Step 15: Use the second line from the left as a guide to draw the first front leg. Lightly sketch the leg around the guide. When you get the shape right, darken the lines. On the lower, left side of the shape, draw a couple of curved lines for the dog's toes. At the end of the toes, draw the nails. The shape of the leg should be slightly wider at the top and narrow at the bottom before connecting to the paw. Add a series of short, curved lines within the shape of the basset hound's leg for the loose skin.
Step 16: Use the line on the left as a guide to draw the other front leg the same way. A big part of the leg will be blocked by the basset hound's body and first leg, so only draw the visible part at the bottom.
Step 17: Use the angled line on the far right as a guide to draw the basset hound's first hind leg. Lightly sketch the leg around the guide. Notice how the shape bends in the middle for the joint. Make the top part of the leg wider than the bottom. When you get the shape right, darken the lines. Use curved lines at the bottom for the toes. Draw the dog's nails on the tips of the toes as tiny triangular shapes. Add a few short, curved lines inside the leg for the wrinkles on the loose skin.
Step 18: Use the last line under the body as a guide to draw the basset hound's other hind leg the same way. The top part of this leg will be hidden behind the first hind leg, so only draw the visible lower half.
Step 19: Use the remaining lines and shapes as guides to draw the rest of the basset hound's body. Simply darken the outer edges of the initial guides to create the shape of the body. Draw a few short, curved lines along the way for the wrinkles on the loose skin. Draw the shape of the dog's tail around the guide on the top, right side. Use short strokes for a furry texture.
