Start sketching cartoon dog by drawing its face. Outline the eyes using curved lines. Widen one eye to form the tip of the long snout or muzzle.
At the end of the muzzle, draw a circle. This is the dog’s nose. Use curved lines to trace one side of the dog’s face and its forehead. Above the eyes, use curved lines to enclose the pointed brow
Draw the dog’s open and smiling mouth. Below the nose, draw a wide curved line in the shape of a “W”. Let it meet the nose on one side. On the other hand, extend the arm of the letter “W” to the corner of the mouth.
Below, use curved lines to outline the lower jaw, the inside of the mouth, and the tongue. Line the corners of the mouth with short lines. In front of the muzzle, draw two small, triangular teeth.
Use curved lines to enclose the rounded shapes of the dog’s ears. Then, use long, curved lines to trace the top of the head, neck, and side of the body.
Extend a long, curved line below the lower jaw to form the chest. Then use a pair of long curved lines to draw the legs. At the bottom, use overlapping curves to create the toes and wrap the foot.
Outline the chest with a curved line and draw the rest of the front legs. Again, use curves. Those in the toes should overlap.
Draw the hind legs, bent into a sitting position, using curved lines. Again, the toes should use overlapping curves.
Draw the other leg of the sitting dog. Use curved lines for the back, arched legs, and rounded feet. Draw your feet with short lines.
Complete your dog cartoon sketch by drawing its wagging tail. Extend two curved lines from the dog’s hips and let them meet at a sharp point. Next to the tail, sketch an open mark pattern using curves to simulate tail movement.
