Step 10: Lightly sketch the puppy's eyeballs inside the head as two small circles. When you get the size and placement of the circles right, darken the lines. Add a few more lines around the eyeballs to create the outer shape of the eyes. Use a series of quick, short strokes above the eyes for the fur. Add more strokes higher up above the eyes to emphasize the thick brow.
Step 11: Inside each eye, off to the side, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. In the middle of each eye, draw a big oval for the pupils. Shade in the rest of the puppy's eyes. Don't overlap the tiny glare circles. As you shade the irises, use a value that's slightly lighter than the pupils.
Step 12: Draw the nose inside the muzzle, near the left side, by first lightly sketching a small oval. When you get the size and placement right, darken the lines. Use quick, short strokes at the top. Curve the sides of the oval inward to create the puppy's nostrils. Shade in the right nostril. Now darken the bottom part of the circle and add a small vertical line at the bottom.
Step 13: Follow the basic path of the initial circle to create the left side of the muzzle. Curve the line for the muzzle to the right all the way to the other side of the circle to create the mouth. Use quick, short strokes as you follow the lower edge of the initial circle to create the German shepherd puppy's fuzzy chin.
Step 14: Use the triangle-like shape on the top right side of the head as a guide to draw the puppy's first ear. Follow the basic path of the guide as you use quick, short strokes to create the ear's furry texture. Add a few longer strokes within the shape of the ear to create the ear's opening.
