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 paper as a guide for the front part of the schnauzer's body. First make four marks to determine the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. 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, draw another circle the same way as a guide for the back portion of the schnauzer's body. This circle should be about two-thirds the size of the first circle. The edges of the two circles should touch.
Step 3: On the top, right side, draw yet another circle as a guide for the dog's head. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too. This circle should be about one-third the size of the first circle. Leave a small space between this circle and the first circle for the schnauzer's neck.
Step 4: Draw a curved, horizontal line across the head to help you place the schnauzer dog's facial features later. Draw a short, curved, vertical line on the top, right side for another construction guide.
Step 5: On the lower, right side of the head, draw another small circle as a guide for the muzzle. Use the four-marks method and sketch lightly to draw this circle. This circle should be a tiny bit smaller than the schnauzer's head. Only a small portion of this circle should overlap the head. The circles should be similar to a Venn diagram.
