Step 10: Near the tip of the muzzle, lightly sketch a small, triangular shape for the basset hound's nose. When you get the size and position right, darken the top line and make the sides curve down. On the left side, curve the line inward for the nostril. Make the line for the dog's nostril at the end thicker. Make the shape thinner at the bottom and draw a short, vertical line at the bottom.
Step 11: Under the dog's nose, draw a line that curves down and to the left for the mouth. Follow the path of the guide but make the shape smaller. Stretch the line in toward the circle. Under the mouth, on the right side, draw a couple of curved lines and short strokes for the basset hound's loose skin.
Step 12: Draw a vertical line to the left of the front of the muzzle for the other side of the muzzle. Darken the top part of the guide but make the line curvier to finish the basset hound's muzzle.
Step 13: Use the long shape on the right as a guide to draw the basset hound's droopy ear. Follow the path of the guide but make the shape curvier as you darken the lines. Inside the shape, on the left side, draw a long, curved line for the folded section of the dog's ear.
Step 14: Use the initial circle as a guide to draw the rest of the dog's head. Darken the top part of the head but curve the left side more to create the thick brow. Make the top of the head flatter. Below the muzzle, draw a few curved lines for the loose skin on the throat. Under the throat, draw a long, curved line for the basset hound's other ear peeking from behind the head.
