Sketch the Head of The Dog
Start by sketching the shape of your dog’s head. Keep it simple and don’t worry about proportions yet.
Draw an oval shape for its head with an additional oval shape at the top where its muzzle will go. Add its nose by making a dot in the center of the lower oval or circle. Add some curves to represent the mouth and snout on either side of that initial dot made for the nose.
Draw two small ovals for its eyes draw four lines around the outside of each eye to make pupils which should be placed close together about halfway up from the bottom half of the face below or next to where you drew its mouth and snout (depending on what type of dog it is).
Outline the dog’s head and snout so that it looks like one continuous line… Using curved lines, add ears on both sides of the head near where you put its mouth/snout, and make sure that both sides are symmetrical. Finish off your dog’s face with whiskers and a round tongue poking out of his mouth!
Draw His Body
Grab a large oval and draw it around the head shape. Extend the oval to form the body of the dog, leaving a space in between for his front legs.
Draw two circles for his front paws and then use a curved line to connect them at the bottom. Now draw two small ovals for his back paws and connect them with an arch as you did with his front paws.
Draw the tail by creating a few wavy lines emanating from the base.
Use curved lines to create the fur around his neck and backside, following his spine along with any other markings or spots he has on his body.
Draw the Legs and Feet of a Dog
The legs should be drawn as if they are coming out of the chest while the feet should be drawn as coming out of the leg. The more detail you want, the more time you will have to spend on this step. Remember that even though drawing can be a relaxing activity, it can also take a lot of patience.
Color your drawing (Optional)
Your dog drawing is finally coming to life! It’s time to color it in. The first thing you want to do is find a good color scheme. You’ll do the lightest shade of color on the inside, and the darkest shade of color on the outside. I chose white for my lightest tone and black for my darkest tone.
