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 xoloitzcuintle dog's body. First make four marks to determine 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 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 a smaller circle the same way as a guide for the back part of the dog's body. This circle should be about half the size of the first one. Don't space them too far apart, or the xolo's body will be too long. Sketch lightly at first so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 3: Above the first circle, draw yet another circle as a guide for the xoloitzcuintle's head. Use the four-marks method to draw this circle too. This circle should be slightly smaller than the second one. Don't place this circle too high up, otherwise the dog's neck will be too long.
Step 4: Draw a curved, horizontal line across the head to help you place the xolo dog's facial features later. Draw a shorter, curved, vertical construction guide line on the top, left side.
Step 5: Draw a small circle on the lower, left side of the head as a guide for the xolo's muzzle. Use the construction lines as guides for placement. Part of this circle should stick out of the head. Pay attention to the size of this circle in relation to the dog's head.
