The Written step-by-step video tutorial:
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 middle of the paper as a guide for the front part of the cavalier King Charles spaniel'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 to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a small, circular object like a coin or a lid. For a more detailed guide on the different ways to draw a circle check out this tutorial: Four simple ways to draw a circle.
Step 2: To the right, draw another circle as a guide for the back portion of the body. Draw this circle using the four- marks method too. It should be a bit smaller than the first circle. Draw the circles close together, otherwise the spaniel's body will be too long.
Step 3: On the top, left side, draw another circle as a guide for the cavalier King Charles spaniel's head. This circle should be a little over half the size of the first circle. The edges of the circles should touch so that the dog's neck doesn't end up too long.
Step 4: Draw a curved, horizontal line across the head to help you place the spaniel's facial features later. Add a curved, vertical line on the top, left side of the dog's head for another construction line.
Step 5: Draw a small circle inside the head as a guide for the dog's muzzle. Pay attention to the size of this circle in relation to the head. It should fit snugly between the horizontal construction line and the lower edge of the cavalier King Charles spaniel's head.
