The written step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Make two marks on your paper, one at the top and one at the bottom. This will determine the height of your Earth. On the sides, draw two more marks to determine the width of your Earth. Keep the marks at equal distances. Now connect all the marks using curved lines to create a big circle shape. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. Draw the same curvature for each connecting line for a more circular shape. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a bowl or a lid.
Step 2: Draw a small, V-shaped line at the top for the first part of North America. To the left, draw a wavy line. Your lines don't have to look exactly like mine. As long as they're similar, it will still look like planet Earth.
Step 3: Draw another wavy line below for more of North America. We're not drawing a photorealistic Earth, so don't worry if this isn't exactly what the coast of Canada looks like.
Step 4: Draw the line downward. About halfway on the circle, draw a thin, U- shaped line for the Florida peninsula.
Step 5: Below that, draw a wavy line for the Gulf of Mexico.
