyena’s legs that visually divide the limbs into two parts. This is a typical pattern on the legs of these animals.
