Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Border Collie" video after each step to draw at your own pace.
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the border collie's body. The circles don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Don't place the circles too far apart, otherwise your dog will end up too long. The circle on the right should be smaller than the first one and should be placed a little higher.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the top, left side as a guide for the border collie's head. This circle should be about half the size of the left circle from step 1.
Step 3: Draw two curved, intersecting lines inside the border collie's head to help you draw facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw an oval on the lower half of the head as a guide for the border collie's muzzle. Use the lines as guides for the oval's placement.
Step 5: Draw a U-shaped arc under the oval as a guide for the lower part of the border collie's open mouth.
