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 as a guide for the front part of the greyhound's body. First make four small marks to indicate the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling drawing the circle, trace the outer rim of a coin, a lid or any other object with a circular edge.
Step 2: Draw another circle to the right as a guide for the second half of the dog's body. Use the four marks to draw this circle the same way. This circle should be a lot smaller than the first circle. Don't draw the circles too close together, otherwise your greyhound will be too short.
Step 3: Draw another circle on the top, left side as a guide for the head. Greyhounds have small heads, so this circle should be about one-fifth the size of the first one. Greyhounds also have long necks, so don't place this circle too close to the body.
Step 4: To the right of the head, draw a small arc as a guide for the dog's muzzle. The length of the arc should be about the same as the width of the head.
Step 5: Draw the guide for the greyhound's ear by first drawing a U-shaped line on the right side of the head. Then draw a short line at the top that connects to the head.
