Step 10: Use the main circle as a guide to draw the rest of the dachshund's head.
Step 11: Using the line as a guide, draw the dachshund's front legs. Draw lightly at first. When you like what you have, go ahead and darken it. Make the dog's leg thicker on top and draw some bumps along the way to represent the dog's joints. Draw a few lines at the bottom for the toes and small shapes at the end of the toes for the dog's nails. Draw only the visible portion of the other leg the same way.
Step 12: Draw the dachshund's hind legs using the same techniques as the front legs. Draw lightly at first to get the structure right, then darken it. Don't forget the bumps for the dog's joints and the toes! Now draw the other similar-looking leg peeking from the other side.
Step 13: Use the connecting lines as guides to draw the rest of the dachshund's body. Draw a few curved lines along the neck to represent folds of skin. Using straight lines for the body creates a smooth-haired dachshund. For a long-haired coat, use quick, short strokes along the dog's body.
Step 14: Draw the dachshund's tail using the initial line as a guide.
