How to draw a cute Dog with this how-to video and step-by-step drawing instructions. Easy animals to draw for beginners and kids.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Draw an irregular circle to outline the shape of the dog’s head.
Emphasize both sides of its face when drawing the head to form chubby cheeks. This will definitely make your dog look more adorable!
Make sure that the outline of your dog’s face is drawn in the upper part of the paper. This ensures that there will be enough space at the bottom for its body.
Sketch the dog’s head and body
Draw the outline of the dog’s body just below its head. As you can see in the illustration, its body is positioned to the side because the dog is looking towards its left side.
You can choose to follow the figure in the illustration exactly or position the dog any way you want!
Put a collar on the dog’s neck
Draw a long, narrow rectangle across the dog’s neck to create the collar. Don’t forget to adorn the collar with a dangling bauble at the bottom!
Feel free to style and design the collar any way you want! You can add a pattern on the collar or customize the ornament that hangs down the collar.
Draw a dog’s front paw
Draw the dog’s front paw with a paw just below its chest. Don’t forget to add three toes on each foot!
You can create the feet by drawing separate curves to form the toes.
Next, Draw the dog’s hind legs
Now that we have successfully drawn the dog’s front paws, it’s time to draw the front paws at the back to complete its set of legs.
Create a bent hind leg by drawing a curved line towards the bottom of the dog’s back. Then draw a foot with three toes just below the foot.
Since the dog is facing sideways, only one hind leg should be visible, as shown in the illustration.
Then Draw a Dog’s Tail
Shape your dog’s tail by drawing a narrow, curved line with a tapered end. Draw the outline of the tail upwards to make your dog seem happy and interested.
In the illustration we drew a pointed tail, but you can certainly draw a hairy tail or any shape or form of tail you like.
Then draw a pair of dog ears
Continue by drawing an ear on each side of the dog’s face. We think the giant drooping or folded ears look best, as shown in the illustration.
However, don’t hesitate to draw the ear any way you want, whether it’s standing upright or cropped.
Remember, the texture of a dog’s ears largely depends on the breed and the emotions they’re feeling.
Now, Draw Nose and Mouth
On the bottom part of the face, draw an upside down triangle to outline the dog’s nose.
Then, draw two curved lines upwards connecting each other to create a lip line. Now, to structure the mouth, draw a V-shaped curve just below the lips. Don’t forget to add a curve inside the mouth to create the tongue!
Draw eyes to complete the drawing
Complete your drawing by completing your dog’s facial features.
Draw two vertical ovals above its nose to outline the eyes. Then draw two small circles inside the eyes. Shade the entire eye except for the small circles.
These two little circles with no ghosting will act as the “glitters” in your dog’s eyes, adding a more dramatic effect to his facial expressions.
Now comes the most fun part — choose and color your dog drawing!
