Dog Drawing Instructions

Step 1

Start by drawing an oval shape. You can make a perfect oval or make it to be a bit more “boxy”. Nothing wrong if it’s more round. This will be the snout.

Step 2

Continue by making a inverted U shape above the oval you have previously drawn. This will be the head. Also make the nose. You can make it round or more of a triangle shape.

Step 3

Draw the ears. We think droopy or folded ears are the best, but you could also draw pointy, button or any other shape you want.

Step 4

Lets finish up the dog face. Draw two spots for eyes and two arches above the eyes for the eyebrows. Draw a straight line from the snout and a wavy line for the mouth.

Also make the front pair of legs.
