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 page as a guide for the front part of the samoyed dog's body. First make four marks to determine 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 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 left of the circle, draw a big arc by first making a small mark on the far left. Connect the mark to the circle using long, curved lines to complete the shape of the arc guide.
Step 3: On the top, right, draw another circle using the four-marks method as a guide for the samoyed's head. Pay attention to the size of this circle. It should be about half the size of the first circle. Draw this circle close to the first one. The bottom edges should overlap a bit.
Step 4: Draw a horizontal line across the head to help you place the samoyed's facial features later. Draw a shorter, vertical construction guide line on the top, right side.
Step 5: Draw a small circle on the lower, right side of the head as a guide for the samoyed's muzzle. This circle should fit snugly between the horizontal guide line and the bottom edge of the circle.
