Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Pug" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the pug's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Pay close attention to the spacing of the circles. If you place them too far apart, your pug dog will end up too long.
Step 2: Draw a slightly smaller circle on the top right side as a guide for the pug's head. Pugs have big heads, so don't draw the circle too small. Notice how it overlaps the other circle a bit.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the pug dog's head to help you place the facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a shape similar to a square with rounded corners on the lower part of the head as a guide for the pug's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw two triangle shapes on the top of the head as guides for the pug's ears.
