To draw this cartoon Puppy in a Christmas Stocking step by step, follow along with the video tutorial below and pause the video after each step to draw at your own pace. You may find it easier to follow the step-by-step drawings below the video. The new lines in each step are shown in red, so you'll know exactly what to draw next. You may want to open the video in a new tab and use both drawing methods. Take your time and draw at your own pace.
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 two curved lines next to each other for the cartoon Christmas puppy's eyes. The lines should look like the letter C. 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 and make them thicker. Draw the eye on the right the same way. Sketch lightly at first to get the shape right. This eye should be a little bit smaller than the first one because of the way the puppy dog's head will be turned. When you get the size and shapes right, darken the line and make it thicker. Pay attention to the space between the eyes. Don't draw them too close to each other.
Step 2: Under each curved line, draw a small circle for the irises. Place the Christmas puppy's iris on the left close to the middle under the curved line. Place the iris on the right close to the left side under the curved line.
Step 3: Inside each iris, on the top, left side, draw a tiny circle for highlights. In the middle of each iris, draw a small circle and shade them in for the puppy dog's pupils. Don't overlap the tiny highlight circles as you shade the pupils. Draw another tiny circle inside each iris, on the lower, right side for more highlights.
Step 4: Below the cartoon Christmas puppy's eyes, near the middle, draw a small oval on its side for the nose. Inside the nose, draw a smaller, thinner oval for a highlight on the nose. Shade the inside of the dog's nose but don't overlap the highlight oval.
Step 5: Make a small mark under the nose to indicate where the bottom of the head will be. Extend the right side of the mark farther right and curve it up next to the eye for the first cheek. Extend the left side too and curve the line upward for the Christmas puppy's other cheek. The left side should be farther from the eye. Sketch lightly at first and only darken the lines when you get the shape right.
