Erase all unnecessary lines. Using a soft pencil, outline the contours of the body. Shade in the ellipse around the one eye. Darken in the top of his back, ears and tail. Shade in the inside of his mouth and pupils.
Lightly shade in the rest of his body, leaving the belly and paws white.
Draw a horizontal, ellipse shape on the left lower side of the puppy’s face. Sketch another ellipse on the other side. Basically, you are drawing two elongated noodles to represent the sides of the puppy’s wide, smiling mouth.
Next, where you drew the oblong shape for the nose earlier, right in the middle draw a smaller, triangular-shape to make a button nose.

Domestic dogs display more diversity than any other animal species. There are at least three hundred and thirty-nine dog breeds currently in existence, in addition to more than thirty wild canine species. They range in height from a mere six inches to over six feet. The smallest dogs can recline in a teacup even as adults, while the largest weigh hundreds of pounds. Dogs can learn hundreds of verbal and non-verbal commands, ranking them among the smartest animals in the world.
Sketch the ears. Starting at the top of the head on one side, draw a puffy, oblong shape (almost like a half-donut). The bottom of it will stop at about the same height as the nose. Sketch the other ear.
Start by drawing a circle for the puppy’s head and an upward curving, noodle-shape for the body. The noodle shape should be drawn at an angle from the head. The shape for the body will be about the same size as the head just in a different shape.
Next, draw a vertical line from the top of the circle to the bottom of it. Then draw another slightly curved line going horizontal across the bottom-third of the circle. When you’re finished, your drawing will be of a puppy standing up.
We name them Lassie, Rover, Fido, and Spot. They’ve been called man’s best friend. They were likely among the first animals to be domesticated. They are the most widely distributed and abundant carnivore on earth. What animal fits this description? None other than the dog.
Dogs have been a part of human society for thousands of years. Dogs were domesticated from wolves, and as such are related also to jackals, wild dogs, dingoes, and foxes. Dogs have been employed throughout history, not only as pets, but also as hunters, protectors, shepherds, and as a means of transportation.
Draw the rest of the nose/muzzle area. On one side of the half-open circle, start drawing a long, oblong shape. It will come up along one eye. When you reach the top of the head, cross over to the other side and back down.
It will connect to the other side of the half-open circle.
Three Methods:Drawing a Puppy Face Using Different PencilsSketching a Simple Drawing of a PuppyDrawing a Cartoon PuppyCommunity Q&A
Use hatching and cross-hatching strokes to indicate light and dark areas of the puppy’s fur. To hatch, you simply draw small lines closely to each other. To cross-hatch, go over these same lines but in the opposite direction.
They will look like tiny patches when you’re finished.
Begin with the eyes. Draw the first eye in the shape of a tilted almond. Be sure to leave space in-between, though, for the puppy’s muzzle. Next, sketch the second eye in the same shape on the opposite side; try and make them match.
Now draw a circle in each eye for the eyeball. Then draw a smaller circle inside each for the pupils. At this point, everything is sketched in very lightly using a 4H pencil, which is one of your softer pencils.
Shade the pupils in with a 6B pencil. This will make them really dark. Only use this pencil for dark areas; otherwise it’s too hard to erase when you need to.
Spike is a brown dog belonging to the Pickles’ family on Nickelodeon’s hit cartoon series, Rugrats (1990-2006).

In this video tutorial, you will begin by writing a capital D and lowercase o and g. Follow along with the artist as she connects the letters using simple lines. Soon, you will have a unique and easy dog drawing.

Begin with the nose. Sketch a circle that’s a little flat at the top and narrow at the bottom. Right in the middle of the circle at the bottom, draw a line about one-third up. Then draw two small circles, one on each side of the line, for the puppy’s nostrils.
Draw the puppy’s legs. For the front legs, draw the first one in an oblong shape. Make it larger at the bottom to give the puppy big paws. Sketch a few lines for nails. Draw the opposite leg but make it a little bit smaller since we see the other paw first.
Now draw the back legs using the same oblong shape; make these legs a little smaller than the front. Most kitten and puppy cartoon characters have big paws, and it will make your puppy look extra-cute.
Sketch two oblong shapes for the eyebrows. Place them directly over the eyes. You want them to tilt down towards each other. They almost look like two puffy clouds.
Draw the outline of the head, mouth and ears. Take a look at where the eyes are to determine where to start to draw the head. You don’t want it too close to the eyes or too far. When you’ve sufficiently visualized where to begin, start to draw the head.
Practice! Drawing circles takes patience. You can try using a stencil at first to get the idea of it, and then you’ll eventually be able to draw it without a stencil. You can also try making a square and then cutting off the corners.
After that, just smooth it out.

In this video tutorial, you will learn to draw an adorable dog face using simple lines and shapes. The large eyes give this pup character.
Draw the muzzle around the nose. Make it in the shape of a half-open circle with the open part on the top. Leaving it open will allow you draw the rest of the muzzle. Leave plenty of space around the nose that you just drew above.
All you will need for many of these easy, step-by-step tutorials is a piece of paper and a pencil, pen, or marker. Some tutorials use guide lines – lines sketched lightly but erased before the drawing is completed. For these tutorials, use a pencil with a good quality eraser.
When I try to draw method two, it turns out to be scary instead of cute. Why?
Visualize how far up you think you should draw the head. Once you have an idea, make an oblong shape for the head. Sketch it in using light, pencil strokes. If you see that it’s a bit off, simply erase and lightly sketch it again.
