You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1. Block your shape

Start your dog when all drawings begin: a block of basic shapes. Use circles and ovals to create different shapes found on your child’s face and draw very dim horizontal and vertical guides to help you align your eyes, snout, etc.

Work to fine-tune your block-prints until you have a basic contour.

Step 2. Light light

Once you have a clean border, clean the sketch by deleting your instructions. Start covering feathers and features. For the darkest parts of the dog, such as small black eyes and nose, use a dark 6B pencil.

Step 3. Determine the texture

This step completely depends on the breed and the type of dog – the short, straight coat of our dog is much different from the shaggy hair. But no matter what type of feather you are drawing, you want to create a shadow using the 2B pencil guides. Do not get caught trying to draw every single feather.
As you work, build tones and details of feathers by increasing your pressure to identify darker parts of your drawing. For a darker effect, switch to a 4B pencil.

Step 4. Use an eraser

Cast a kneading eraser into a thin spot with flat edges and gently stroke it over shaded areas of the coat. This takes a little bit of graphite from the smaller parts and makes the coat even more lifelike.

Step 5. Add the final details

Keep working on fur using your different pencils until you are satisfied with the way your students look on paper!
