Step 6: Draw a line from the lower, right side of the muzzle to the bottom edge of the head as a guide for the mouth. To the left, draw another long, curved line as a guide for the other side of the open mouth. This line starts on the lower, left side of the muzzle and ends on the lower, left side of the head. At the bottom, connect both lines using a wide, curved line to finish the guide for the German shepherd dog's open mouth.
Step 7: On top of the German shepherd dog's head, draw two big triangular lines as guides for the ears. These lines should be similar to an upside-down letter V. The shape on the right should be a bit bigger.
That's it for the guides! From this point on, press harder with your pencil for a more defined drawing.
Step 8: Draw the shape of the dog's eye around the small circle inside the head. Extend the sides of the eyes and make them pointy. The bottom edge should overlap the small circle. Sketch the German shepherd's eye lightly at first and only darken the lines when you get the shape right. Draw a curved line above and below the eye for the wrinkles on the skin.
Step 9: In the middle of the eye, draw a dot for the pupil. Next to the pupil, draw a tiny circle to represent glare or highlight. Draw a series of short strokes above and below the German shepherd dog's eye for a furry texture.
