STEP 1. There are typically, many types of dogs like German Shepherds, Great Danes, Yorkies, Pugs, Huskies, etc. When drawing in an anime style, we have to replicate those key features of our favorite dogs. For instance, if we were to draw an anime Great Dane puppy/dog, we would have to exaggerate the droopy muzzle, huge paws, and the floppy ears. So before you start sketching an anime styled canine, research and reference as much as possible, before you imprint your decisions onto paper!   STEP 2. With that being said in the above steps, another thing to keep in mind is the various styles to draw your canines. Here I draw two styled puppies, which is the cute big eyed - stubby pup, and the medium length legged and small head pup, with big eyes. There's so many styles that you can practice with in order to develop your own. Reference, observe your favorite artists, and practice until you start molding into your own.   STEP 3. Here's a few more styles of the many anime styles you can draw adult dogs. Style 3 is a long legged, kind of celestial looking creature with a bit of mysterious presence. The long features give this creature a bit of uniqueness. The 4th style, is just a standard bodied dog with proportionate features, and cartoony facial features. Mix and match, friends!   STEP 4. Here's a method I use ALL the time when I draw paws. I start to draw the silhouette shape of the paw, then I work outwards from the smallest paw toe, to the two largest, and then the slightly hidden fourth paw toe. Afterwards, I sketch the details which add realism/zest to the overall paw!   STEP 5. Begin with a large circle for the head, then sketch in a facial guideline.   STEP 6. Next, begin sketching out the shape of the anime dog's face which should include the cute floppy ears. You will also need to add some fluff on top of the head.   STEP 7. You are now ready to draw out the large circles for the eyes making sure that the top lid line is thick and or bold. Draw the small nose, then draw in the mouth and chin.   STEP 8. Almost done I promise. Begin sketching out the chest like you see here, then draw in the stubby legs and small paws. I drew one of the legs in a lifting position for a cute action pose.   STEP 9. Draw out the small back, then the two hind legs and feet. Add detailing to the front lifted paw, then proceed to step ten.   STEP 10. Lastly, draw in the small tail, then add the toe lines on each paw. You will need to erase the mistakes you have made along the way.   STEP 11. That's it, you're all done. Now you can color in your pooch to perfection. I hope you like drawing this anime style dog.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8. Step 9. Step 10. Step 11.
