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: Lightly sketch two small ovals for the cartoon golden retriever's eyes. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake. When you get the shapes right, darken the lines. Inside each eye, draw two tiny circles for highlights. Shade in the dog's eyes but don't overlap the tiny highlight circles. The eye on the right should be a tiny bit bigger than the eye on the left.
Step 2: Below the eye on the left, draw a small oval on its side for the dog's nose. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape and position right. Inside draw a smaller oval for highlight. Shade the golden retriever's nose but don't overlap the highlight. The nose should be only slightly bigger than the eyes.
Step 3: Lightly sketch a curved line on the left side for the golden retriever's muzzle. When you get the shape of the line right, darken it. The line should start to the left of the eyes, then curve under the dog's nose and stretch to the right.
Step 4: On the left, lightly sketch a line that curves up high and to the right for the top of the golden retriever's head. When you get the shape right, darken the line. At the top, draw three small, spike-like shapes for fur. Pay attention to how high above the eyes the top of the dog's head is.
Step 5: To the right of the head, draw a big triangular shape for the first ear. The top part of the ear consists of two short, curved lines that slope down to the right a bit. Along the path of the curved lines, draw a couple of small, spike-like shapes for fur. The bottom part of the golden retriever's ear should be similar to a big letter V with a rounded bottom.
