Please PAUSE the "How to Draw a Chihuahua" 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 chihuahua’s body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. Instead, pay attention to the space between the circles. If they're too far apart, the chihuahua dog will be too long. The circle on the right should be a bit smaller than the one on the left.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the upper left side as a guide for the chihuahua's head. This circle should be about the same size as the second circle, and its edge should almost touch the first circle.
Step 3: Draw two intersecting lines inside the head to help you place the chihuahua dog's facial features later on.
Step 4: Draw a small circle on the lower half of the head as a guide for the chihuahua's muzzle.
Step 5: Draw two triangle-like shapes on top of the chihuahua's head as guides for the dog's ears.
