Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Cartoon Puppy" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
Written step-by-step video tutorial:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two curved lines next to each other for the cartoon puppy's eyes. Pay attention to the placement of the lines. Don't draw them too close together. Make the lines thick to represent eyelashes. The shape of the curved lines should be similar to a half-circle. Sketch these lines lightly at first. When you get the shape and placement right, darken them.
Step 2: Under each line, draw a small circle for the irises. The circle on the left should be close to the right tip of the line. The circle on the right should be closer to the middle of the line. Above each eye, draw a small curved line for the cartoon puppy's eyebrows.
Step 3: Inside each iris, off to the side, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. In the middle of each iris, draw a big dot for the puppy's pupils.
Step 4: Near the lower, right side of the eye on the left, draw a shape similar to an oval for the puppy's nose. The nose should be curved at the top like an oval but pointy as the bottom.
Step 5: Below the nose, draw a long, curved, horizontal line for the cartoon puppy's mouth.
