To draw this cartoon Dachshund 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.
Below you can watch a Narrated 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 dachshund's eyes. Pay attention to the distance between the eyes. Don't place them too close together. When you get the position and shapes of the eyes right, darken the lines. Inside each eye, draw a couple of tiny circles for highlights. Shade the cartoon dog's eyes but don't overlap the tiny highlight circles. The eye on the left should be slightly smaller because of the way the head will be turned.
Step 2: Below the eye on the left, draw another small oval for the dog's nose. The oval for the nose should be similar to the ovals for the eyes, but it should be turned on its side. Inside the nose, near the top, draw a thinner oval for a highlight. Shade the dachshund's nose but don't overlap the thin highlight oval.
Step 3: To the left of the dachshund's nose, draw a curved line for the side of the head. This line should be similar to the letter c but the bottom part should stretch far off to the right. Don't draw this line too far down below the nose.
Step 4: High above the dachshund's eyes, draw a long, curved line for the top part of the head. Pay attention to how high above the head this line is. The left side of the line should be very close to the eye on the left.
Step 5: On the right side of the dog's head, draw the ear using a series of curved lines. Start with a short line at the top. On the right side, draw a longer line that curves down. At the bottom, draw a U-shaped line that curves back up to complete the shape.
