Step 6: Draw two triangle-like shapes on the top of the border collie's head as guides for the dog's ears.
Step 7: Draw a series of lines that connect the major shapes to form the border collie's body. Draw a curved line on the right side for the tail.
Step 8: Draw four lines under the border collie's body as guides for the legs. Don't draw the lines too long, and bend them to indicate where the dog's leg joints will be.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 9: Lightly sketch the border collie's eyes inside the head using the lines as guides for placement. Darken the outline of the eyes more. The shape for the eyes should be similar to little footballs. Add a tiny dot in the middle of each eye for the pupils. Shade the inside of the eyes except for a small circle to represent glare. When you shade the dog's eye, use a value that's lighter than the pupil. Draw a few lines around the border collie's eyes for extra detail. The lines represent the skin and fur around the eyes. Use quick, short strokes above the eyes for the furry brow.
