1. How To Draw A Cartoon Dog
Dogs are cute. There are no two ways about it. But do you know what is cuter?
A cartoon dog, of course! So let’s start with a simple step by step drawing of a cartoon dog for beginners.
You will need:
Pencil, eraser, drawing paper, colored pencils or crayons
How to draw:
Start by drawing six small, conjoined circles at the center of the page, slightly towards the bottom. The circles should be of the same size. You can first draw a straight line and then draw the circles on it, if it helps. See figure 1.1.
Make the body of the dog by drawing a small semi-oval starting between the first two circles and ending between the third and the fourth. With the top of the oval as the starting point, draw the rest of the body as shown in figure 1.2. You have the head and the body of the dog ready.
Draw small lines inside the four base circles, as shown in figure 1.3 to complete the paws.
Add ears to the head and a small tail to the rear end, as illustrated in figure 1.4.
Add details like the eyes, nose, and the brows. See figure 1.5.
Your cartoon dog is ready to be colored.
