The following is a video tutorial where the steps are WRITTEN out within the video:
For the first few steps, don't press down too hard with your pencil. Use light, smooth strokes to begin so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: Draw two circles as guides for the dachshund's body. They don't have to be perfect. They're just guides. The circle on the left should be smaller. Also pay close attention to the spacing of the circles. The farther apart the circles are, the longer your dog will be.
Step 2: Draw another circle on the top left side as a guide for the dachshund's head. The circle should be slightly smaller and floating just above the dog's body.
Step 3: Draw a vertical line that splits the dog's head in half as a guide for the ear. And draw an arc on the left side of the head as a guide for the dachshund's muzzle.
Step 4: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the dachshund's body. Draw a straight line on the right side for the dachshund dog's tail.
Step 5: Draw two lines under the dachshund's body (one below each circle) as guides for the dog's legs.
