You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
The 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 circle on the left side of the paper as a guide for the front part of the Dalmatian's body. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: On the right side, draw a smaller circle as a guide for the back section of the Dalmatian's body . This circle should be about one-third the size of the first one. Don't place the circles too far apart.
Step 3: Above the first circle, draw another circle as a guide for the dog's head. This circle should be around the same size as the second circle or about one-third the size of the first one. Don't draw this circle too high up, otherwise the Dalmatian's head will be too long.
Step 4: Draw a horizontal line across the head as a guide to help you add the Dalmatian's facial features later. On the top, left side of the horizontal line, add a curved, vertical line for another construction line.
Step 5: Draw a small circle on the bottom half of the head as a guide for the Dalmatian's muzzle. A small sliver of this circle on the lower, left side should be outside of the head circle.
