I'd like to re-create this image using circuitikz. However, I have never used it before and I am struggling to wrap my head around it (I have watched youtube videos and flicked through the manual).

enter image description here

I have tried things that seem to make sense to me but they just seem to mess the circuit up.

Could someone please help me here?

\begin{circuitikz}[american] \draw
     (0,0) to[R=$r_d$,o-] (0,3)    
           to[R=$R_S$,-o] (0,6)

\usepackage[european, americancurrents]{circuitikz}


    \coordinate (A);
    \node at (A) [right] {A};
    \draw (A) to[short, o-] ++(0,-\dy)
        coordinate (j-1)
        to[R=$R_\text{S}$, *-*] ++(0,-\ylen)
        coordinate (j-2)
        to[short] ++(0,-\dy)
        coordinate (j-3)
        to[R=$r_\text{d}$, *-*] ++(0,-\ylen)
        coordinate (j-4)
        to[short, -o] ++(0,-\dy)
        node [right] {K};

    \draw (j-1) -- ++(\dx, 0) to[current source] ++(0, -\ylen) -- (j-2);
    \draw (j-3) -- ++(\dx, 0) to[current source] ++(0, -\ylen) -- (j-4);
    \draw (j-3) -- ++(-\dx, 0) to[C] ++(0, -\ylen) -- (j-4);


I recommend to take a look at the tikz documentation to see how coordinates can be specified (pages 37--38). It also explains the ++ syntax which I have used.
