Step 1

The head is created from a large oval shape. Make it as large as possible. The body is illustrated with a small square. The smaller the better. Of course, keep a little bit of room inside the body so that more elements can be added later on.

The legs and the paws are represented by a series of oval shapes. Notice how the back legs are slightly higher than the front ones.

Step 3

The ears are drawn using a few curved lines. This cartoon puppy needs small ears with pointed ends like shown on the illustration below. The eyes are made from large circles. However, these circles must be close without touching each other.

Step 4

Pupils are made from small oval shapes. The nose is also made from a single oval shape. Notice how the nose is located below the eyes and a small space is visible below it so that you can add the mouth later. The tail is drawn using a small triangle.

Around the left eye, draw a large circle to illustrate the black patch seen in the colored version. You can also add small oval shapes in the pupils. The mouth is made from a long thin line.
