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 bulldog's head. To draw the circle, first make four marks to determine its height and width. Space out the marks equally. Then connect the marks using curved lines. With every step, 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 bulldog's facial features later. Draw this line slightly higher than the middle. Add a curved, vertical line on top, left for another guide.
Step 3: Draw a small oval as a guide for the bulldog's nose where the construction guide lines meet.
Step 4: Inside the head, on the left side, draw another circle as a guide for the dog's muzzle. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle. Use the construction lines as guides for its placement. The bulldog's nose should be inside this circle close to its top edge. The lower, left side edge of this circle should touch the edge of the main head circle.
Step 5: To the right of the muzzle, just above the horizontal guide, draw a small circle as a guide for the bulldog's first eye. To the left of the muzzle, draw a small half-circle as a guide for the other eye that will be hiding behind the dog's muzzle.
