For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin.
Step 1: Draw a circle near the top of the paper as a guide for the Pomeranian's head. First draw four small marks to indicate the height and width of the circle, then connect the marks using curved lines. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make mistake. But the circle doesn't have to be perfect. It's just a guide. If you're having a hard time drawing the circle, trace the outer rim of a glass, a lid or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw a horizontal line across the Pomeranian's head. This construction line will help you place the dog's facial features later. Add a curved vertical line on the top left side of the head for another construction line.
Step 3: Draw a small circle on the lower left side of the head as a guide for the Pomeranian's muzzle. Pay attention to the size and placement of this small circle in relation to the rest of the head.
Step 4: On top of the dog's head, draw two small, triangle- like shapes as guides for the ears. The Pomeranian's ears should be pretty small in relation to the rest of the head.
Step 5: Draw a big circle under the head, on the right, as a guide for the front part of the body. Pomeranians are small, so don't draw the circle too big. Don't overlap the circle for the head at the top.
