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 big circle as a guide for the rottweiler's head. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a bowl or a lid. 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: Draw a long, curved, horizontal line across the circle as a guide to help you place the rottweiler's facial features later. Draw this line slightly higher than the middle. Add a curved, vertical line on top for another guide.
Step 3: Directly on top of the horizontal line, draw two small circles as guides for the rottweiler's eyes. Pay attention to the size of these circles and to their distance from the vertical guide line.
Step 4: Draw another circle below the horizontal line as a guide for the rottweiler's muzzle. Use the four-marks method again to draw this circle. This circle should fit snugly between the horizontal construction line and the bottom edge of the big circle.
Step 5: Inside the muzzle, draw a small oval as a guide for the rottweiler's nose. This circle should be close to the top edge of the dog's muzzle. Don't draw it too small.
