Step 6: Draw a series of curved lines that connect the major shapes to form the German shepherd dog's body.
Step 7: Draw four lines under the body (two below each circle) as guides for the German shepherd dog's legs. Bend the lines near the middle to indicate where the joints will be. Bend them near the tip as well to indicate where you will draw the German shepherd dog's paws.
Step 8: Draw a short, curved line in between the hind legs as a guide for drawing the German shepherd dog's tail.
That's it for the initial sketch! From this point on, press harder with your pencil to get a more defined sketch.
Step 9: Draw the German shepherd dog's eyes inside the head by lightly sketching ovals. Use the lines as guides for placement. Darken the ovals using thick lines and make the ends pointier. Draw a tiny circle inside each eye to represent glare, then a slightly bigger dot for the pupils. Shade in the rest of the eye using a value that's lighter than the pupils. Add a few lines around the eyes for extra detail. Draw a few quick, short strokes over the eyes for the German shepherd dog's furry brow.
