Step 10: Lightly sketch the eyes inside the head as two small circles. When you get the size and position of the eyes right , darken the lines. The dog's eyes should be on top of the horizontal guide line and on either side of the vertical guide. Draw the sides of the eyes as pointy lines and shade them in with a dark value. The inner corners of the eyes should point down toward the muzzle. Add a few curved lines around the shiba inu's eyes for extra detail.
Step 11: Inside each eye, off to the side, draw a tiny circle to represent glare. In the middle of each eye, add a big dot using a dark value for the dog's pupils. Shade in the rest of the eye using a medium value. Don't shade the inside of the tiny glare circles as you shade the eyeballs.
Step 12: Inside the muzzle, near the left side, lightly sketch a small circle for the shiba inu's nose. When you get the size and position of the nose right, darken the top part but make it wavier. Curve the sides of the nose inward and add a big dot at the end of each line for the dog's nostrils. Darken the bottom edge but make it pointier. Inside the nose, at the bottom, draw a short line.
Step 13: Under the nose, draw a line for the first part of the mouth. On the left side, curve the line up for the side of the muzzle. Use the initial circle as a guide. On the right side, stretch the line toward the edge of the initial circle to complete the shiba inu's mouth.
Step 14: Draw a line from the nose to the eye on the left for the top part of the shiba inu dog's muzzle. Use the lower edge of the initial circle as a guide to draw the chin. Follow the basic path of the initial circle and darken the edge to create the chin. Stretch the line farther to the right to also create the rest of the lower jaw.
