The Time-Lapse (Speed Drawing) video:
To draw this Scottie Dog step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. 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 near the middle of the paper as a guide for the front part of the Scottish terrier's body. To draw the circle, first make four small marks to indicate its height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin 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: To the right, draw another circle as a guide for the back portion of the Scottish terrier's body. Draw this circle using the four-marks method as well. This circle should be about the same size as the first one, and the edges should touch.
Step 3: On the top, left side, draw yet another circle as a guide for the dog's head. This circle should be about half the size of the first circle. Don't place this circle too high up, otherwise your Scottie's neck will be too long.
Step 4: On the right side of the head, draw a sloping arc as a guide for the dog's muzzle. Scotties have pretty long muzzles, so don't draw this arc too short. Draw a sloping line across the entire head as a construction line to help you place the facial features later.
Step 5: On top of the head, draw two angled lines that are similar to an upside-down letter V as guides for the Scottish terrier's ears.
