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 a small circle as a guide for the Jack Russell terrier's body. First make four small marks to indicate its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling drawing the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the left the same way. This will be a guide for the back of the Jack Russell terrier's body. This circle should be slightly smaller than the first one. Don't draw the circles too far apart or your dog will look like a dachshund!
Step 3: Draw yet another circle on the top, right side as a guide for the head. This circle should be about one- third the size of the first one. Don't draw the head too high up , otherwise the dog's head will be too long.
Step 4: Draw a sloping horizontal line across the head to help you add the Jack Russell terrier's facial features later. Add a curved vertical line on the top right side of the head for another construction line.
Step 5: Draw a small circle on the bottom, right side of the head as a guide for the Jack Russell terrier's muzzle. The top of this circle should touch the construction line, and the bottom should be outside of the head slightly.
