Step 1: Draw the Body

The body of a dog is sort of long and blob shaped with protrusions for the head, legs, and tail.

Step 2: Draw the Face

The critical components of a dog's face are the eyes, the nose, the mouth, and the ears. If you can draw these your dog will look great! :D

Step 3: Add Color

Dogs come in many different colors and you can choose whichever you like. I chose yellow because it is bright and will make the details stand out.

Step 4: Add Details

Now that your dog is almost complete it needs some details to make it just right. Details can be anything from claws and color pattern to sunglasses and hats.

Step 5: Consider How Cool Your Dog Looks

Look at that, your dog looks cool! In fact, I'd say it looks really cool! :D

    I'd rather draw on the computer because i can undo mistakes very easily on the computer but if I'm not around my computer i will draw elsewhere

    yeah, i understand. I have been doing some pixel art lately, and i am quite enjoying being able to quickly take back mistakes. Also, nice instructables so far! i like your art style. Sort of cartoony, but also realistic in ways.
