Step 10: Use the small circle as a guide to draw the rest of the chihuahua dog's muzzle. Draw a line from the nose to the left eye to form the top of the dog's muzzle. Then draw a line below the chihuahua's nose that splits in two to form the mouth. Draw a couple of lines using quick, short strokes to represent fur below the mouth for the chin.
Step 11: Use the shapes on top of the head as guides to draw the chihuahua's ears. Make the ears shorter and rounder. Draw the bottom or base of the ears a little narrower. Draw a few quick, short strokes for the fur within the ears and for more structure.
Step 12: Use the original circle as a guide to draw the rest of the chihuahua dog's head. The left side of the head, below the eye, should come in toward the chihuahua's muzzle to make the eye bulge out a bit. Draw a few more lines within the head to shape the chihuahua dog's face more. Use quick, short strokes to represent fur.
Step 13: Using the line as a guide, draw the chihuahua's front legs. Draw lightly at first to get the structure of the dog's first leg right. When you're happy with what you have, go ahead and darken it. The leg is thicker on top and bends forward a bit. Draw a few curved lines at the end of the dog's paw for the toes and nails. Draw the leg on the other side by using the first one as a template. Part of it is hidden by the leg in the front, so only draw the visible portion.
Step 14: Use the other line as a guide to draw the hind legs the same way as the front legs. Remember to draw the leg lightly at first, and only darken it when you have the structure right. The dog's hind legs are thicker at the base and angle back more than the front legs. Don't forget the toes and nails at the bottom! Draw the chihuahua's leg on the other side using the same technique.
